Most of us probably give little thought to Greek philosophy in our everyday lives. Jules Evans wants to change that by demonstrating just how useful the ideas of the Greeks can be in helping us overcome adversity in our professional and personal lives. Inspired by his own experience of philosophy helping him through a life crisis, he developed ‘Philosophy for Life’, a model of wellbeing education that balances evidence-based techniques with ethical discussion, approaching questions of the meaning of life in a pluralistic way. From times of emotional stress to the new ‘politics of wellbeing’, he explains how to bring philosophy into our everyday lives, in the hope we might all get closer to the good life.
