5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolut lesenswert! 12. November 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Faszinierendste in diesem Buch ist, dass es von einem römischen Kaiser geschrieben wurde. Die Geschichte ist voll von Beispielen von Monarchen, die nur von der Macht und vom Luxus besessen waren. Wenige waren empfindsam und widmeten sich der Bildung des Geistes und der Spiritualität.

Wenn Mark Aurel tatsächlich so war, wie er geschrieben hat (und es sieht so aus, denn die Ehrlichkeit in seinen Schriften ist spürbar), dann muss er, obwohl Kaiser von Rom, ein äußerst sympathischer, zugänglicher Mensch gewesen sein, von dem man lernen wollte.

Für alle Leute, die sich für Philosophie/Spiritualität (die seriöse, nicht Esoterik) interessieren, ist dieses Buch ein Muss!

3.0 von 5 Sternen It's worth trying different translations 26. September 2013
Von davidhmorgan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I don't know who did the translation for this one but I found it very difficult to follow. This prompted me to look around and I found another translation by George Long (Thoughts of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus 1862). Even though it's not a recent translation, Long's version is often easier to understand. Compare the translations of the first paragraph for example:

This version:

Of my grandfather Verus I have learned to be gentle and meek, and to refrain from all anger and passion. From the fame and memory of him that begot me I have learned both shamefastness and manlike behaviour. Of my mother I have learned to be religious, and bountiful; and to forbear, not only to do, but to intend any evil; to content myself with a spare diet, and to fly all such excess as is incidental to great wealth. Of my great-grandfather, both to frequent public schools and auditories, and to get me good and able teachers at home; and that I ought not to think much, if upon such occasions, I were at excessive charges.

George Long's version:

From my grandfather Verus I learned good morals and the government of my temper. From the reputation and remembrance of my father, modesty and a manly character. From my mother, piety and beneficence, and abstinence, not only from evil deeds, but even from evil thoughts; and further, simplicity in my way of living, far removed from the habits of the rich. From my great-grandfather, not to have frequented public schools, and to have had good teachers at home, and to know that on such things a man should spend liberally.

Having said this however, it's still worth comparing both translations which are free on the Kindle.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Private journal of doing his best to live according to his mentors 8. Februar 2013
Von from Oregon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Very interesting, often very exemplary, journals of a well-educated man who tried to live up to his teachers, parents, and mentors in life. He writes of how he himself should live. It isn't so much a memoir, but a journal helping him to remember how he was taught, and how to apply that to his life at the moment. He leaned toward philosophy. Did his best to treat people well.

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard, accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.”

Before I get into details, I must say that reading Meditations was one of the hardest, but most rewarding experiences in my own personal growth. The book has done so much to ferment my prior beliefs and has helped a lot to broaden my mind and encourage me to be all that I can be.

It is very difficult in today’s world to believe in anything, whether it be divine beings, other people, or even ourselves. It is an epidemic that buries potential and love deep down and leaves anger and frustration to dictate life.

There is no reason to feel unhappy, unfulfilled, or unappreciated , and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius offers advice to anyone who is looking for self help, self love, and a rational way of directing life.

Before reading this book it is interesting to know the man that wrote it. Marcus Aurelius was the last of The Five Good Emperors of Ancient Rome. He took the title of Augustus after the death of his adopted father, Antoninus Pius, the adopted son of the late Emperor Hadrian.

However Marcus Aurelius had tried to pass on the emperorship, for he prefered a much more simple philosophic lifestyle. He accepted the honor with the sole demand that Lucius Verus, his adopted brother, would share the seat with him.

Sharing his seat of power is the one move that summarizes Marcus Aurelius’s entire life; the fear of power and the duty embedded in him through his interest in Stoicism, a philosophy that grounds itself on self-restraint, reason, and fate.

His work is a reflection of his life, and the words inscribed in Meditations are the product of his own thoughts and his own experiences. While reading this book good feelings will begin to surface through introspection, and in turn bad feelings will be expelled.

In my everyday life quotes from his book swim in my mind when I am met with difficult situations, and they enable me to make smarter more thought out and rational decisions. It is fascinating and rewarding each time I don’t simply act on impulse.

This book is not for entertainment, not for adventure, and it is definitely not a “light read.” It is a book that will help those who seek help, irritate those who don’t, and fascinate those who wish to learn and grow.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A hard read 9. März 2014
Von Jon Albert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
There is a lot of good life wisdom in this book. But you can tell that is a very old and very private text. You have to use a lot of thought in order to follow the meanings that are expressed. It is not for casual readers, no matter the praise it has gotten. Reading it was educational, but also a time-consuming struggle. Only read if you are truly and deeply interested.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A lot of extraneous fluff 1. Januar 2014
Von Angela - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have no complaints about the content of Aurelius, as I am reading this more so to learn about him and stoicism. However, the language is a pain to understand. Furthermore, in the beginning, I felt as though there was a lot of shameless religious plugs for other christian texts in the book without adequate historical context. Actually, the latter aspect is what bothers me the most about the book.
