For emperor-philosopher Marcus Aurelius, the world is a theater with its masquerade of ephemerical actions, emotions, and roles to play. As a Stoic philosopher, he feels a deep contempt toward that world, but as an emperor, he must engage in it. Stoicism provides him an answer to that problem - a perfect moral intention, which - in the form of love to humankind - joins together his philosophical attitude and political action.
