Essential texts on truth from four very different thinkers, each with a unique and clear-eyed vision of the world.


The School of Life believes that literature has the power to transform lives. Each title in their Box Set collection contains essential classic and modern texts on a given theme. They're designed to be lifetime companions and guides. 

The Unquiet Grave by Cyril Connolly - A highly personal journal written by Cyril Connolly during the devastation of WWII, filled with reflective passages that deal with aging, the break-up of a long-term relationship, and the horrors of the war around him. 

Straw Dogs by John Gray - A radical work of philosophy that sets out to challenge our assumptions about what it means to be human. From Plato to Christianity, from the Enlightenment to Nietzsche and Marx, the Western tradition has been based on arrogant and erroneous beliefs about human beings and their place in the world. 

Collected Maxims by La Rochefoucauld - Deceptively brief and easy to read, La Rochefoucauld's shrewd, unflattering analyses of human behavior have influenced writers, thinkers, and public figures as various as Voltaire, Proust, de Gaulle, Nietzsche, and Conan Doyle. 

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius - These meditations offer a remarkable series of challenging spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the emperor struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe. While the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation and encouragement, Marcus Aurelius also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: a timeless collection that has been consulted and admired throughout the centuries.
