I'm slightly ashamed to admit that I've always rather regarded existentialists poorly.
I mean, come on, Sartre and Nietzsche were complete a$$h013$,
so they weren't doing the school of thought any favors, as far as I was concerned.
A while back though, I developed a little intellectual crush on a guy who thinks Kirkegaard is da bomb. I decided to read something of his and, since it came first, I started with Fear and Trembling.
Holy mother of a Hindu cow. Like to give me an aneurysm!
So I am now listening to some lectures to explain the book and ya know?
I'm beginning to think Kirkegaard is pretty much a freaking genius.
But I still think Sartre and Nietzsche are a$$h013$
