Philosophy: a Guide to Happiness

Take a ride through Athens and visit the Acropolis. 
Consider if Socrates still has something to offer us: the idea that thinking logically about our lives might help us to be more certain of ourselves, more independent, less conformist, and less hamstrung about what other people think. It is the dream that philosophy might set us free.
(Text taken from the film.)
