Meditations - Marcus Aurelius


Roman Emperor that lived Philosophy on the front line. No academic trash, aphorisms that helped Marcus deal with life and will help the modern reader too. Originally a book of notes for his own consumption, Marcus could have never realised the gift he left for humanity.
 
Weighing in at a tidy 122 pages, with extensive notes and introduction exploring the biography of one of the most famous Emperors we have ever known, this is essential reading that cuts across cultures, time and thought.
