Sinopsis: Marcus Aurelius (121–180 AD) is one of the great figures of antiquity who still speaks to us today, more than two thousand years after his death. His Meditations has been compared by John Stuart Mill to the Sermon on the Mount. A guide to how we should live, it remains one of the most widely read books from the classical world.
But Marcus Aurelius was much more than a philosopher. As emperor he stabilized the empire, issued numerous reform edicts, and defended the borders with success. His life itself represented the fulfillment of Plato?s famous dictum that mankind will prosper only when philosophers are rulers and rulers philosophers.
Frank McLynn?s Marcus Aurelius, based on all available original sources, is the definitive and most vivid biography to date of this monumental historical figure.
Biografía del autor: Frank McLynn is the author of many critically acclaimed biographies, including Richard & John and Napoleon. He has been a visiting professor at Strathclyde University and lives in England.
