A Guide to Philosophy in Six Hours and Fifteen Minutes


 Recommended by Paul, City Lights Books

In this inspired book, the eminent Polish author Witold Gombrowicz reflects on seven great philosophers. He discusses Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Sartre, and Heidegger in six "one-hour" essays, then allows Marx a short "fifteen-minute" piece.

“Brilliantly, savagely funny. . . . Gombrowicz is that rare writer in whom the weight of a powerful intellect is leavened by both linguistic daring and an infectious sense of whimsy.”—Benjamin Paloff, The Nation

“[This book] is like the course in philosophy you wish you had taken.”—David Lehman, Bloomberg News

"Vintage Gombrowicz: concise, sober, lucid, and radically agnostic."—Ewa Thompson, Slavic and East European Journal

“A must for every reader of Gombrowicz.”—Denis Hollier, New York University
