The Meditations is divided into 12 books that chronicle different periods of Marcus' life. Each book is not in chronological order and it was written for no one but himself. The style of writing that permeates the text is one that is simplified, straightforward, and perhaps reflecting Marcus' Stoic perspective on the text. Depending on the English translation, Marcus' style is not viewed as anything regal or belonging to royalty, but rather a man among other men, which allows the reader to relate to his wisdom. Rédigées dans un style simple et froid, les Pensées sont une suite d'épigrammes et de courtes réflexions portant sur le devoir, la mort et la conduite du sage face aux erreurs et à la méchanceté des Hommes. Marc Aurèle, lui-même philosophe stoïcien développe la tradition d'Épictète selon laquelle tout Homme a le profond devoir de ne pas s'inquiéter de ce qui ne dépend pas de lui, c'est-à-dire les biens matériels, les honneurs, l'opinion des gens, mais doit en contrepartie se rendre parfaitement maître de ses émotions, avis, opinions et jugements, la seule chose dont il possède une parfaite maîtrise.
