Reading: an Emperor’s Guide to Protecting Your PeaceSaturday, October 08, 2016
How serendipitous that the first of our weekly Reading posts should fall on #BookshopDay?! This week we’re revisiting Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, albeit more of a private philosophical journal than a literary book. Written around 168-180 AD, the journal offers insight into the inner workings of the Roman Emperor’s mind. Why, you may wonder, in the year of our Lord 2016, should you be interested in reading the mind fluff of yet another canonical Dead White European Male?
