philosopher and writer

About me

I’m a writer and teacher, who is interested in helping people seek the good life in modern societies. I’m particularly interested in ancient philosophies and wisdom traditions, and how individuals and communities are re-discovering them today. My first book, Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations, explored how people are rediscovering ancient Greek and Roman philosophies and how they inspired Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). It’s since been published in 19 countries and was a Times book of the year.

Today, I am policy director at the Centre for the History of Emotions at Queen Mary, University of London, where my research well-being, resilience and practical philosophy is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
