Time to time, TLmag has the pleasure to collaborate with Alain de Botton in its pages. Watch here this video where Alain de Botton introduces a new method of interpreting art : art as a form of therapy, providing powerful solutions to many of life’s dilemmas. Bluffy, isn’t it ? There is also a great book to read. Swiss-born philosopher Alain de Botton studied history at Cambridge University and is a prolific writer and broadcaster. He writes regularly for a number of newspapers and magazines, has presented numerous television programmes and established a production company – Seneca Productions – with director Neil Crombie. He currently lives in London and divides his time between his novels and other pursuits. A man and thinker to follow for sure!
