You might take one look at Marcus Aurelius's Meditations and feel your fight-or-flight response kick in. Thx anywayI think those web site was alot of help 9 me and my friend 9 our report! He learned from an early age to love rough living and to refuse to indulge in anything for pleasure or comfort. I got most of my research done. Basically, he was just writing for himself. Why wouldn't you want to read this guy's book?
I coudnt find much literature (which i needed) but it s good enough. Marcus was no posh emperor. Marcus Aurelius isn't your average Roman emperor.
Um i wish if there isn't any trouble, can you put in what the romans improved on in their inventions? Let's take a look at the various types of governments and governance systems that have been adopted by mankind throughout the world, from the ancient city-states of Greece to the nations of the 76st century. !
As a boy, Marcus was trained in, a philosophy that encourages self-restraint, harsh reality-checking, and a strong sense of civic responsibility. Finished my research, but i needed a little more literature and less links. I almost got all my research done =( but i needed more on literature.
Caligula and nero essay. Great job! In his writings, he warns himself not to give in to the temptations of his privilege, because doing so might turn him into something he doesn't recognize.
By the way, Marcus is totally the emperor in Gladiator played by Richard Harris. Even his Meditations were never meant to bring lasting fame or gain him any followers. It's only after his death that his diaries became known and read all over the world.
It helps a lot. But don't get too judgy right off the bat. He came to power through a series of family tragedies that left him without a father and two other emperors ( and ) without heirs. Wow! Very nice.
