Do you also like to wear black turtleneck jumpers? Do you believe that freedom is the most important thing in the world? And that Paris is for wisdom-lovers? Then you absolutely must meet Sarah Bakewell – at the Existentialist Café! With her eponymous world best-seller, English philosopher Sarah Bakewell invites us to enter the wonderful conceptual universe of Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and Albert Camus.
Like no other 20th-century philosophical movement, existentialism continues to shape our ideas of what it means to lead a free, authentic, and above all emancipated life. An evening for everyone who always wondered why an apricot cocktail holds within itself the entirety of reality – and why revolting against the alleged absurdity of our existence every day is worth it!
