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

"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

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius( Book )

16 editions published between 1891 and 2010 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in the form of confessions, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius express with great beauty and tenderness the essence of Stoic philosophy. The Stoic, whose life is one of passive, meditative searching for God's truth in nature, feels that God is, ever present, and thus looks on everything and all men as his equals. Marcus Aurelius states that the Stoic lives as if upon a mountain, superior to vanities and expecting very little from his fellow men, but helping and sympathizing with them. We are made for cooperation, like the hands, like the feet. The Stoic does not rail at misfortune, for that would be to criticize God's handiwork. Nor does he seek gratification of ambition, but rather performance of duty, and his end is not happiness, but virtuous tranquility. The Enchiridion (Manual) of Epictetus, included in this volume, exercised a profound influence on the thought of Marcus Aurelius"--Back cover

Handbook of Epictetus by Epictetus( Book )

in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although he was born into slavery and endured a permanent physical disability, Epictetus (ca. 50ca. 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

Speeches by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

10 editions published between 1851 and 1881 in Latin and English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CICEREO (Marcus Tullius, 3rd Jan. 106-7th Dec. 43 B.C.), Roman lawyer, orator and politician (and even philosopher), of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 Speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 survive (a few of them incompletely). In A.D. 1345 Petrarch discovered copies of a collection of more than 900 Letters of which more than 800 were written by Cicero and nearly 100 by others to him. These afford a revelation of the man and all the more striking because they were not written for publication. Six Rhetorical works survive and another in fragments. Philosophical works include seven extant major compositions and a number of others; and some lost. There is also poetry, some original, some as translations from the Greek
