Journey Through Dread

£14.99

Product description

This American-published work is a serious, but characteristically sparkling account of the three major contributors to Existentialist philosophy: Kierkegaard, Heidegger, and Sartre. It includes an examination and reassessment of the Hegelian Dialectic. For the thoughtful reader, and the student of philosophy, here is an intelligent, sometimes controversial, and always stimulating study in the field of modern philosophy.

Percival Arland "Percy" Ussher (1899–1980) was an Anglo-Irish academic, essayist and translator, a member of one of the oldest Irish "Ascendancy" families, who became known as the only Irish professional philosopher. He not only wrote on philosophy, but also published a comparative study of Shaw, Joyce and Yeats.

Our copy of the book, protected by an unclipped dust jacket (which has suffered only minimal physical wear, but is somewhat stained, particularly on the back) is in generally good condition, though the front cover appears to have been affected by damp at some point. Bound in black cloth with gilt title etc on the spine, it shows almost no signs of use or shelf wear externally. The long edge of the text block is slightly stained from the same stain that marks the back of the dust jacket. Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages, the endpapers are lightly browned beyond the limits of the dust jacket flaps, and there are some small light brown stains to the edge of the title page and contents page. Otherwise the pages are clean and bright with no markings. A nice B/W portrait of Kierkegaard forms the frontispiece.
