Philosophy For Life
BY JULES EVANS
Philosophy For Life And Other Dangerous Situation, is written by Jules Evans. Jules is a policy director at the center for the history of emotions, at Queen Mary, University of London. He is also co-organizer of the London philosophy club and is researching and promoting the growth of philosophy clubs around the world.
In this book, Jules Evans explains how his life was saved by Ancient Philosophy, and how we all can use it to become wiser, tough, and happier. Jules imagines a dream school, which includes 12 of the most colorful and the greatest thinkers the world has ever known.
Every single Ancient philosopher mention in this book teaches a technique we can use to transform ourselves and live better lives. This possible technique is illuminated by remarkable stories of real people who are using them today, from soldiers to magicians, from astronauts to anarchists, and from CBT phycologist to army.
Jules Evans has divided this book into five major sessions,
1. MORNING SESSION: THE WARRIORS OF VIRTUE
2. LUNCH: PHILOSOPHY BUFFET
