Thanks for joining the club!
Each month we pick a non-fiction book to educate and inspire, read it together, then meet in an online video chat to discuss what we've learned and share stories.
This month, to leave behind the utter hellscape of 2020, we're looking at Stoic Philosophy with one of the most famous and influential texts; "Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius.
Nearly two thousand years after it was written, Meditations remains profoundly relevant for anyone seeking to lead a meaningful life.
---- About this book ----
Read time: Approx 5 hours.
Written in Greek by the only Roman emperor who was also a philosopher, without any intention of publication, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius offer a remarkable series of challenging spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the emperor struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe. While the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation and encouragement, Marcus Aurelius also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: a timeless collection that has been consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and readers throughout the centuries.
There are many versions of this book around, you can even read or listen to it for free on youtube and other websites.
So grab your copy and get reading, I can't wait to see you all in the new year and hear your thoughts on this one!
