Dr Mark Vernon, philosopher, writer, broadcaster and journalist on 'Philosophy and the Art of Living.' If you had bumped into Socrates or Plato wandering the streets of ancient Athens 2,500 years ago, the founders of Western philosophy would probably have looked more like monks than professors. They tried to think clearly, but thinking, for them, was only the first step to living a better life and the search for enlightenment. Mark Vernon, editor of new series of books on The Art of Living, discusses what philosophy can offer us today as we seek not only to live but to live well. Might it offer an alternative to self-help and religion? What has philosophy to say about the good life, and how to find it?
