ALAIN DE BOTTON ON MUSEUMS AND ATHEISM

 

Religion for Atheists by Alain de BottonCONTEST GIVEAWAY: Retweet for a chance to win a copy of Alain de Botton’s Religion for Atheists. (Contest ends Feb 29th, 2012)

I know what you’re thinking… What does religion have to do with museums, let alone babes?

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from writer/philosopher Alain de Botton wondering if Babes At The Museum would like to do a giveaway contest for his latest book Religion For Atheists (out March 6th.) He admitted he had a similar affinity for the romantic spell that museums cast on us art-lovers.

In his book, de Botton argues how modern museums fail to tell people why art matters, how religion reminds us of the purpose of art, and how curators should restructure museums in order to better nourish our psychological well-being.
