Sedimentation article at Aeon

A new Rethinking Existentialism online article is now available at Aeon magazine.

Sedimentation: the existentialist challenge to stereotypes briefly outlines the concept of sedimentation in the philosophies of Simone de Beauvoir and Frantz Fanon.

This is the third online article to present ideas from the book, following on from
The Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Existentialist at OUP Blog
and Five Underrated Existentialist Classics at Five Books.

All being well, there should be more of these in 2019. Happy new year!

Oxford event and new online article

The next event is at Blackwell’s bookshop in Oxford at 11am on Saturday 1st December.

This is an interview by Nigel Warburton in the best room of the best bookshop in the world.

There will probably be (early) festive drinks and nibbles. There will certainly be books.

Please do come along if you can! To help them gauge numbers, you can register your interest online.

And a new online article has just been published: The Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Existentialist.

Underrated Existentialist Classics at Five Books

Rethinking Existentialism is now at the printing press.

It is available to pre-order with at 12% discount and free UK delivery from Blackwell’s bookshop.

The first online article exploring the book’s central themes is now available on the Five Books website.

It is an interview with Nigel Warburton about five underrated existentialist classics.

It was a lot of fun to do and I hope you enjoy reading it.

All being well, there should be more articles like this in the next few months. They will be advertised here when they appear.

Book due to be published in July

OUP Book Cover Not Yet Designed Rethinking Existentialism is now in the final editing and design stages at Oxford University Press and scheduled to hit at least some good bookshops in July.

All being well, online articles and short papers highlighting and developing themes of the book will appear between now and then. Each will be advertised on this news feed when it becomes available.

The first short paper – Beauvoir and the Meaning of Life – is now available.

Because the book is now in press, the draft chapters are no longer on the website. They have been replaced with abstracts for the book and each of its eleven chapters.

The book has been significantly improved by feedback on the draft. So, if you commented on any of the chapters: thank you!
