Alain de Botton says that "Art is our new religion and museums are our new cathedrals" at the start of his talk about his book Art as Therapy.
Swiss-born writer, philosopher and founder of The School of Life, Alain de Botton believes art can help us with our most intimate and ordinary dilemmas: Why is my work not more satisfying? Why do other people seem to have a more glamorous life? How can I improve my relationships? Why is politics so depressing? In this 45-minute video he discusses his book and how art can have a therapeutic effect on our lives.
