蒙田傳記《閱讀蒙田,是為了生活》作者Sarah Bakewell最新作品,一同發現存在主意的起源與意義


1933年的巴黎,在著名的花神咖啡館中,年輕的尚-保羅‧沙特、西蒙‧波娃及雷蒙‧阿隆啜飲著杏桃雞尾酒相聚於此,談論著一種來自柏林的全新的思維,稱為現象學。「如果你是一個現象學者,你就可以談論這杯雞尾酒,並且從中探討出哲學。」一句話因此點燃了一場運動,激發沙特將現象學整合進他的人道主義中,因而創造了沙特特有的激進的自由意志主義。這股力量席捲當時的爵士俱樂部與左岸公園所有的咖啡廳,這就是存在主意的前身。以傳記性的內容,細細描述存在主義和現象學泰斗爭論何謂生活?何謂自由?怎樣成為一個真正的人?這些與存在主義相關的議題從二戰之前就開始,一直延綿至今。

Paris, near the turn of 1932-3. Three young friends meet over apricot cocktails at the Bec-de-Gaz bar on the rue Montparnasse. They are Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and their friend Raymond Aron, who opens their eyes to a radical new way of thinking…

‘It’s not often that you miss your bus stop because you’re so engrossed in reading a book about existentialism, but I did exactly that... The story of Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, Heidegger et al is strange, fun and compelling reading. If it doesn’t win awards, I will eat my copy’ Independent on Sunday

‘Bakewell shows how fascinating were some of the existentialists’ ideas and how fascinating, often frightful, were their lives. Vivid, humorous anecdotes are interwoven with a lucid and unpatronising exposition of their complex philosophy… Tender, incisive and fair’ Daily Telegraph

‘Quirky, funny, clear and passionate… Few writers are as good as Bakewell at explaining complicated ideas in a way that makes them easy to understand’ Mail on Sunday
