I first discovered philosophy as a teenager emerging from a dark place. There was a copy of Albert Camus's The Outsider lying around the house that I devoured and it left me hungry for more; it turns out we also had a copy of The Myth of Sisyphus and reading the first line of that book "There is only one really serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide. Deciding whether or not life is worth living is to answer the fundamental question in philosophy." I knew I was home at last. I always fancied that someday I would set up my own school of philosophy, a school that was dedicated to embodying the wisdom of philosophy and learning the art of the good life. The Living Philosophy is the beginning of that vision.
