In an interplanetary system there is an empire formed of worlds inhabited by by alien beings with decidedly original characteristics: flying creatures that never settle, attracted by the depths of the sea.; a species that moves at ultra-high speed; creatures convinced they are the only one of their kind, alone in the world they inhabit; species whose senses are limited exclusively to touch; beings amazingly similar to Earth people; trees with very highly developed intelligence. Science fiction? Falco tells us that “these are stories with a specially built-in mechanism to help us dream, learning in this way to guide our dreams. We only need to read them before going to sleep”. And in any case, they remind us that the Earth is a just small planet on the very edge of a galaxy..

Nearly two thousand years after it was written, Meditations remains profoundly relevant for anyone seeking to lead a meaningful life.

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.

In Gregory Hays’s new translation—the first in thirty-five years—Marcus’s thoughts speak with a new immediacy. In fresh and unencumbered English, Hays vividly conveys the spareness and compression of the original Greek text. Never before have Marcus’s insights been so directly and powerfully presented.

With an Introduction that outlines Marcus’s life and career, the essentials of Stoic doctrine, the style and construction of the Meditations, and the work’s ongoing influence, this edition makes it possible to fully rediscover the thoughts of one of the most enlightened and intelligent leaders of any era.
