The Consolations of Philosophy. Alain de Botton Download Î 5 Tton's instinct is surely right if we are to bring philosophy to life we should look again at those thinkers who have sought to be not clever or paradoxical but simply wise' Roger Scruton Mail on SundayAlain de Botton's bestselling books include The News Religion for Atheists How Proust Can Change Your Life The Art of Travel The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work and The Architecture of Happiness He lives in London and founded The School of Life wwwtheschooloflifecom and Living Architecture wwwliving architecturecouk Forinformation consult wwwalaindebottoncom. The title of de Botton s book is a reference to an earlier book of the same title by Boethius a Roman senator who turned to philosophy as consolation for his feelings whilst imprisonedAnicius Manlius Severinus Bo thius commonly called Boethius was a Roman senator consul magister officiorum and philosopher of the early 6th century He wrote The Consolation of Philosophy in AD 523 during a one year imprisonment he served while awaiting trial and eventual execution for the alleged crime of treason under the OstrogothicKing Theodoric the Great Boethius was at the very heights of power in Rome and was brought down by treachery This experience inspired the book which reflects on how evil can exist in a world governed by God and how happiness is still attainable amidst fickle fortune while also considering the nature of happiness and God It has been described as by far the most interesting example of prison literature the world has ever seenDe Botton s book is organised into 6 sections as shown below each with a guiding philosopher and their views uoted extensively in terms of advice in overcoming the specific demise or problemUnpopularity SocratesNot having enough money EpicurusFrustration SenecaInadeuacy MontaigneA broken heart SchopenhauerDifficulties NietzscheThe section I enjoyed most was frustration with Seneca as my guide to overcome my own personal frustrations Of course Seneca hadn t anticipated the problems of an ordinary bloke utterly frustrated with all things concerning Brexit but despite what 48% of the British population would say I DO have enough intelligence to apply Seneca s logic to the current situationLet s start with Seneca s definition of frustrationThough the terrain of frustration may be vast from a stubbed toe to an untimely death at the heart of every frustration lies a basic structure the collision of a wish with an unyielding realitySeneca s collisions are frustrations arising from Anger Shock Injustice Anxiety and Mockery uite a list that seems spot on regarding modern day politics I don t wantto give too much away about overcoming said frustrations but this is an excellentbook to understand a range of philosophers interpreting a range of human problems in an ancient and modern setting But to round off with SenecaWe may be powerless to alter certain events but we remain free to choose ourattitude towards them and it is in our spontaneous acceptance of necessity that wefind our distinctive freedom It seems to me however that the words free and freedom and their practical meaning are being rapidly eroded across the western world and that will surely lead to an extreme version of frustration
