Meditations Audiobook

Meditations

Author: Marcus Aurelius Narrator: Ricky Johson Release Date: June 2020

The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts. From expressing his gratitude to the ones from whom he had learned important qualities and lessons in life to detailing his thoughts and reflections over a wide range of subjects including our mind and thoughts, life and death, goodness, self-judgement, virtuousness, nature, leadership, and human rationality, Meditations gives an insight into the inner life and philosophy of the last of the ‘Five Good Emperors,’ Marcus Aurelius. Marcus Aurelius wrote the 12 books of the Meditations in Koine Greek as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement. It is possible that large portions of the work were written at Sirmium, where he spent much time planning military campaigns from 170 to 180. Some of it was written while he was positioned at Aquincum on campaign in Pannonia, because internal notes tell us that the first book was written when he was campaigning against the Quadi on the river Granova (modern-day Hron) and the second book was written at Carnuntum. It is unlikely that Marcus Aurelius ever intended the writings to be published and the work has no official title, so Meditations is one of several titles commonly assigned to the collection. These writings take the form of quotations varying in length from one sentence to long paragraphs.

The Ultimate Stoicism Collection: Meditations, On the Shortness of Life, The Enchiridion of Epictetu Audiobook

The Ultimate Stoicism Collection: Meditations, On the Shortness of Life, The Enchiridion of Epictetu

Author: Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca Narrator: Various Release Date: May 2020

This audio book contains three of the most notable works on Stoic philosophy: The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, Seneca's On the Shortness of Life, and The Enchiridion of Epictetus. Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and Epictetus are known as the founding fathers of Stoic philosophy. All three of these men believed that the path to eudaimonia (happiness, or blessedness) for humans is found in accepting the moment as it presents itself, by not allowing oneself to be controlled by the desire for pleasure or fear of pain, by using one's mind to understand the world and to do one's part in nature's plan, and by working together and treating others fairly and justly. They argued that virtue is the only good. Download this audio book now and listen to the works of the greatest Stoic philosophers that ever lived!

The Meditations Audiobook

The Meditations

Author: Marcus Aurelius Narrator: Seth Thompson Release Date: May 2020

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations is the philosopher’s writing on his personal philosophies and private life. The book is made up of 12 books that Marcus Aurelius used to outline his ideas for self-improvement and guidance. While these writings were likely never meant to become a published work, Meditations has remained an important work of philosophical writing several centuries later as one of the earliest works of Stoic philosophy. This Stoicism reveals itself through the writing as Marcus Aurelius posits that individuals can separate themselves from sensory experiences to free themselves from the pain of the world. He presents a philosophy rooted in logic and rationality, and seeks to gain control of what he can while letting go the things he cannot control. Centuries after Meditations was written, philosophers began studying the work and using it as a means of discourse. This work is acclaimed for its writing style and Marcus Aurelius’ ability to write what he believed plainly. This work is an essential philosophical piece that has stood the test of time.

Meditations: Penguin Classics Audiobook

Meditations: Penguin Classics

Author: Marcus Aurelius Narrator: Richard Armitage Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Richard Armitage, star of Peter Jackson'sThe Hobbit trilogy and also known for his roles in Ocean's 8 and Spooks. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Diskin Clay. Originally written only for his personal consumption, Marcus Aurelius's Meditations has become a key text in the understanding of Roman Stoic philosophy. This Penguin Classics edition is translated with notes by Martin Hammond and an introduction by Diskin Clay. Written in Greek by an intellectual Roman emperor without any intention of publication, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius offer a wide range of fascinating spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the leader struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe. Spanning from doubt and despair to conviction and exaltation, they cover such diverse topics as the question of virtue, human rationality, the nature of the gods and Aurelius's own emotions. But while the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation, in developing his beliefs Marcus also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: a series of wise and practical aphorisms that have been consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and ordinary readers for almost two thousand years. Martin Hammond's new translation fully expresses the intimacy and eloquence of the original work, with detailed notes elucidating the text. This edition also includes an introduction by Diskin Clay, exploring the nature and development of the Meditations, a chronology, further reading and full indexes. Marcus Aelius Aurelius Antoninus (121-80) was adopted by the emperor Antoninus Pius and succeeded him in 161, (as joint emperor with adoptive brother Lucius Verus). He ruled alone from 169, and spent much of his reign in putting down various rebellions, and was a persecutor of Christians. His fame rest, above all, on his Meditations, a series of reflections, strongly influenced by Epictetus, which represent a Stoic outlook on life. He was succeeded by his natural son, thus ending the period of the adoptive emperors.

Written in Greek, without any intention of publication, by the only Roman emperor who was also a philosopher, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180) offer a remarkable series of challenging spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the emperor struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe.
