    Synopsis
    Confucius emphasized morality, 'the proprieties' - correctness of social relationships - as well as justice and sincerity. A major goal of his conversations was to get his disciples to think deeply for themselves by relentless study of the world. Confucius' values gained prominence in China over all other doctrines and, in time, his thoughts were developed into a system of philosophy known as 'Confucianism.' It is difficult for people outside China to realize just how great an influence Confucius has had on Chinese thought. To this day, even in Communist China, there are temples to Confucius in almost every city and every year spectacular memorial ceremonies are held honoring Confucius and his philosophy.

    Walter Covell

    Synopsis
    Marcus Aurelius was Roman Emperor from 161 C.E. to his death in 180 C.E. He was destined to be a leader, having been born into a prominent family—one related by blood and marriage to rulers and bankers.During his era, Romans who inherited power and vast fortunes were expected to set an example. Marcus shouldered his responsibilities with a clear sense of honor. He was history's first ombudsman, and if his role as a legislator or conqueror was not great, he did set high standards for emulation.Written in the form of confessions, his meditations provide a window into his insights on duty, virtue, and humility. He was the last of the 'Five Good Emperors,' and is also considered one of the most important stoic philosophers.The Meditations, written on campaign between 170 and 180 C.E., are still revered as a literary monument to a government of service and duty, and have been praised for their 'exquisite accent and…infinite tenderness.' In fact, John Stuart Mill, in his Utility of Religion, compared the Meditations to the 'Sermon on the Mount.'
