IBNA- Exploring one of the big themes of life, ‘The Sorrows of Love’ by the School of Life Organization led by Swiss philosopher Alain de Botton has been translated into Persian and released.
According to IBNA correspondent, the long essay which aims to teach Romantic Realism has been translated into Persian by Mitra Naderi and published as a book by Sham’douni Publishing in Tehran.
Love has, quite unfairly, come to be associated with being happy. However, it is also one of the most reliable routes to misery. We tend to treat our sadness individually, as if it were unique and shameful. But, as this book explains, there are some solid reasons why love should be highly sorrowful at times.
The good news is that, by understanding our romantic troubles and griefs, seeing them in their proper context and appreciating their prevalence, we will cease to feel so alone and so cursed. ‘The Sorrows of Love’ is not a study in despair; it is a guide to a more consoling, humane and in its own way joyful perspective on the complexities of love.
The School of Life is a global organization helping people lead more fulfilled lives. It is a resource for helping us understand ourselves, for improving our relationships, our careers, and our social lives--as well as for helping us find calm and get more out of our leisure hours. They do this through films, workshops, books, and gifts--and through a warm and supportive community.
‘The Sorrows of Love’ in Persian has been published in 70 pages and 1000 copies.
