How to Overcome Your Childhood

The School of Life

Overview

While the idea of dissecting your formative years in therapy is almost cliché today, it's actually relatively new. It was not until the late 19th century that Sigmund Freud mainstreamed the idea that engaging with one's childhood could hold the key to being a less anxious adult. But can examining our childhood really help us live better lives now?

The School of Life is an educational company co-founded by philosopher Alain de Botton to harness philosophical wisdom for everyday life. This book examines how getting in touch with our past can help us be more fulfilled in the present, and approach our future with more clarity.
