Extrait : "C'est un métier que de faire un livre, comme de faire une pendule : il faut plus que de l'esprit pour être auteur. Un magistrat allait par son mérite à la première dignité, il était homme délié et pratique dans les affaires : il a fait imprimer un ouvrage moral, qui est rare par le ridicule.

While ostensibly commenting on the work of a contemporary novelist, Kierkegaard used this review as a critique of his society and age. The influence of this short piece has been far-reaching. The apocalyptic final sections are the source for central notions in Heidegger's Being and Time. Later readers have seized on the essay as a prophetic analysis... more...

With lyric eloquence,... more...

Meursault leads an apparently unremarkable bachelor life in Algiers until he commits a random act of violence. His lack of emotion and failure to show remorse only serve to increase his guilt in the eyes of the law, and challenges the fundamental values of society - a set of rules so binding that any person breaking them is condemned as an outsider.... more...

This book offers a sustained engagement with the political philosophy of Paul Ricoeur and demonstrates both the significance of the political in his own thinking throughout his career, and how his understanding of the political offers something valuable to current discussions of issues in political philosophy. more...
