John Armstrong was until recently Philosopher in Residence at the Melbourne Business School and is Senior Advisor to the Vice-Chancellor of Melbourne University. He is the author of several internationally acclaimed books on art, aesthetics and philosophy, the latest of which, In Search of Civilization, was published in 2009.
The School of Life is a London-based enterprise that is dedicated to the most useful ideas relevant to the dilemmas of everyday life. We consider questions like: How can we fulfil our potential? Can work be inspiring? Why does community matter? Can relationships last a lifetime? We don't have all the answers, but we will direct you towards a variety of useful ideas from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts that are guaranteed to stimulate, provoke, nourish and console.
John Armstrong looks at our relationship with money, for most of us it’s too little, for a few it’s too much – but how much is enough, how do we relate to money, the spending and saving of it, can we do harm or good with our money, are we really grown-up with money matters?
