On Truth: A Box Set
This set is about Truth. It gathers the ideas of four very different thinkers, each with a unique and clear-eyed vision of the world.
Books in this box set:
- Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
Written as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement, the Meditations are a simply-written reflection of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius' Stoic worldview.
- The Unquiet Grave by Cyril Connolly
Aphorisms, quotes, musings, elegies and mental explorations fill this genre-defying work.
- Straw Dogs by John Gray
A treatise which challenges our idea of what it is to be human, asking us to imagine a world in which humans are not the central concern.
- Collected Maxims by La Rochefoucauld
La Rochefoucauld's collection of over 500 pithy maxims are often sharply witty. They tell us truths we may not wish to hear: 'If we had no faults, we would not take so much pleasure in noticing those of others.'
