Review: Being and Nothingness
Being and Nothingness by Jean-Paul Sartre
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book, the Bible of modern existentialism, is one of the most difficult and yet rewarding and thought-provoking books you will ever read. There is hardly a page here which does not need to be read over and over again in order to absorb and understand the insights and ideas that are being offered. No matter how much or how little you agree or disagree with Sartre, there is one thing guaranteed: after you read this book, you will never think about your life, yourself, or the world you live in the same way again.
