Alain de Botton on a kinder, gentler philosophy of success

Raleigh Addington

editor at Chartwell Speakers

Alain de Botton is the internationally acclaimed philosopher and bestselling author. In this clip, Alain examines our ideas of success and failure — and questions the assumptions underlying these two judgments. Is success always earned? Is failure? He makes an eloquent, witty case to move beyond snobbery to find true pleasure in our work.
