Welcome to the Existentialist Café! With Sarah Bakewell

In englischer Sprache


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!
