Short Link to this Quote:



In this quote, Seneca appears to be saying that a person should not be considered solely responsible for committing a criminal act if another has benefited or profited from the crime. Anyone who gains advantage from an illegal or unethical deed could also be seen as complicit, even if they did not directly perpetrate the act itself.

Seneca seems to be suggesting that profiting from wrongdoing can make one as culpable as the one who directly carried out the criminal plans or actions. So according to this interpretation, Seneca believes that both the perpetrator and the beneficiary are responsible in some way for the “crime.”
