Meditations
With prose that is "wonderfully sober and taut" (Wall Street Journal), this definitive translation of Marcus Aurelius''s Meditations offers inspiration for living today Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121-180 CE) was the sixteenth emperor of Rome--and the most powerful man in the world. Yet he was also an intensely private person, with a rich interior life and one of the wisest minds of his generation.

33 Human Science Masterpieces You Must Read Before You Die. Illustrated
We live in an era rife with cultural conflict. The 21st century is by no means free of wars, terrorism, riots, famine, nor epidemics. We may attempt to solve the challenges of our times by uniting the humanistic disciplines of philosophy, science, and technology. Our modern reality requires a fundamental understanding of the problems beleaguering our existence. Science and literature are key tools for gaining this insight. The wisdom accumulated throughout the centuries by scientists, philosophers, and writers is a solid foundation on which modern man can build the future. Our ability to learn from those who have come before is precisely what led Protagoras to declare that “Man is the measure of all things.” The 33 works in this book possess foundational importance and continue to influence our modern world.
