Meditations: (With Introduction, Appendix, Notes and Glossary) (Paperback)
The intellectual Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius composed his now famous Meditations as a personal diary while he struggled to understand himself and the world. It is one of the greatest works of philosophy, being uniquely accessible and wide ranging because he wrote not as emperor, but as a man among other men. The reflections cover most human concerns including the spectre of death, one's role in society, emotions, human rationality, virtue, and the gods. This edition is complete and unabridged and contains Introduction, Notes, Glossary and an Appendix containing correspondence with this tutor Fronto.
