Socrates on Self-Confidence – Philosophy: A Guide to Happiness

This six part series on philosophy is presented by popular British philosopher Alain de Botton, featuring six thinkers who have influenced history, and their ideas about the pursuit of the happy life.

Episode 1: Socrates on Self-Confidence – Why do so many people go along with the crowd and fail to stand up for what they truly believe? Partly because they are too easily swayed by other people’s opinions and partly because they don’t know when to have confidence in their own.

[sprungtulips: Here is a fresh look on the teachings of Socrates, offering us a way to feel more confident as we go against the crowd and forge our own path. Be your own authority, don’t just be a follower]
