Breakfast with Socrates

Robert Rowland Smith

Overview

Imagine waking up in the morning to find Sigmund Freud sitting beside your bed, explaining why you're struggling so much to get ready to leave for work on time. On the subway, Karl Marx dives into the meaningless of commuting. After work, Buddha gives you a lesson on the importance of detaching from material possessions and embracing a peaceful mindset while sharing a cup of tea with you.

Breakfast With Socrates takes you through a magical day, where the greatest minds in history join you on your mundane ventures to share their philosophies and get you to look at your daily life in a new light.
