The News: A User's Manual

The inside track is all over the place. We can't cease regularly checking it on our desktop monitors, yet what's this doing to our minds?

We are by no means quite taught tips to make experience of the torrent of reports we are facing each day, writes Alain de Botton (author of the best-selling The structure of Happiness), yet this has a huge effect on our feel of what concerns and of the way we must always lead our lives.

Why will we take pleasure in observing politicians being introduced down? Why are upheavals in far away lands frequently so boring?

Sample text

1 In early Greek thought, hope has a negative reputation. Solon, one of the Seven Sages, famously says that human beings are full of empty hopes. 2 Thucydides analyses loss and victory, and the decision-making that leads up to it. Here hope appears to indicate a lack of deliberation. Those who hope fail to come up with a plan. 3 In this chapter, I aim to show that Plato challenges this conception of hope. Hopes are not generally empty. They need not reflect a poor grasp of one’s situation. And they are not generally associated with failure.

16 This exchange between Socrates and Protarchus suggests that certain kinds of decisions are made, in part, by asking ourselves whether we could imagine a given path for ourselves. When we ask ourselves whether we can see ourselves in a scenario—Can you see yourself married to him? —we find out some of what we want. This does not mean that ‘planning’ as a whole consists of imagining scenarios, observing one’s pleasure/pain reactions. It does mean, however, that the Philebus advances a proposal: imagining scenarios helps us figure out some components of what appears to be a good life for us.

71 This is not entirely mistaken. g. the Homeric inner self. And how can these scholars exclude the possibility that the influence runs the other way, from cosmos to soul? Neither cosmos nor inner self is in this period simply observed, they are both to a large extent constructed. These questions cannot be answered without an understanding of the historical process of monetization, which influences the new conceptions of self and of cosmos in a way that explains their similarities. Money underlies and drives the circulation of goods by virtue of being a substance that—in order to unify the goods—embodies an abstraction.
