Eliot, Charles W. (editor): Harvard Classics Volume 2 V2.0 21 Mar 2014

The Harvard Classics Volume 2 (Plato, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius) Published 1909

Edited by Charles W Eliot LL D. (March 20, 1834 - August 22, 1926)

The Apology, Phaedo, and Crito by Plato (BC 428/427 or 424/423-348/347)
Plato was a philosopher in Classical Greece. He was also a mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. Along with his mentor, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle, Plato helped to lay the foundations of Western philosophy and science. The Apology contains an account of Socrates' defense of himself after he had been charged with being a corrupter of the youth and one who refuses to accept the popular beliefs concerning the gods of the city of Athens. The Phaedo is a narrative concerning the last hours in the life of Socrates. After an interval of years, the story is related to Echecrates by Phaedo, who was one of Socrates' beloved disciples. The Crito is an account of the conversation that takes place in the jail where Socrates is confined awaiting his execution. He is visited by Crito, an aged and trusted friend, who has come to the prison for the purpose of trying to persuade Socrates to avoid being put to death either by an escape from the prison where he is being held or by employing some other means.

The Golden Sayings by Epictetus (AD 55-135)
Epictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher. He was probably born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia (present day Pamukkale, Turkey), and lived in Rome until his exile to Nicopolis in northwestern Greece, where he lived for the rest of his life. The Golden Sayings are a compendium of aphorisms drawn from Discourses and Encheiridion.

The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180)
Marcus Aurelius was a Roman Emperor from 161 to 180. He ruled with Lucius Verus as co-emperor from 161 until Verus' death in 169 and was known as one of the 'Five Good Emperors'. Meditations is a series of personal writings by him setting forth his ideas on Stoic philosophy.
