Philosophical aspects of Horatiusʼ work
In the paper we try to grasp the philosophical aspects of the poetic work of Quintus Horatius Flaccus (65-68 BC.). We analyse supposed philosophical and ideological inspirations of his work, as well as the character of his time, the so-called Pax Augusta, which determined his efforts to give the Roman society a revival impetus. Further, we focus on the thesis claiming different forms of Horatius’ philosophical eclecticism with the intention to disprove the thesis: we propose a reasonable hypothesis about the unifying framework of Horatius philosophical view, namely his strong religious belief in the intervention of gods into individual and also collective events of mankind.
