Marcus Aurelius-Round base bust. Sculpture recreating a bust of Marcus Aurelius from an original statue from the 2nd century BC, displayed in the Museum of Ephesus, Turkey.

Marcus Aurelius (121 AD – 180 AD), the philosopher-emperor, one of the so-called “Five Good Emperors,” jointly ruled the Roman Empire with co-emperor Lucius Verus from 161 to 180 AD. He is also remembered as one of the most notable Stoic philosophers. His best-known work is the “Meditations,” a diary written during campaigns in which he reflected his thoughts, focused on the constant pursuit of virtue and wisdom and their implementation in daily life.

Marcus Aurelius faced numerous significant challenges during his reign, including military conflicts, epidemics, and internal crises. In the midst of difficulties, he was able to maintain the stability of the empire, despite threats both external and internal. Stoic philosophy helped him cope with the pressures of governance, following its principles that urge acceptance of adversities with serenity and cultivation of virtues such as generosity and justice, self-discipline, and moderation.

This philosopher-emperor continues to be admired today for his personal coherence and integrity, and his moral and ethical standards in a critical period of the Roman Empire. Marcus Aurelius has left a legacy as an example of a leader capable of exercising political power from a practical philosophical perspective, based on personal reflection and the implementation of virtues in a constant search for inner perfection.

“In your actions, do not delay. In your conversations, do not confuse. In your thoughts, do not become unfocused. In your soul, do not be passive, nor aggressive. And let your life not be just about business.” (Marcus Aurelius)
