In one of the world's most famous and influential books, Meditations, Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (AD 121–180) describes the Stoic precepts he used to cope with his life as a warrior and ruler of an empire. Aurelius offers his reflections on the search for inner peace and ethical certainty in a chaotic world, and gives modern readers a practical and inspirational guide to the challenges of everyday life. Presented here in a specially modernized version of the classic George Long translation, this beautiful hardcover edition makes a perfect gift for all seekers.
