Philosophy: A Guide to Happiness

A Guide to Happiness explores how philosophy can help people lead happier, more fulfilling lives. The six-part series illuminates how philosophies from the past still have meaning and impact today. Charismatic writer and television personality Alain de Botton talks to people on the street about the ideas of great philosophers, including Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche. De Botton travels to Athens, Rome, Cambridge, Frankfurt and other European cities to visit the ancient ruins, beautiful castles, crooked streets and narrow alleys, to see where each of these great philosophers lived.
