Zest
Climbing from Depression to Philosophy
Daniel Kalderimis

This is a book for anyone who feels that philosophy is relevant to their lives, but doesn't see how. Written by Daniel Kalderimis in the wake of his experience with depression, and no longer sustained by the daily grind and trappings of ordinary life, he needed to find another way back. The search led him past wellness platitudes onto an engaging journey, connecting stands of philosophy in works of George Eliot, Iris Murdoch, and Martha Nussbaum, as well as insights from modern Stoicism and Buddhism. The result is a durable life outlook that uses insights from depression itself to help glimpse what Bertrand Russell called 'zest'.

Daniel Kalderimis is a Wellington barrister who practises internationally; is qualified in Aotearoa New Zealand, England & Wales, and admitted in New York.
Publishing later in 2024, quality soft cover.
