Samenvatting

In his engaging book, Jules Evans explains how ancient philosophy saved his life, and how we can all use it to become happier, wiser and more resilient. Jules imagines a dream school, which includes 12 of the greatest and most colourful thinkers the world has ever known. Each of these ancient philosophers teaches a technique we can use to transform ourselves and live better lives. These practical techniques are illustrated by the extraordinary stories of real people who are using them today - from marines to magicians, from astronauts to anarchists and from CBT psychologists to soldiers. Jules also explores how ancient philosophy is inspiring modern communities - Socratic cafes, Stoic armies, Platonic sects, Sceptic summer camps - and even whole nations in their quest for the good life.

  • Truly disappointing
    • does not deliver what it says
    • too shallow

    Geschreven bij Philosophy for Life

    Maybe i expected too much but the book was a real disappointment. If you are looking for philosophy better look somewhere else because there isn't much in the book. I could only describe it as a heavily US biased middle of the road self help book on a meta-level. The only worthful part of the book is the reference list.
