Publisher's Summary

The wisdom of famous philosophers distilled into practical takeaways for modern listeners.

For centuries, philosophers have considered the “big questions” of human life, mulling over everything from ethics to the definition of reality. Their ideas and insights are powerful and innovative, but often inaccessible and far too academic for most listeners. 

In The Philosophy Cure: Lessons on Living from the Great Philosophers, scholar and expert on Cartesian philosophy, Laurence Devillairs has stripped away the convoluted language, translating the core ideas and wisdom of some of the most prominent philosophers into simple concepts for modern listeners. She skillfully reveals that far from being impractical or distantly academic, philosophy is, at its heart, a deeply useful discipline ultimately concerned with what it means to live a good and fulfilling life. 

Perfect for listeners who are intrigued with philosophy, but who are uninterested in listening to dense academic texts, The Philosophy Cure reveals the true wisdom of the best-known philosophers - from Socrates to Kant and Descartes.
