  • Marcus Aurelius

    Marcus Aurelius ruled the Roman empire from AD 161-180. He wrote the 12 books of the Meditations as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement. It is possible that large portions of the work were written at Sirmium, where he spent much time planning military campaigns from 170 to 180. Some of it was written while he was positioned at Aquincum on campaign in Pannonia, because internal notes tell us that the first book was written when he was campaigning against the Quadi on the river Granova and the second book was written at Carnuntum. It is unlikely that Marcus Aurelius ever intended the writings to be published and the work has no official title, so 'Meditations' is one of...read more

  • Marcus Aurelius

    Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations is the philosopher’s writing on his personal philosophies and private life. The book is made up of 12 books that Marcus Aurelius used to outline his ideas for self-improvement and guidance. While these writings were likely never meant to become a published work, Meditations has remained an important work of philosophical writing several centuries later as one of the earliest works of Stoic philosophy. This Stoicism reveals itself through the writing as Marcus Aurelius posits that individuals can separate themselves from sensory experiences to free themselves from the pain of the world. He presents a philosophy rooted in logic and rationality, and seeks to...read more
