Philosophy Guide to Happiness


We tend to accept that people in authority must be right. Its this assumption that Socrates wanted us to challenge by urging us to think logically about the nonsense they often come out with, rather than being struck dumb by their aura of importance and air of suave certainty. This six part series on philosophy is presented by popular British philosopher Alain de Botton, featuring six thinkers who have influenced history, and their ideas about the pursuit of the happy life. The philosophers are

Socrates on Self-Confidence

Epicurus on Happiness

Seneca on Anger

Seneca argues that
. Anger is more properly viewed as an enemy of a life based on reason. He says that:
".. ..The enemy, I repeat, must be stopped at the very frontier; for if he has passed it, and advanced within the city-gates, he will not respect any bounds set by his captives."


Montaigne on Self-Esteem


Schopenhauer on Love

Nietzsche on Hardship
