Summary

Written sometime between 120-180 AD by Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, Meditations has had a lasting literary power for centuries. Aurelius explores his personal exploration through Stoicism and how it impacted his time as a warrior and eventual emperor of the Roman Empire.

Though his tenure was riddled with challenge, Aurelius found solace in his practice of stoic philosophy. Meditations serve as the personal account of his reflections, philosophy, and commitment to personal and professional contentment.

Stoicism, in practice around Three AD, is traced back to ancient Greece at its founding by Zeno of Citium, and teaches that moral virtue is the highest "good" developed by knowledge. Relying on his understanding of stoicism, Aurelius was able to detach himself from worldly trouble and challenge and instead find inner peace in reason.
