The School of Life
The School of Life - Smart ideas for a good life The School of Life was founded 8 years ago in London by philosopher and bestselling author Alain de Botton. His idea was to open a school where you could learn what you don't learn in schools and universities: to lead a good and fulfilling life. The School of Life uses helpful ideas from 3000 years of cultural history - from philosophy, psychology, psychoanalysis, literature and art - free of any ideology or dogma. In addition to London, The School of Life now has 12 locations in Amsterdam, Paris, Melbourne and Sao Paulo, among others. The school in Berlin opened in April 2016 and is run by Thomas Biller, who studied German literature and philosophy and worked for many years as a television producer. With its books, games and other tools, The School of Life helps us cultivate relationships, build careers, understand ourselves, find peace, cultivate friendships and learn the best from people's culture.
