Description

The unabridged version of this definitive work is now available in a highly designed paperback with flaps with a new introduction by Pierre Baumann. Part of the Knickerbocker Classics series, a modern design makes this timeless book a perfect travel companion.

The personal writings of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, who ruled from 161 to 180 AD, not only reflect on the philosophical idea of Stoicism, but also on this powerful man's day-to-day life and issues that still plague us all. Considered to be one of the most influential writings, Meditations is as relevant today as when it was originally published. 
 

The author

Marcus Aurelius was a Roman emperor and stoic philosopher (121–180 AD). His intellectual interest was Stoicism, a philosophy that emphasized fate, reason, and self-restraint.

Pierre Baumann is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Puerto Rico-Río Piedras.
