Das Verhältnis des „Seneca philosophus" zum „Seneca tragicus" ist für die Interpretation von Senecas Tragödien noch immer entscheidend. Die Autorin widmet sich dem challenge im Bereich der Theologie. Sie untersucht inden philosophischen Schriften und Tragödien sein Verständnis von providentia und damit die Theodizeefrage sowie sein Verständnis des fatum und damit die Willensfreiheit.
