Alain de Botton's The Consolations of Philosophy takes the
discipline of logic and the mind back to its roots. Drawing inspiration
from six of the finest minds in history - Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca,
Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche - he addresses lack of money, the
pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety and conformity. De Botton's book led
one critic to call philosophy 'the new rock and roll'.
