Description
By far the most profound thinker of the 19th century.
Ludwig WittgensteinThe Present Age is the stunningly prescient essay on the rise of mass media particularly advertising, marketing, and publicity by the great philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, the father of existentialism. With an introduction from celebrated philosopher Walter Kaufmann who states those who would know Kierkegaard can do no better than to begin with this book The Present Age is an ideal introduction to one of the greatest thinkers in the history of western philosophy.
