A Summary of the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius


This is a summary of Marcus Aurelius Meditations. Meditations is essentially a scrapbook of thoughts written over a 19-year period, it’s not ordered and it repeats itself frequently as ideas reoccurred to the author at different times. For this reason, it can be hard for a casual listner to extract the myriad messages contained within. This summary helps in that by interpreting Meditation and reducing it from around 50,000 words down to 4,400. While it has been interpreted the author has done his best not to embellish it.

I recommend starting with this summary before continuing with the full version of Meditations in order to get the bug picture of what it is all about.
