The Consolations of Philosophy
Nuria Ranking: #559 in Self Help & Motivation
Alain de Botton’s The Consolations of Philosophy takes the discipline of logic and the mind back to its roots. Drawing inspiration from six of the finest minds in history – Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche – he addresses lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety and conformity.
De Botton’s book led one critic to call philosophy ‘the new rock and roll’
