“We are all more intelligent than we are capable, and awareness of the insanity of love has never saved anyone from the disease.” ― Alain de Botton, On Love

What happens when the infatuation of early love fades and the realities of a lifetime together sets in? Bestselling author, philosopher and School of Life co-founder Alain De Botton will discuss this idea at his On Love talk at The Sydney Opera House.

Come listen to De Botton discuss his most recent novel The Course Of Love, the second fictional work by him more than twenty-years after his renowned Essays In Love. With his signature wit and everyday philosophical relevance, De Botton will explore how Romantic myths shape our modern depiction of love.

The event will sell out fast, so get in quick for one of the most insightful talks you’ll hear this year.

Alain De Botton will speak at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Talks and Ideas series. Tickets go on sale on February 26 at 9am.
