Some ancient works have been as influential as the Meditations of Marc-Aurelius, philosopher and emperor of Rome (AD161-180)A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance and a deep understanding of human behavior, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever writtenMarcus ideas and advice-everything from life in the world to dealing with adversity and interacting with others, have realized the Meditations compulsory reading for statesmen and similar philosophers, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the simple intimacy of his styleFor someone who has difficulty reconciling the demands of leadership with a concern for personal integrity and spiritual well-being, the Meditations remain as relevant today as they were two thousand years ago.In Gregoire Hays’ new translation-the first in thirty-five years–Marcus thought of speaking with new acuityFresh and not English, Hays strongly transmits the stripping and compression of the original Greek textNever before had Marcus ideas been so directly and powerfully presentedWith an Introduction which describes Marcus’s life and career, the essence of Stoic doctrine, the style and construction of the Meditations, and the work being influenced, this edition allows one to fully rediscover the thoughts of one of the most enlightened and intelligent leaders of all eras.
