Alain de Botton on Art as Therapy

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.
