Everything is clearer when you're in love


Alain de Botton is a philosopher translating the ancient wisdom of humanity's most visionary thinkers into ideas we can apply in our modern lives. In June, he'll appear live at the Sydney Opera House to discuss our most powerful emotion love.

Alain de Botton has become the pop culture figurehead for philosophy, in the same way Jamie Oliver champions healthy eating and Anthony Robbins promotes positive psychology. Alain's books, television documentaries and 'School of Life' courses use the power of philosophy, the science of thought, to provide thoughtful ideas to help answer to some of life's most difficult questions. What's the meaning of life? Which career should I choose? How do I cope with feelings of fear, guilt, anger, jealousy, etc?

His books, including Status Anxiety, The Art of Travel, The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work, The News: A User's Manual, and Religion for Atheists, tackle our most common modern dilemmas. He's founded the School of Life, with classrooms in Melbourne, to discuss these dilemmas in a collaborative setting.

In July, he'll visit Sydney to provide thoughts on the core questions of modern relationships and our search for love. What does it mean to love? To be loved? How to stay in love?
