Alain de Botton on Love, Sex, Religion and Happiness

March 8, 2017

Modern day philosopher Alain de Botton has become world renowned for his ability to provide compelling real world answers to some of life’s biggest questions. For this episode of The Psychology Podcast, we cover the philosophy and science of a range of topics, including what it means to have a “normal” relationship, the origins of the desire for religion, the pervasive lack of systematic thinking about happiness, how the illusion of perfection creates problems, existential crises, how sex and pornography relate to well-being, and much more. We get a bit cheeky with a high brow discussion of the human condition, and hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it!
