Twelve universal topics—including work, love, and family; time, creativity, and empathy—are explored in this book by illuminating the past and revealing the wisdom that people have been missing. There are many ways to try to improve life; one can turn to the wisdom of philosophers, the teachings of spiritual guides, or the latest experiments of psychologists. But looking to history for inspiration can be surprisingly powerful. In How Should We Live?, cultural thinker Roman Krznaric shares ideas and stories from history—each of which sheds invaluable light on decisions made every day. There is much to be learned from the ancient Greeks about the different varieties of love, for example, from the Renaissance about living with passion and facing the realities of death, from various indigenous cultures on bringing up our children, and from Japanese pilgrims on the art of travel. History is usually read for pleasure or for insight into current affairs, but this book is practical history—showing that history can teach the art of living, using the past to think about day-to-day life.
