Philosophy in 40 Ideas: Lessons for Life

$14.99
Product info

To most of us, philosophy might seem like a rather inaccessible topic, better suited to the lecture hall than our everyday lives. However, at its core, this age-old subject has a lot to offer to people of all ages and from all walks of life. Philosophy in 40 Ideas: Lessons for Life is a beautifully-designed crash course in some of the greatest and most useful ideas found in Western and Eastern philosophy. This enlightening little book comes to us from The School of Life — a global organization that works to provide thought-provoking resources to help people find more fulfillment and meaning in life. In these pages, you’ll find poetic yet approachable entries that briefly outline key philosophical concepts, meditative practices and the teachings of some of humanity’s greatest thinkers — from Socrates, Buddha and Lao Tzu to Confucius, St. Augustine, Machiavelli and Nietzsche. While these ideas may be a few centuries or even millenniums old, they still have hugely helpful things to say on such things as work, love, friendship, happiness, self-knowledge and serenity. Just as informative as it is inspiring, this book is the perfect entry point for anyone looking to live a wiser and more purposeful life.
