Wisdom of the ancients : life lessons from our distant past

Oliver, Neil, 1967-2020
Books
In all of recorded history this is the best time to be alive. We have increased life expectancy, better living conditions, the boundless potential of technology. Yet for all we have gained in the modern world, simple peace of mind is hard to find. In a time that is increasingly fraught with complexity and conflict, we are told that our wellbeing relies on remaining as present as possible. But what if the key to being present lies in the past? Neil Oliver takes us back in time, to grab hold of the ideas buried in forgotten cultures and early civilisations. From Laetoli footprints in Tanzania to Keralan rituals, stone circles and cave paintings, Oliver takes us on a global journey through antiquity.
