The Existentialist's Guide to Death, the Universe and Nothingness is an entertaining philosophical guide to life, love, hate, freedom, sex, anxiety, God and death; a guide to everything and nothing. Gary Cox, bestselling author of How to Be an Existentialist and How to Be a Philosopher, takes us on an exciting journey through the central themes of existentialism, a philosophy of the human condition. The Existentialist's Guide fascinates, informs, provokes and inspires as it explores existentialism's uncompromising view of human reality. It leaves the reader with no illusions about how hard it is to live honestly and achieve authenticity. It has, however, a redeeming humour that sets the wisdom of the great existentialist philosophers alongside the wit of great musicians and comedians. A realistic self-help book for anyone interested in personal empowerment, The Existentialist's Guide offers a wealth of profound philosophical insight into life, the universe and everything.

Book Description Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is an entertaining philosophical guide to life, death, everything and nothing! The Existentialist s Guide to Death, the Universe and Nothingness is an entertaining and thoroughly philosophical guide to life, death, everything and nothing. Gary Cox, bestselling author of How to Be an Existentialist and How to Be a Philosopher , takes us on a journey through all the themes most central to the existential philosophy of the human condition and, indeed, to life itself. The Existentialist s Guide entertains, provokes and informs in equal measure. It pulls no punches in its account of how existentialism sees the human condition and leaves the reader with no illusions about just how hard it is to become a truly authentic person. It does all this, however, with a redeeming humour and an approach that sets the wisdoms of great comedians and musicians, from Woody Allen to Sister Sledge, alongside the pronouncements of the great existentialist philosophers. Above all, the book offers a wealth of philosophical insight and guidance relating to life s milestones - this is a philosophical self-help book for anyone concerned with personal empowerment.
