"By far the most profound thinker of the 19th century."
-- Ludwig Wittgenstein The 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.
