By Witold Gombrowicz

Might be a person within the Amazon group can disabuse me of this inspiration, yet this e-book turns out nearly fullyyt valueless. if you would like a really speedy creation to those philosophers, you'll do larger on Wikipedia (especially the German version). Gombrowicz is, i believe, one of many relevant novelists of the final century. His brief tales are large; "Cosmos" within the new translation is a masterpiece. i presumed that no matter if I wasn't persuaded via his tackle philosophy, i would examine anything approximately him, or approximately his novels; and that i additionally proposal I'de be entertained, simply because he could be fabulously funny.

But i will not get any perception into his novels from this; it is it appears meant to be whimsical, yet for me, no less than, there is not a lot whimsy right here. and that i wouldn't learn it for info approximately those philosophers.

But if somebody available in the market could make the relationship among his novels and this ebook, i might feel free to listen to approximately it.
