We continue discussing Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, focusing on the relationship between the individual, rational being and the Commonwealth or "World City".   This week we will be approaching the topic from the lens of self-interest.   How does Marcus Aurelius' view of a Commonwealth of rational beings connect with notions of self-interest?  Further, how do Marcus Aurelius' exhortations to rid ourselves of anger and promote tolerance and patience connect with one's self-interest?  These are some of the questions on which we will focus for this week's episode of EthicsTalk.
