A Short Philosophy of Birds
We often need the help from those smaller than us. Having spent a lifetime watching birds, Philippe and Elise - a French ornithologist and a philosopher - draw out the lessons that birds can give us about how to live. You'll discover why the robin is braver than the eagle, what the arctic tern teaches us about the joy of travel, and ask whether the head or the heart is the best route to love (as shown by the mallard and the penguin).
