Description


In his seminal 1846 tract The Present Age, Soren Kierkegaard ("the father of existentialism"--New York Times) analyzes the philosophical implications of a society dominated by mass media--a society eerily similar to our own. A stunningly prescient essay on the rising influence of advertising, marketing, and publicity, The Present Age is essential reading for anyone who wishes to better understand the modern world.
