The Stoics

by F. H. Sandbach

In the Inner Citadel, Hadot applies to Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations his characteristic interpretative approach: treating ancient philosophy as a “way of life” in particular one which provides its students with “spiritual exercises” to enable them to make progress towards wisdom and treating ancient philosophical texts with attention to the “forms of discourse” or constraints of genre, tradition, and audience that affected their production.

The Inner Citadel

by Pierre Hadot, Mark Aurel (Römisches Reich, Kaiser), Emperor of Rome Marcus Aurelius

“Of all people only those are at leisure who make time for philosophy, only they truly live. Not

satisfied to merely keep good watch over their own days, they annex every age to their own. All

the harvest of the past is added to their store. Only an ingrate would fail to see that these great

architects of venerable thoughts were born for us and have designed a way of life for us.”
