    Aims and Scope

    The two volumes of this work provide the first comprehensive interpretation of the philosophy of Marcus Aurelius. The central thesis is that a particular combination of form and content is characteristic of Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations. He wrote the earliest extant self-dialogue, whereby the composition of the mainly contemplative text can at the same time be a kind of Stoic philosophical practice.

    Volume 1 analyses general characteristics of form and their philosophical significance.

    Volume 2 analyses the themes, terms and arguments in analogy to the Stoic division of the philosophy.

    "Nach der Lektüre von Marcel van Ackerens magistraler Studie wird man sich dem eindruck schwer entziehen können, dass Marc Aurel nicht nur ein Philosoph war, sondern zudem einer, mit dessen Hilfe man viele Moden gegenwärtiger Philosophie getrost verschlafen kann."
    Andreas Urs Sommer in: Philosophische Rundschau 2/2012
