Summary
This title proposes a new way of looking at art, suggesting that it can be useful, relevant, and therapeutic. Through practical examples, the authors argue that certain great works of art have clues as to how to manage the tensions and confusions of modern life. Chapters on love, nature, money, and politics show how art can help with many common difficulties, from forging good relationships to coming to terms with mortality
