"There is a need for someone to bring that joyful activity of mind we call philosophy to the wider reading public. And de Botton, the author of HOW PROUST CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE, writes with verve. Academic philosophy in the United States has virtually abandoned the attempt to speak to the culture at large, but philosophy professors are doing something of incredible importance: they are trying to get things right. That is the thread that connects them back to Socrates--even if they are not willing to follow him into the marketplace--and that is the thread that THE CONSOLATIONS OF PHILOSOPHY cuts....[L]et's face it, this isn't philosophy."de Botton, Alain is the author of 'Consolations of Philosophy', published 2001 under ISBN 9780679779179 and ISBN 0679779175.
