    Joined 7 years ago | 2010-05-18...

    The School of Life is both a You Tube channel and a real-life school (for adults) in 10 locations around the world devoted to emotional education. We're fascinated by the sort of questions we're never taught enough about at regular school or college: How can relationships go well? What is meaningful work? How can love last? How can one find calm? What's gone wrong (and right) with capitalism? We love the humanities, especially philosophy, psychotherapy, literature and art - always going to them in search of ideas that are thought-provoking, useful and consoling. We're about wisdom, emotional intelligence and self-understanding. We have 10 physical campuses around the world, a shop online and a blog, The Book of Life.
