A Replacement for Religion

by The School of Life

A Replacement for Religion

The School of Life

Overview

For many people in the developed world, it has become increasingly difficult to believe in the divine, with simply too many rational and scientific arguments against supernatural forces. But as belief systems that are also highly interested in our emotional and ethical wellbeing, is it possible that religions might still have wisdom to impart to us?

A collective of psychologists, philosophers, and writers, The School of Life seeks to fill the holes left by modern education, producing content that helps people find fulfilling work, master relationships, achieve calm, and understand the world. This book both highlights the gaps in our lives left by the departure of religion, and suggests ways that other organizations might be able to function as adequate replacements.
