The Labyrinth: An Existential Odyssey with Jean-Paul Sartre : An Existential Odyssey with Jean-Paul Sartre
An Existential Odyssey with Jean-Paul Sartre
Ben Argon, afterword by Christine Daigle, introduction by Gary Cox
An original look at the philosophy of JeanPaul Sartre - told in cartoons As graduates embark on the next phase of their lives, what better way to get them accustomed to the rat race they are about to enter than by introducing them to the philosophy of JeanPaul Sartre? Cleverly told through the story of a pair of rats trapped in the labyrinth of existence, this allegory humorously conveys the key ideas of Sartre's existential philosophy in graphicnovel form - accessible for students and readers of all ages. In addition, two reputable Sartre scholars have contributed the introduction and afterword: Gary Cox, a British philosopher with a doctorate from the University of Birmingham, and Christine Daigle, professor of philosophy at Brock University in Canada.
