The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius are a classic of Stoic literature. They can be read without any prerequisite: it is not necessary to know the biography of the emperor-philosopher, the geopolitical situation of the Roman Empire in the second century or the history of Stoicism to enjoy the writing. So why should we read Pierre Hadot’s study, which is presented as an Introduction to Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations?
