Jules Evans is a writer, speaker, and practical philosopher.

About: I research ideas and practices from different eras and cultures, and explore how they can help us flourish and improve our well-being today. I’m a practical philosopher - I do academic research on ideas from different eras and cultures, then try them out in my life, and interview others to see how ideas have helped or harmed them. From Stoicism to CBT, from Aristotle to ayahuasca, I search for the best wisdom to help people suffer less and flourish more. Find out about my new pre-recorded online course Essential Philosophy for Modern Life.

My first book, Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations, explored how people are rediscovering ancient Greek and Roman philosophies and how Greek philosophy (partiularly Stoicism) inspired Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). It’s since been published in 19 countries and was a Times book of the year. My second book, The Art of Losing Control, explored how people find ecstatic experiences in modern western culture. It was published in the UK in May 2017, and in the US in September 2017, and has also been published in Holland, Spain, Russia and Italy. In 2019 I published a little book on ayahuasca tourism, called Holiday From the Self. In 2020, a book I edited about spiritual emergencies, called Breaking Open, is being published.
