Plato's Podcasts : The Ancients' Guide to Modern Living Paperback


Do you ever get the feeling that something went wrong?

What with credit crunches, wars, congestion charges, and unemployment, it is natural to hark back to less complicated times.

In this witty and inspiring book, Mark Vernon does just that.

However, we are not talking about the 1980s - try 400BC!

Filled with timeless insight into life, relationships, work and partying, Plato's Podcasts takes a sideways glance at modern living and presents the would-be thoughts of Ancient Philosophers on various topics central to our 21st century existence.

From Plato on podcasts to Epicurus on bottled water, this is a funny but profound take on what life means today (and two thousand years ago).
