Other Editions of This Title:
The personal writings of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, who ruled from 161 to 180 AD, not only reflect on the philosophical idea of Stoicism, but also on this powerful man's day-to-day life and issues that still plague us all. Considered to be one of the most influential writings, Meditations is as relevant today as when it was originally published.
