Acclaimed philosopher Theodore Zeldin takes us in search of what a full and flourishing life could be. Theodore Zeldin has engaged in a lifetime of philosophical study. He now argues that both the greatest problem and the greatest opportunity of the twenty-first century are to be found in our relationships with others. With examples from every corner of human experience – from work, to relationships, to business and politics – Zeldin reveals how our society is full of untapped potential for richer, more creative human interactions. It is only by truly relating to others that we can break out of our stultifying patterns of thought and behaviour, and glimpse the fullness of what it is possible to experience as a human being.
