Abstract

Consolations - where do we normally go to for consolation when the world is against us? When we feel hurt, aggrieved? Alain Debotton. Self help books. Traditionally, we have turned to love, religion, family, philosophy, or nature for the counsel and comfort that we need to survive in the modern world. Although, they have also equally proven to be sites of suffering.
