Product Description

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus was born to an upper-class Roman family in A.D. 121 and was later adopted by the future emperor Antoninus Pius, whom he succeeded in 161. His reign was marked by a successful campaign against Parthia, but was overshadowed in later years by plague, an abortive revolt in the eastern provinces, and the deaths of friends and family, including his co-emperor Lucius Verus. A student of philosophy from his earliest youth, he was especially influenced by the first-century Stoic thinker Epictetus. His later reputation rests on his Meditations, written during his later years and never meant for formal publication. He died in 180, while campaigning against the barbarian tribes on Rome's northern frontier.

Penned by the 16th century Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, Meditations enumerates how to live wisely and meaningfully in an unpredictable world. Brimming with timeless wisdom, this book has found its way into the the bookshelves of many notable statesmen, thinkers, and intellectuals.

WHEN LIFE BRINGS YOU PAIN AND SUFFERING, WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? TURN INWARDS.

Through Meditations, Aurelius urges the reader to embrace the principles of stoic philosophy-the key to living a happy and fulfilling life.

Learn how to:
1. Cultivate inner strength, resilience, and peace
2. Overcome self-doubt and fear
3. Develop self-discipline
... and much more.

Cerebral, contemplative, and profound, Meditations is among the greatest works of popular philosophy, and is truly life-changing.
