Meditations by Marcus Aurelius( Book )

248 editions published between 1726 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stoicism is often portrayed as a cheerless, stiff-upper-lip philosophy of suffering and doom. Yet as experienced through the thoughtful and penetrating writings of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (121-180 CE), the Stoic approach to life is surprisingly rich, nuanced, clear-eyed and friendly." "With facing-page commentary that explains the texts for you, Russell McNeil, Ph.D., guides you through key passages from Aurelius's Meditations, comprised of the emperor's collected personal journal entries, to uncover the startlingly modern relevance his words have today. From devotion to family and duty to country, to a near-prophetic view of the natural world that aligns with modern physics, Aurelius's words speak as potently today as they did two millennia ago."--BOOK JACKET

From the Dust Jacket: In the writings of Epicurus, Epictetus, Lucretius and Marcus Aurelius, Greek and Roman philosophy comes into its fullest flowering. The advocates of the principles of virtue and pleasure are brought together into a single inexpensive volume for the first time; hitherto their works were obtainable only in separate, expensive editions. The four thinkers here represented have been brilliantly translated by Cyril Bailey, H.A.J. Munro, P.E. Matheson and George Long. In addition, Cleanthes' famous poem Hymn to Zeus and Matthew Arnold's Essay on Marcus Aurelius are included

30 editions published between 1930 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the many facets of local history attracting increasing attention at the moment are the old customs, peculiar to one village or town, which have lapsed since the Second World War. In the 1920s George Long perceived that these customs were in danger of dying out through lack of interest, and so he did his best to publicise them and ensure that they continued. This book was one of the results of his work-- a month by month calendar describing exactly what happened at scores of festivals"--Book jacket

The Enchiridion by Epictetus( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although he was born into slavery and endured a permanent physical disability, Epictetus (ca. 50-ca. 130 AD) maintained that all people are free to control their lives and to live in harmony with nature. We will always be happy, he argued, if we learn to desire that things should be exactly as they are. After attaining his freedom, Epictetus spent his entire career teaching philosophy and advising a daily regimen of self-examination. His pupil Arrianus later collected and published the master's lecture notes; the Enchiridion, or Manual, is a distillation of Epictetus' teachings and an instructional manual for a tranquil life. Full of practical advice, this work offers guidelines for those seeking contentment as well as for those who have already made some progress in that direction. Translated by George Long
