Price  1899.00
In the tradition of Logicomix, a riveting graphic novel on the life and stoic philosophy of Marcus Aurelius. Donald Robert's graphic novel Verissimus reimagines the life and philosophy of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. Based closely on historical sources and weaving them into a thrilling historical epic, Verissimus teaches readers a philosophy of life through illustration. It opens with Marcus' death and tells the story of his entire journey: his education, relationships, wars, plague, and civil war -- all leading up to his remarkable death. Verissimus illustrates key Stoic ideas, and focuses on developing love, empathy, and overcoming anger -- all emotions with which Marcus struggled. Robertson highlights several key relationships, and through them tells the story of the famous philosopher's intellectual journey and emotional transformation.
