The School of Life, the organisation founded in 2008 by renowned philosopher and author Alain de Botton and now headquartered in London, delivers with their typical elegant brilliance a series of exquisitely designed and sustainably produced notebooks, packaged in threes and covering a good range of character and societal types: meet 3 Notebooks, 3 Thinkers. Perfect gift for just about anybody if you choose right. A newly discontinued line, we've got the very last ones of these simply gorgeous small notebook packages - get them quick!
History is filled with some fascinating 'schools of thought' dedicated to tackling life's big problems in distinctive ways. Each notebook carries an introduction to a great Feminist thinker on the inside front page, their name beautifully printed on the cover - and is otherwise empty for your own projects. Feminists featured in these notebooks: Mill, De Beauvoir, Greer
The patriarchy exists despite the goodwill of individual men in different societies - feminists have sought not to denigrate men but to address the power imbalances that have allowed roughly half the human population to treat the other half as their inferiors in every way, denying them money, education, freedom and rights over their bodies and property. It is only in recent history that things have changed, thanks in part to the pioneering work of people known as ‘feminists’ who – without guns, money or power – used some cogently-expressed ideas to change the world.
