By Witold Gombrowicz

In a small literary gem packed with sardonic wit, incredible insights, and provocative feedback Witold Gombrowicz discusses Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Sartre, and Heidegger in six "one-hour" essays—and addresses Marxism in a "fifteen-minute" piece.

"Who hasn't needed for a painless solution to discover what the massive pictures of philosophy—Hegel and Kant, Nietzsche and Sartre—thought of the human ? It hasn't ever been effortless examining such ambitious thinkers, and so much explainers and textbooks both go wrong or bloodbath the language. So think my excitement in starting Witold Gombrowicz's consultant to Philosophy in Six Hours and Fifteen mins, a very good attempt at summarizing techniques in daring, declarative sentences...[This publication] is just like the path in philosophy you need you had taken."—David Lehman, Bloomberg News

"A needs to for each reader of Gombrowicz."—Denis Hollier, big apple collage

Even still, there are things you cannot predict, you just do not see them coming until the iceberg is dead ahead. If your ship is too big and you are trying to sail too fast, you practically assure yourself that you will hit the iceberg. Smaller ships might not carry as much, but without all that weight, they can get going quicker and are much more maneuverable when hazards appear in their path.
