The School of Life 由英國作家艾倫．狄波頓 (Alain de Botton) 於2009年創立，致力於開發個人情感智慧。透過文化和人文學科，探討關於工作、愛情、自我的生活課題，例如如何找到理想的工作、如何更成熟地經營關係、如何保持理性、如何理解世界，從而更懂得如何思考和面對人生。
The School of Life 總部位於英國倫敦，據點遍布世界，2017 於台北開幕。倫敦總部提供系列課程、活動、個人諮商；出版書籍、YouTube頻道、The Book of Life、周邊設計產品；以及企業合作，專業顧問及培訓服務。
來到 The School of Life ，你能夠重新認識自己，以知識和文化為基礎，思索在人生當中所遇到的各種課題。不同於一般制式的解答，我們將從哲學、心理學、文學和藝術等人文學科中，找尋意想不到的應證與全新觀點，拓展每一個人獨立思考和實踐的可能性。
在The School of Life 愉快的學習氛圍中，我們將聚集和你同樣充滿好奇心、思想開放的朋友，互相分享、共同學習，找到生活的靈感，更好地享受人生。
The School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. We address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world.
Headquartered in London, we operate around the globe, delivering our services down a number of channels to suit your different needs. We offer classes and therapies in person. We also publish books, create films and make and sell a range of objects & tools that will assist you in the quest for a more fulfilled life. We also run a consulting and training service for businesses.
The School of Life is a place to step back and think intelligently about central emotional concerns. You will never be cornered by dogma, but we will direct you towards a variety of ideas from the humanities – from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts – ideas that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind. You will meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment.
