The Shrink and the Sage: A Guide to Living

by Julian Baggini and Antonia Macaro
£9.99   paperback  Icon Books Ltd (2012)

The Shrink and the Sage: A Guide to Living by Julian Baggini and Antonia Macaro Should we be happy pessimists?
 
How much should we care about our appearance?
 
What should you do before you die?
 
Philosopher Julian Baggini and therapist Antonia Macaro present their unique brand of self-help – with a distinctly cerebral edge.
 
From what Aristotle can teach us about practical wisdom to how the work of psychologists such as Daniel Kahneman can improve our decision-making, they offer eminently practical advice to many common personal dilemmas.
 
What does philosophical logic have to say about sticking to resolutions? How important is work? Could Danish existentialist Søren Kierkegaard lead you to a more satisfying life?
 
Upbeat, enjoyable and thought-provoking, this brilliantly readable intellectual agony uncle and aunt team combine the insights of philosophy and psychology to begin to piece together a a guide to the good life and how to live it.
