Beschreibung von Audible

Marcus Aurelius was the Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 and a major Stoic philosopher. His life and philosophy have endured over the centuries in his volume, The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius.
Originally written in Greek between 170 and 180, Marcus wrote this book for himself as a means of self-improvement. In its 12 sections, Marcus offers his thoughts on introspection, avoiding physical indulgences, and developing a “cosmic” perspective.
Walter Covell’s magisterial but relaxed performance suits the direct style of this influential and widely cherished work of philosophy.

Inhaltsangabe

Marcus Aurelius was Roman Emperor from 161 C.E. to his death in 180 C.E. He was destined to be a leader, having beeen born into a prominent family - one related by blood and marriage to rulers and bankers. During his era, Romans who inherited power and vast fortunes were expected to set an example. Marcus shouldered his responsibilities with a clear sense of honor. He was history's first ombudsman, and if his role as a legislator or conqueror was not great, he did set high standards for emulation. Written in the form of confessions, his meditations provide a window into his insights on duty, virtue, and humility. He was the last of the "Five Good Emperors", and is also considered one of the most important stoic philosophers.
The Meditations, written on campaign between 170 and 180 C.E., is still revered as a literary monument to a government of service and duty, and it has been praised for its "exquisite accent and its infinite tenderness". In fact, John Stuart Mill, in his Utility of Religion, compared The Meditations to the "Sermon on the Mount".
