The modern world has brought us a range ofboth benefits and joys. Technology, medicinal advances and transport. But the downside is that it can feel as though modern times have plunged us ever deeper into materialism, despair and agitation. Seldom has the world felt more privileged and resource-rich yet also worried, blinkered, panicked and self-absorbed.
How to Survive the Modern World is the ultimate guide to navigating our unusual times and finding solace. It identifies a range of themes that present challenges to our mental wellbeing and it tackles our relationship to the news media, our ideas of love and sex, our assumptions about money and careers; our attitudes to animals and to the natural world around us. This book helps us to understand how we got to where we are, digging deeply into the history of ideas, while pointing us towards an individual and collective future. The book helps us to form a calmer, more authentic, resilient and sometimes more light-hearted relationship to the follies and obsessions of our age. If modern times are something of a disease, this is both the diagnostic and the soothing, hope-filled cure.
