The Three-Minute Philosopher: Inspiration for Modern Life

Fabrice Midal

Write Review

Rated 0

Self-help & personal development

Bite-sized popular philosophy.

Philosophy takes us by surprise. It challenges us, awakens us and opens our minds.

Philosophical thinking is the antithesis of the rampant dogmatism that dominates so much public discussion, of the vehemently-expressed opinions of those who think they know everything and who insist you agree with them.

Philosophy does not tell us to be "wise", or to be a perfect being, but instead to nurture our own humanity. Self-proclaimed experts tell us to listen to and obey their injunctions; philosophers encourage us to think for ourselves.

Let Fabrice Midal teach you the power of trusting in your own thoughts, as he guides us through the inspirational ideas of forty writers, artists, thinkers and seers from Baudelaire to Wittgenstein, Emily Dickinson to Toni Morrison, Pablo Picasso to James Baldwin.

Philosophy addresses what makes us human and helps us navigate everyday life, from dealing with that annoying colleague at work, to the panic of realizing that your fridge is empty when guests arrive out of the blue.

When our lives feel increasingly abstract, philosophy is a concrete tool to restore our humanity.
