Critically acclaimed Swiss-born, Britain-based philosopher, Alain de Botton, gives Time Out Seoul an in-depth look at The School of Life and its future presence in Seoul (opening in October) as run by journalist Mina Sohn.
Ever find yourself in an emotionally volatile relationship or feeling empty at your job? You may be able to talk about these things with your friends and family, but how do you learn to develop these emotional and social skills? Who do you look to for advice when you’re not a kid anymore? Swiss-born, Britain-based philosopher, Alain de Botton is now doing more than offering up advice in his books such as Essays on Love and The Architecture of Happiness—he’s starting up schools.
The Seoul branch of the School of Life will be offering courses on everything from “How to be confident” to “How to make love last” to “How to face death.” Faculty includes Mina Sohn, Byline senior curator Daniel Tudor and Joh Company CEO, Joh Su-yong.
