Add to Calendar 18-10-2013 18-10-2013 15 Alain De Botton on 'Art as Therapy' In his new book, Art as Therapy (Phaidon), written in collaboration with philosophical art historian John Armstrong, Alain de Botton introduces a new method of interpreting art, one that argues that certain great works offer clues on managing the tensions and confusions of everyday life. Using 150 examples of outstanding art, architecture, and design in chapters on love, nature, money, and politics, de Botton aims to guide us to a deeper understanding of art and ourselves. Art as Therapy is available for signing after the program. De Botton is the author of best-selling books including The Consolations of Philosophy, How Proust Can Change Your Life, Status Anxiety, and the recent Religion for Atheists. He founded the School of Life in London in 2008, which focuses on developing good ideas for everyday life in the form of courses, classes, and talks. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=146848 The Cooper Union - Great Hall true DD/MM/YYYY
