Where do we still find comfort today? Philosophical Radio live. With Jean-Pierre Wils
In our therapy-loving age, positive emotions are highly valued. They are presumed to be the ones that help us achieve happiness, success, pleasure and joy in life. Positive emotions are often seen as the product of one's own efforts; they play an important role in the various concepts of self-optimisation. If we cannot achieve these on our own, coaches, therapists and life counsellors are standing by to help us transform our negative emotions into positive ones. But who can we turn to when helping doesn't help at all, when things have happened in life that can no longer be undone? All of us need comfort now and then; but where can we find it, and who dispenses it in way that it is not superficial?
