Then I found myself thinking about Tony Soprano and the Ancient Greeks. Or rather, a fascinating book called The Sopranos and Philosophy; I Kill Therefore I Am. In one chapter it analysed the unhappiness of the gangster boss through the prism of Aristotle and Plato who suggested that the man with inconsistent motives can never be happy.
