A literary movement founded in Spain in 1919 and composed of young, experimental poets sharing the goals of completely breaking with tradition and creating a "pure" sort of poetry; upon his return from Spain in 1921, Jorge Luis Borges founded an Argentine Ultraist movement modeled after the Spanish one; the focus of his group was on experimental poetic forms; their magazine, Prisma, was published in the form of posters pasted on buildings and walls throughout Buenos Aires. Drawing from the authoritative Princeton editions of Kierkegaard's writings, this book presents a broad selection of his wit and wisdom, as well as a stimulating introduction to his life and work.

However, it can also be regarded as a sad reflection on 20th century European history. Though termed the "religious stage", this stage is embodied by a clear desire to do a duty to something bigger than oneself. For I declare that freedom, in respect of concrete circumstances, can have no other end and aim but itself; and when once a man has seen that values depend upon himself, in that state of forsakenness he can will only one thing, and that is freedom as the foundation of all values.

He wrote to one of his friends, ".. . if you give up Christ, you will have to give up God as well."53 In other words, a significant belief in God involves the implications of the Incarnation which Kierkegaard stressed. Many have fallen by the wayside but a number have stuck. Contrary to propaganda and the misuse of his works, it is not the warrior type. Our bodies adapts to the surface in which it'll punch, when you offer this a chance. In Being and Time he presented a method of rooting philosophical explanations in human existence (Dasein) to be analysed in terms of existential categories (existentiale); and this has led many commentators to treat him as an important figure in the existentialist movement.

All people examine their lives to some extent, and this is simply what this philosopher means: in order to survive in society, grow, and succeed, there are times in people's lives when they need to think through what they believe and feel and why they act. By the time they had completed their "truth telling," 155 men and women had been cried out against and charged with witchcraft, eighteen had been hanged (along with two dogs), and one elderly man, Giles Corry, had been pressed to death in an attempt to force a confession from him.

A fringe figure for most of his life, Bataille's writings dealt with ideas of mysticism, eroticism, human sacrifice, and deviant behavior. Humans live in a world where they are told what to do and how to do it, and faced with what is considered right and what is seen as wrong, but at the end of the day, humans have the freewill to do as they please and make their own choices, which leads them to being responsible for those actions.
