• Culture provides a sense of consolation.
This class connects a range of cultural masterpieces with our own dilemmas and pains around love, work and society, and invites us to see culture as a resource with which to address the complex agonies of being human.
It provides us with enduring keys to unlocking culture as a way of transforming our lives.
This class is in a sequence with How to Enjoy Life and The Meaning of Life which together cover The School of Life's ideas on culture.
Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.
These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture, conversation and group activity.
