ALAIN DE BOTTON ON WAYS TO EDUCATE THE MODERN HUMAN SOUL

An inspiring talk, given at a recent conference in South Korea, by Alain de Botton who is a Swiss/British writer and philosopher (among many other talents), and is well know for discussing philosophy's relevance to everyday life.
When you have a spare moment, spend the 45 plus minutes and soak up his many insights. It is quite rewarding. He is an incredible speaker. And, the most relevant bits come later in the talk, especially in the Question and Answer period with the Korean MC and the audience. Worth watching till the end.
Alain talks about how society has done away with religion and its reminders of how to live in this world. And, he addresses the ways that technology can serve the deep human need of communication with each other.
