Product description

Review

Michel Onfray declares war on religion and pleads for an art of living, one that discovers in philosophy the expression of a freedom forever being reinvented. A caustic new essay.

Thierry Paquot in Le Magazine litt?raire 'Michel Onfray is everything the Da Vinci Code is not. Speaking from the epoch of the Internet and the mobile phone, Onfray rounds furiously on a collection of intellectuals (he calls them 'prehistoric') who resort to magical thinking in their attempt to justify the skulduggery of present times (Nicolas Bourcier and Yann Plougastel in Le Monde 2)

Muscular in style and purport, Onfray sometimes swaps his philosophical garb for a pamphleteer's weeds. Philosophy gets out on the streets again, militant as it has never been since Sartre, Foucault and Deleuze. (Guillaume Allary in Elle)

About the Author

Michel Onfray was born in 1959 in the village of Argentan near Caen where he still lives. A high-school philosophy teacher for 20 years, he resigned from the state education sector and in 2002 set up the People's University in Caen. His twenty books map out a theory of hedonism: some celebrate the senses - smell, taste and the visual; others formulate a contemporary atheist ethics. He is currently at work  on a six-volume alternative history of philosophy of which the first two volumes have been published.
