The Consolations of Philosophy
The Consolations of Philosophy is Alain de Botton's internationally bestselling guide to life and the inspiration for the TV series "Philsophy: A Guide to Happiness." Alain de Botton has set six of the finest minds in the history of philosophy to work on the problems of everyday life. Here then are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietsche on some of the things that bother us all: lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety; the fear of failure and the pressure to conform.
