A Philosophy of Simple Living

Jerome Brillaud

Today, simple living is a rallying cry for anti-consumerists, environmentalists and anyone concerned with humanity’s effect on the planet. But what is so revolutionary about a simple life? Why are we so fascinated with simplicity today? Why do we still sometimes resist simplifying our lives?

A Philosophy of Simple Living brings together an array of people, practices and movements, from Henry David Thoreau to Steve Jobs, and from Cynics and Quakers to voluntary simplicity and degrowth. Written in elegant, spare prose, this book will inspire all who wish to simplify their lives and convince many that a good life is a simple life.

‘Thoughtful and beautifully written…A must-read in our era of noise and distraction.’ - Phillip John Usher, New York University

‘A powerfully insightful work that deserves wide attention.’ - Brendan Gleeson, author of The Urban Condition
