A code of morals

A code of morals


The manuals of Epictetus and Marcus  Aurelius, though admirable in spirit and form, and the best works of their kind, were not complete moral codes when first published, and seem less complete now on account of the nume.ro.us and great industrial, social, political and religious changes of the last seventeen centuries. 

Standing on the shoulders of the eminent men who wrote those immortal books, making use of their labours, and striving to appropriate the knowledge of our time and to put me in harmony with its spirit, I have here tried to do for my age what they did for theirs.
