|Bibliography, etc. Note:|| Includes bibliographical references (pages -421) and index.
|Formatted Contents Note:|| Sir, what a horror, existentialism! -- To the things themselves -- The magician from Messkirch -- The they, the call -- To crunch flowering almonds -- I don't want to eat my manuscripts -- Occupation, liberation -- Devastation -- Life studies -- The dancing philosopher -- Croisés comme ça -- The eyes of the least favoured -- Having once tasted phenomenology -- The imponderable bloom.
|Summary, etc.:|| Featuring not only philosophers, but also playwrights, anthropologists, convicts, and revolutionaries, At the Existentialist Café follows the existentialists’ story, from the first rebellious spark through the Second World War, to its role in postwar liberation movements such as anticolonialism, feminism, and gay rights. Interweaving biography and philosophy, it is the epic account of passionate encounters—fights, love affairs, mentorships, rebellions, and long partnerships—and a vital investigation into what the existentialists have to offer us today, at a moment when we are once again confronting the major questions of freedom, global responsibility, and human authenticity in a fractious and technology-driven world.
