The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius
Just enter your name and email in the form on this page to subscribe to my free email course on The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius.
You'll receive one email each week with a passage from The Meditations and my commentary underneath. We start with book two and cover book one last. There are over 500 passages so the whole course would take nearly ten years to complete, although you can unsubscribe just by clicking the link at the bottom of the emails. Thousands of people have already enrolled though and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, though. So I'm sure you'll enjoy reading these pieces of ancient Stoic wisdom each week.
The text is based on my plain English modernized version of George Long's classic translation. This version of The Meditations is now available to order in a deluxe hardback edition from Capstone Classics, with my special introductory essay.
