Alain de Botton on Art as Therapy

Labels: ,

We often hear that art is meant to be very important; but we're seldom told exactly why.

Founder of The School of Life Alain de Botton believes art can help us with our most intimate and ordinary dilemmas: Why is my work not more satisfying? Why do other people seem to have a more glamorous life? How can I improve my relationships? Why is politics so depressing?

In this secular sunday sermon he introduces a new method of interpreting art: art as a form of therapy, providing powerful solutions to many of life's dilemmas.

This secular sermon took place at Logan Hall at The Institute of Education on Sunday 27 October 2013.
