The Consolations of Philosophy is Alain de Bottons internationally bestselling guide to life. Alain de Botton, bestselling author of How Proust Can Change Your Life, 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 Nietzsche 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. Singlehandedly, de Botton has taken philosophy back to its simplest and most important purpose: helping us live our lives. (Independent). No doubt about it, philosophy is the new rock and roll and Alain de Botton is its Colonel Tom Parker...A pleasure to read. And good writing, like good philosophy, is always a consolation. (John Banville, Irish Times). Few discussions on the great philosophers can have been so entertaining ...an ingenious, imaginative book. (Humphrey Carpenter, Sunday Times). Witty, thoughtful, entertaining ...a stylish book, which manages to make philosophy both enjoyable and relevant. (Anthony Clare, Literary Review). Gentle, helpful and humane...De Bottons instinct is surely right: if we are to bring philosophy to life we should look again at those thinkers who have sought to be not clever or paradoxical, but simply wise.
