The Philosophers' Mail aims to make us think about why some aspects of the news prove so captivating, and why we shouldn't neccessarily feel too guilty about enjoying them. How come disaster stories are often so uplifting? What makes the love lives of celebrities so interesting? Why do we enjoy politicians being brought down? Why are upheavals in far off lands often so boring?

Design and digital deployment of Alain de Botton cultural enterprise The Philosphers' Mail. The site competes with the might of international news organisations and desks using a minimal editorial and publishing infrastructure.
