Publisher's Summary

Breakfast with Socrates explains what history’s greatest thinkers would say about everything we do each day, from heading to work, through going to the gym, making dinner and falling back to sleep.
We rarely think about how these everyday activities relate to wider ideas about the world, but Robert Rowland Smith illuminates the connections with wit, warmth and authority.
In this hour-by-hour commentary on a single day in our lives, you’ll find Lucretius explaining why it’s good to be unprepared and Emerson advising you on booking a holiday. You’ll get insight from Jung about your dreams, thoughts from Mill on bunking off, and the lowdown on sex from Aristophanes.
