Philosophy: A Guide To Happiness
This documentary series, as presented by Alain de Botton is an exposition into the way six thinkers have challenged us, with their ideaas about how to pursue happiness in life.
Socrates on Self-Confidence. The first part of this series discusses on why people are usually swayed by the opinion of a group or crowd, as they refuse to make their own stand. This section is a study on self-confidence and the way this shapes our views and convictions.
Epicurus on Happiness. This episode delves on Epicurus, the Greek philospher who was known as an “advocate of friends, freedom and though” and studies his own ideas about the path to happiness, in relation to his own personal struggles.
Seneca on Anger – for Roman philosopher Lucious Annaeus Seneca, anger is a manifestation of a philosophical problem and can be treated if we just dig deeper into our rationalizations. Some philosophers think Seneca’s ideas are so optimistic, resulting in unrealistic expectations.
Montaigne on Self-Esteem – covers the ideas of Michel de Montaigne, where he explains the reasons for our sadness and comes up with three main thoughts on sexual inadequecy, failure to live up to social norms, and intellectual inferiority. The chapter also offers some solutions.
Schopenhauer on Love – the fifth episode is a profile on Arthur Schopenhauer and his ideas on love. He says its the powerful force that drives us to live.
