Rory Stewart MP talks to Jules Evans about the classical cult of the hero, how it has become irrelevant in the modern world, and how he feels he has 'liberated' himself from its allure. This interview is part of Jules' book, Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations, about how people use ancient philosophy in modern life. You can see more videos connected to the book on my YouTube channel or at www.philosophyforlife.org
The Financial Times said the book is 'thought-provoking...shows philosophy is not just for stuffy classrooms'
Psychologies magazine said: 'Jules shows real warmth, insight and humour'.
