Marcus Aurelius was a philosopher, a stoic who believed in translating thought into practical action. When he became Emperor of Rome in the second century A.D. he wanted all of Rome to embrace philosophical ethics. Instead, Rome came under attack from many sides, and Emperor Aurelius was forced to give his full attention to making war on his enemies.

We need your support! The University of Windsor administration has determined that it will close the Centre for Studies in Social Justice this July 1, 2013. This decision must be reversed as the Centre is a unique, vital and vibrant hub for social justice research, knowledge dissemination, exchange, and advocacy in Canada. You can learn more about the great work that has been done at the Centre by visiting their webpage:
