HOW TO SURVIVE THE MODERN WORLD | BOOK | English Edition | The School of Life
VAT included. Shipping calculated at checkout
How to Survive the Modern World is the ultimate guide by The School of Life to navigating our unusual times. It identifies a range of themes that present acute challenges to our mental wellbeing.
The book tackles our relationship to the news media, our ideas of love and sex, our assumptions about money and our careers, our attitudes to animals and the natural world, our admiration for science and technology, our belief in individualism and secularism – and our suspicion of quiet and solitude. In all cases, the book helps us to understand how we got to where we are, digging deeply and fascinatingly into the history of ideas, while pointing us towards a saner individual and collective future.
The emphasis isn’t just on understanding modern times but also on knowing how we can best relate to the difficulties these present. The book helps us to form a calmer, more authentic, more resilient and sometimes more light-hearted relationship to the follies and obsessions of our age. If modern times are (in part) something of a disease, this is both the diagnostic and the soothing, hope-filled cure.
