Meditations: (With Introduction, Appendix, Notes and Glossary) (Hardcover)
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 as 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, the emotions, human rationality, virtue, and the gods. This edition is complete and unabridged and contains Introduction, Notes, Appendix containing correspondence with his tutor Fronto, and a Glossary.
