Have you heard of Alain be Botton? He may be the nearest thing the world of philosophy has to a rock star. You can find a lot of videos of his talks on YouTube; they are hard to classify, they certainly aren’t “self-help videos” but I’ve found them both entertaining and helpful.
One I particularly like is called “Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person”. You can find it at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCS6t6NUAGQ
Beneath the flippancy. there’s a lot of wisdom in here, about perfectionism, lack of self-knowledge, anxiety and human relationships. And never thought I’d find myself laughing out loud at a philosopher quoting Kierkegaard, but at the end of this talk, I did.
If you liked this video, you might like to try “Alain de Botton on Love” as well. It’s at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ6K_f7oSdg
