Event description

Description

Blackwell's are delighted to be hosting a very special event at the Sheldonian Theatre with Alain de Botton on The School of Life: An Emotional Education.

We spend years in school learning facts and figures but the one thing we’re never taught is how to live a fulfilled life. That’s why we need The School of Life – a real organisation founded ten years ago by writer and philosopher Alain de Botton, an organisation which has one simple aim: to equip people with the tools to survive and thrive in the modern world. And the most important of these tools is emotional intelligence.

The School of Life is nothing short of a crash course in emotional maturity. With all the trademark wit and elegance of Alain de Botton’s other writings, and rooted in practical, achievable advice, it shows us a path to the better lives we all want and deserve.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF LIFE: The author of multiple international bestsellers including The Consolations of Philosophy and The Art of Travel, Alain de Botton founded The School of Life in 2008 with the aim of applying the principles of philosophy, psychology and culture to everyday life. Offering workshops, courses and a range of therapy services as well as a wide-ranging publishing programme with the aim of helping people to lead more fulfilling lives, it has since opened 10 branches worldwide and attracted 4.5 million YouTube subscribers. His Art as Therapy show was exhibited at the Rijksmuseum in the Netherlands, Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne in 2014. Alain is a bestselling author in 30 countries. He lives in London, where he runs The School of Life and Living Architecture.
