Philosophy - Marcus Aurelius' Meditations

Thursday 2.00 - 4.00

This course is based on reading Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations. Marcus Aurelius was a Roman Emperor (AD121-180) and his Meditations provide an introduction to ancient philosophy, to the system of Stoicism and to some of the fundamentals of Christianity.
Ever since they were written, for many they have been an inspiration and a guide to life.
The course is suitable for anyone who enjoys thinking about and discussing abstract issues and no knowledge of philosophy is presupposed. The recommended edition for the course is Meditations translated by Gregory Hays (as pictured left). Other editions are not recommended as we will be reading sections of the book together.
