Product description


"Singlehandedly, de Botton has taken philosophy back to its simplest and most important purpose: helping us live our lives." Author: The 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." Author: The Irish Times

"Few discussions on the great philosophers can have been so entertaining ... an ingenious, imaginative book." Author: The Sunday Times

"Witty, thoughtful, entertaining ... a stylish book, which manages to make philosophy both enjoyable and relevant." Author: Literary Review

"Gentle, helpful and humane ... De Botton's 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." Author: The Mail on Sunday

Book Description

The Consolations of Philosophy sets out to refute the notion that good philosophy must be irrelevant.
