This is an entertaining philosophical guide to life, death, everything and nothing! "The Existentialist's Guide to Death, the Universe and Nothingness" is an entertaining and thoroughly philosophical guide to life, death, everything and nothing. Gary Cox, bestselling author of "How to Be an Existentialist" and "How to Be a Philosopher", takes us on a journey through all the themes most central to the existential philosophy of the human condition and, indeed, to life itself. "The Existentialist's Guide" entertains, provokes and informs in equal measure. It pulls no punches in its account of how existentialism sees the human condition and leaves the reader with no illusions about just how hard it is to become a truly authentic person. It does all this, however, with a redeeming humour and an approach that sets the wisdoms of great comedians and musicians, from Woody Allen to Sister Sledge, alongside the pronouncements of the great existentialist philosophers. Above all, the book offers a wealth of philosophical insight and guidance relating to life's milestones - this is a philosophical self-help book for anyone concerned with personal empowerment.
