By tackling 80 topics – friendship, love, death, happiness, the gift, the community, time, work, human connection, will… - Fusaro shows how philosophy can deal with all existential questions and any field in public life.
And he does so in an unusual way, by writing imaginary letters to Epicurus, analyzing side by side ancient and contemporary philosophy. The writing is concise, straightforward, effective, and never ostentatious. The language of a young author who enthusiastically took on the challenge of explaining sometimes complex concepts to the general public.
