sinopsis

Where ddo we come from? Are we merely a cluster of elementary particles in a gigantic world receptacle? And what does it all mean?
In this highly original new book, the philosopher Markus Gabriel challenges our notion of waht exists and what it means to exist. He questions the idea that there is a world that encompasses everything like a container - life, the universe and everuthing else. This all-inclusive being does not exist and cannot exist. For the world itself is not found in the world. And, even when think about the world, the world about which we think is obviously not identical with the world in which we think. For, as we are thinking about, yhis is only a very small event in the world. Besides this, there are still innumerable other obkects and events: rain showers, toothaches and the Wolrd Cup. Drawing on the recent history of philosphy, Gabriel asserts that the world cannot exist at all, because it is not found in the world. Yet, with the exception og the world, everything else exists - even unicorns on the far side of the moon wearing police uniforms.
Reveling in witty thought experiment, word play and the courage of provocation, Markus Gabriel demonstrates the necessity of a questioning mind and the role that humor can play in coming to terms with the abyss of human existence.
