Marcus Aurelius
  • Written nearly two thousand years ago, Emperor Marcus Aurelius‘s Meditations remains a relevant and profound philosophical exploration of what it means to live a meaningful life.

    Never intended to be published, the diaries of Marcus Aurelius—philosopher and emperor of Rome (161–180 CE)—proves that humans have always been struggling to understand themselves. Filled with insight, wisdom, practical guidance, spiritual exercises, and ethical reflections, Aurelius’s entries range from single-line aphorisms to full essays. One man’s personal exploration of the universe has become a cultural and philosophical touchstone admired for centuries.

    This edition offers new life to the classic text, perfect for all readers whether you are encountering the Meditations for the first time or returning to an old favorite.
