HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. Our life is what our thoughts make it The extraordinary writings of Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180), the only Roman emperor to have also been a stoic philosopher, have for centuries been praised for their wisdom, insight and guidance by leaders and great thinkers alike. Never intended for publication, Meditations are the personal notes born from a man who studied his unique position of power as emperor while trying to uphold inner balance in the chaotic world around him. Boldly challenging many of our biggest questions, Aurelius wrestles with the divided self, considering the complexities of human nature, rationality and moral virtue, affirming its place as one of the most timeless, significant works of philosophy to date.

The translation was less elegant than its english counterpart found on Gutenberg.org. Nevertheless the introductory notes were insightful and interesting. It was also funny to see how Aurelius' philosophy is quite similar to buddhist philosophy and psychology. ( )

I've read "Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius sometime in the Autumn of 2007 after returning to Aberystwyth, Wales from my travels. Given that since June 2007 I was in a deep psychotic state, and just returned from a trans-siberian journey to Mongolia, I wanted to order my embattled mind. Voices, second sight, psychological torment. I was barely capable of reading and making sense of what I read back in the days, after psychoses erupted. Aurelian stoicism helped me cope with this hell, the amusing part is that I got a yellow piece of paper on which I wrote "stoicism applied" and stuck it to my forehead and then paraded through the streets of Aberystwyth raising some interest and mockery throughout. Years later, in 2016 I was suddenly reminded of this reading, I saw a Thyrsus and a Caduceus in the night-sky of Częstochowa, where I visited my then-girlfriend and mistress. The kitchen of that flat was flooded with divine light, and the spirit incarnated into me, as I felt divine pride, great celestial intellect and a commanding paternal tone in a voiceless, silent language. I silently thanked for the consolation that book brought to me in 2007. Then I approached my girl who was sitting next to her laptop and said: "He visited us", she asked: "Whom?", I said "The Emperor visited us". She said: "I'm busy, don't trouble me right now" and went on watching on her youtube videos. Aurelion Therion, the Beast of Solar God was a Pater Patrum in Saturnine rank, a Drakon, and a Pontifex, Julian the Theurgist was a soldier and a magician in his army on Marcomannian campaigns. "Memento Mori" - a phrase coined by him, I might add - "Invictii Genii". ( )

Didn't finish the whole thing for various reason but got the idea from the first few books. Mostly just repeating basic ideas about right living that are never specified, how people shouldn't complain about their lives because it's right that they're where they are. It was philosophy of acceptance but without any details that made it interesting and with nothing to say to someone who's in a crappy place. Just dull, repetitive and doesn't say anything interesting. ( )

A man once told me that philosophy is where good thinking and good writing goes to die. And for about 95% of all philosophy books I have read, he is correct. This however falls into that 5% that actually has something to contribute. Recommended. ( )

The translation doesn't shrink from anachronism (there's talk of atoms) and sometimes verges on the new age: "Stay centred on that", "Let it hit you". But it's sparky and slangily readable, and for those who know Marcus only as the Richard Harris character in Ridley Scott's Gladiator, this is a chance to become better acquainted.

As a critic once said, the Meditations are an "unassailable wintry kingdom". But in the desert of 2003, their icy blasts are refreshing and restorative. They tell you the worst. And having heard the worst, you feel less bad.

Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
Don't be ashamed to need help. Like a soldier storming a wall, you have a mission to accomplish. And if you've been wounded and you need a comrade to pull you up? So what?
Remember… that everything has always been the same, and keeps recurring, and it makes no difference, whether you see the same things recur in hundred years or two hundred, or in an infinite period.
The impediment to action advances action.

What stands in the way becomes the way.
Remind yourself, that your task is to be a good human being; remind yourself what nature demands of people. Then do it, without hesitation, and speak the truth as you see it. But with kindness. With humility. Without hypocrisy.
Don't let your imagination be crushed by life as a whole. Don't try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen. Stick with the situation at hand…
