Not an easy introduction to Existentialism.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Introducing Existentialism: A Graphic Guide (Paperback)
Despite the deceptive comic strip format, this is not an easy introduction to Existentialism. In fact the ideas come thick and fast from the author who embarks on a personal quest to try to understand the terms of this philosophical position. Having read a number of other 'Introduction to ... ' type books written in this format, I was expecting something that was more readily accessible. Not that I believe philosophy is ever simple, but a book in a series like this should give a clear and broad overview for the novice and an appetizer for further reading if it whets their appetite. As far as this volume goes it tends to leave you feeling inadequate to pursue the quest any further.
