It seems that Rousseau's moral psychology is in a similar place, but going in the opposite direction.
Rousseau says that all of us, including the powerful, are being driven crazy by the way each thinks others perceive him or her, and the implied comparisons between people. Such tormented people are unable to be virtuous.
Seneca's idea seems to be (in the opposite direction) that lack of virtue drives one crazy.
