DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The Meditations of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus: The Complete 12 Books. A New Rendering Based on the Foulis Translation of 1742 by George W. Chrystal. Meditations, literally "things to one's self", is a series of personal writings by Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 AD, recording his private notes to himself and ideas on Stoic philosophy. Marcus Aurelius wrote the 12 books of the Meditations in Koine Greek as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement. It is possible that large portions of the work were written at Sirmium, where he spent much time planning military campaigns from 170 to 180. Some of it was written while he was positioned at Aquincum on campaign in Pannonia, because internal notes tell us that the first book was written when he was campaigning against the Quadi on the river Granova and the second book was written at Carnuntum.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

From the team that brought you The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, a beautiful daily devotional of Stoic meditations—an instant Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestseller. Why have history's greatest minds—from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with today's top performers from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities—embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise. The Daily Stoic offers 366 days of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, or slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus, as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations, as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms. By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Meditations is a work of philosophical nonfiction written by Marcus Aurelius between 161 and 180 AD. A collection of Aurelius's private notes and musings on stoicism, it is unlikely that Aurelius ever intended it to be published. Later historians titled the collection Meditations because it best reflects the subject matter. A Roman emperor, Aurelius wrote the reflections during his reign. He is regarded as one of the most important Roman emperors, remembered for his sense of honor, his humility, and his seemingly unwavering passion for justice.Meditations consists of twelve books, each focusing on a different period in Aurelius's life. The books are not in chronological order, and they vary in length. It is likely that Aurelius wrote the content while he traveled on various military campaigns across Europe to preserve his Roman Empire. As such, the musings are short and succinct. Historians believe that Aurelius often referred to his own writing whenever he needed philosophical comfort.Aurelius begins by thanking everyone who has shaped his character. He gives thanks to his father for his modesty and to his grandfather for his morals. He thanks his mother for teaching him abstinence, piety, and humility. Thanks to her, he enjoys a simple life without obsessing over riches and titles. He says thanks to his great-grandfather for providing him with a good education.According to Aurelius, there is a need for cooperation and understanding. We spend too much time worrying about unimportant quarrels when we should be thanking the gods for giving us life in the first place. Aurelius reminds us that the gods only give us so much time, and it is up to us to use it wisely. Fighting is unproductive and goes against nature. Aurelius laments that we will never live long enough to truly understand ourselves. No amount of time on earth is enough to comprehend everything. We should not waste a single minute in our quest to better ourselves. We should live in the moment and be thankful for what we have. Every action has a purpose.Aurelius continues this theme, worrying that we spend too much time chasing happiness and fulfillment when it is all inside us. Riches, new houses, and luxury goods cannot satisfy us. We do not need sanctuaries or spiritual retreats, either. We must only look inside ourselves for peace and enlightenment. Aurelius examines the idea that it doesn't matter what anyone around us thinks. It only matters what we think of ourselves. What is most important is that we find satisfaction in ordinary life. There is nothing wrong with working hard, enjoying quiet family life, and possessing few luxuries. Aurelius connects humility with divine obedience.Aurelius looks closely at the nature of evil, wondering what it means to be "bad." Evil is short-lived, like all things. There is nothing unfamiliar about it, either. Just as history repeats itself, similar scenarios play out in homes behind closed doors all around us. We all know stories of, for example, violent spouses. Aurelius says we shouldn't worry about evil. If someone shows us cruelty, we should not let it ruin our day, our week, or longer. Life is too short to let someone else's toxic behavior destroy us. If we focus on ourselves, and if we choose to act with compassion and humility, then we are doing all we can.Focusing on justice, Aurelius despises unfairness of any kind. He believes that the gods designed us to help each other. If we treat another person unkindly, we are going against divine will. The only person we harm, then, is ourselves, because we are answerable to a higher power for our behavior.Considering our role in the universe, Aurelius believes in fate. He thinks that the gods plan out our lives and all we do is live out the script. We are all part of something much larger than ourselves, which is both comforting and humbling.

A Penguin Great Ideas edition of Stoic philosophy in wise and practical aphorisms that have inspired Bill Clinton, Ryan Holiday, Anna Kendrick and many more. Few ancient works have been as influential as the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and emperor of Rome (A.D. 161–180). A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus’s insights and advice—on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others—have made the Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. For anyone who struggles to reconcile the demands of leadership with a concern for personal integrity and spiritual well-being, the Meditations remains as relevant now as it was two thousand years ago.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Material Falsity and Error in Descartes’s Meditations approaches Descartes’s Meditations as an intellectual journey, wherein Descartes’s views develop and change as he makes new discoveries about self, God and matter. The first book to focus closely on Descartes’s notion of material falsity, it shows how Descartes’s account of material falsity – and correspondingly his account of crucial notions such as truth, falsehood and error – evolves according to the epistemic advances in the Meditations. It also offers important new insights on the crucial role of Descartes’s Third Meditation discussion of material falsity in advancing many subsequent arguments in the Meditations. This book is essential reading for those working on Descartes and early modern philosophy. It presents an independent reading on issues of perennial interest, such as Descartes’s views on error, truth and falsehood. It also makes important contributions to topics that have been the focus of much recent scholarship, such as Descartes’s ethics and his theodicy. Those working on the interface between medieval and modern philosophy will find the discussions on Descartes’s debt to predecessors like Suárez and Augustine invaluable.
