About This Book
Roman Emperor and Stoic Marcus Aurelius wrote volumes of journals full of personal notes, later translated and published in print for the world to know better this monumental figure, adored by philosophers both ancient and modern. Aurelius was the last of the "five good emperors," who governed the Roman world during a time known as "Pax Romana" or Roman peace. It was a time of prosperity, influence, and power, ending less than three centuries after his death with the fall of the empire. His meditations give us insightful and surprisingly modern thoughts from a man ahead of his time about stoic views about subjects from government and political duty, to sexuality and addiction, and so much more in-between.
