520 1  "Written in Greek by the only Roman emperor who was also a
       philosopher, without any intention of publication, the 
       Meditations of Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180) offer a series
       of challenging spiritual reflections and exercises 
       developed as the emperor struggled to understand himself 
       and make sense of the universe. Ranging from doubt and 
       despair to conviction and exaltation, they cover such 
       diverse topics as the nature of moral virtue, human 
       rationality, divine providence and Marcus' own emotions. 
       But while the Meditations were composed to provide 
       personal consolation and encouragement, in developing his 
       beliefs Marcus Aurelius also created one of the greatest 
       of all works of philosophy: a timeless collection of 
       extended meditations and short aphorisms that has been 
       consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and readers 
       throughout the centuries." "Martin Hammond's new 
       translation fully expresses the intimacy and eloquence of 
       the original work, with detailed notes elucidating the 
       text. This edition also includes an introduction by Diskin
       Clay, exploring the nature and development of the 
       Meditations, a chronology, further reading and full 
       indexes."--Jacket.
