The School of Life

Overview

From Aesop's Fables to the philosophical ponderings of Plato, many of us have grown benefitted from the teachings of great minds. They have walked us through hardships, taught us about fair reasoning, and at times made us laugh. Do most of us genuinely grasp the importance of their wisdom, or have we turned them into mere tales and historical anecdotes?

Co-founded by British philosopher Alain De Botton, the School of Life creates thoughtful content about love, parenting, careers, and communication, helping us anchor ourselves in the present moment.

This offering showcases many examples of our world's greatest philosophers and shines a light on their importance, unearthing the crucial role philosophy plays in our daily lives – even though we may not realize it.
