Soren Kierkegaard, Alexander Dru (TRN), Walter Kaufman (INT)

The Present Age: On the Death of Rebellion

€11,95

In The Present Age (1846), S√∏ren Kierkegaard analyzes the philosophical implications of a society dominated by the mass-media. What makes the essay so remarkable is the way it seems to speak directly to our time--i.e. the Information Age--where life is dominated by mere "information" not true "knowledge." Kierkegaard even goes so far as to say that advertising and publicity almost immediately co-opts and suppresses revolutionary actions/thoughts.

A stunningly prescient essay that foresaw the rise of twenty-four-hour news and social media, The Present Age examines the philosophical and political implications of a culture of endless, inconsequential commentary and debate.
