This is the first episode of a six part series by my favourite philosopher/writer, Alain de Botton. It's a fascinating look at the pursuit of a happy life as influenced by the ideas of six famous philosophers. This first one is Socrates on Self-Confidence – Philosophy: A Guide to Happiness. If you've followed my blog for a while, you've seen many a post on de Botton. Always great to see more of his work available online.
Watch it on Google video.
