Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new translation of the philosophical journey that has inspired luminaries from Matthew Arnold to Bill Clinton

Written by an intellectual Roman emperor, the Meditations offer a wide range of spiritual reflections developed as the leader struggled to understand himself and the universe. Marcus Aurelius covers topics as diverse as the question of virtue, human rationality, the nature of the gods, and his own emotions, spanning from doubt and despair to conviction and exaltation.

* Includes an introduction, chronology, explanatory notes, general index, index of quotations, and index of names

Synopsis:

Notes on the Roman philosopher's life and the relations between Stoicism and Christianity preface a modern translation of the journal.
