About the book
There is no rehearsal for life. You only get one go. Fortunately you can consult great thinkers for wise advice. Diogenes helps you to be your authentic self, Epicurus to avoid spending too much money, Kant to brake in time for a zebra crossing – but less well-known philosophers have something to offer as well. Lammert Kamphuis shows how thinkers both ancient and modern can assist you. From the moment you realize that life is not all roses, all kinds of questions flash through your mind: Where do I find myself? Who am I really? Who are these other people? Why are they all staring at me and what do they think of me? What is expected of me? Why am I here? And will someone tell me, please, when this is going to stop? Philosophy for an Inimitable Life offers comfort, enriches friendships, creates understanding for those who think differently and enables you to take more pleasure in your work. You’ll be amazed at how accessible this way of philosophizing is – and ready to try it for yourself.
