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.

Review quote

""The Present Age" shows just how original Kierkegaard was. He brilliantly foresaw the dangers of the lack of commitment and responsiblity in the Public Sphere. When everything is up for endless detached critical comment as on blogs and cable news, action finally becomes impossible."--Hubert L. Dreyfus, University of California, Berkeley
