What do you look for when it comes to holiday reads? I'm heading to #paris on Friday, my first time leaving the country in a year + a half! I am the most excited I have ever been for a trip + dominating my thoughts at the moment is the eternal question: how many books should I take?? This little pile is the selection of reads I've settled on so far, most in some way related to Paris/France, because I love reading about the cities I'm in when I'm there: · #attheexistentialistcafe by Sarah Bakewell (trés chic) · #thislittleart by Kate Briggs, all about translation + Barthes · #iloveyoutoomuch by Alicia Drake, recommended by @marielouisespp when I was crowdsourcing ideas for Parisienne reading material · #threewomen by Lisa Taddeo (#gifted @bloomsburypublishing) because I'm just itching to devour it. Can you recommend any other books I should read when in Paris? Let me know! #books #bookstagram #holiday #holidayreads #tbr #toberead #bookstack #travel #travelgram #philosophy #nonfiction #bookrecommendations #reading #bookworm #bibliophile

Got these books, started Clockwork Orange after finishing The Player of Games (couldn't get into that book before, but it has a great twist). Also I hate the main character of Clockwork Orange. #attheexistentialistcafe #freedombeingandapricotcocktails #clockworkorange #bookdepository #book #reading

What's on your nonfiction #tbr? Something about 2019 is making me crave nonfiction constantly. Fortunately I have a juicy tower of nonfiction reads just waiting to be devoured on ny shelves. I'm particularly excited about #thislittleart by Kate Briggs which will be my first (of many I'm sure) @fitzcarraldoeditions + #bloodybrilliantwomen by Cathy Newman. For the time being, I've picked up #illbegoneinthedark again, having started it at the beginning of the month but then letting it fall to the sidelines. I have a feeling it might be a bad choice for someone living on their own 😓 #books #bookstagram #thesecondsex #simonedebeauvoir #feminism #attheexistentialistcafe #philosophy #makingevil #darjeeling #tea #maths #thingstomakeanddointhefourthdimension #toberead #bookstack

Instead, this cup of coffee is a rich aroma, at once earthy and perfumed; it is the lazy movement of a curlicue of steam rising from its surface. As I lift it to my lips, it is a placidly shifting liquid and a weight in my hand inside its thick-rimmed cup. It is an approaching warmth, then an intense dark flavour on my tongue, starting with a slightly austere jolt and then relaxing into a comforting warmth, which spreads from the cup into my body, bringing the promise of lasting alertness and refreshment. The promise, the anticipated sensations, the smell, the colour and the flavour are all part of the coffee as phenomenon. They all emerge by being experienced.

March #tbr 📚 March is really exciting for me because it feels like the publishing industry wakes up from its winter slumber + some fantastic new books are coming out which makes work so much more fun! I still have a mighty pile of unread books to get through so can't get too tempted... It also means the @womensprize is just around the corner as well as #iwd19 hence my female-focused TBR (although tbh when is my TBR not female-focused..). This photo despite being taken this morning is already outdated, as I've just finished #thehuntingparty audiobook (the hardback was kindly provided for free by @harpercollinsuk) which was fabulously gripping. Next up I'll be listening to #halfofayellowsun by #chimamandangoziadichie. I've felt a pull towarda more nonfiction recently so I've put in #illbegoneinthedark + #attheexistentialistcafe + of course couldn't leave my girl #agathachristie out of the mix. It's time for a Marple so I've picked #thethirteenproblems. Finally, in March #showthemagoodtime is released by @faberbooks, who kindly provided a signed proof! What are you planning on reading this month? #toberead #books #bookstack #bookstagram #reading #bibliophile #bookworm #unreadbooks #truecrime #ssdgm

The “Saison Davenport” from @shacklandsbrewing is a fruity, spicy, funky offering that is an excellent #pairing with the book, “At the Existentialist Cafe,” by Sarah Bakewell, from publisher @c.h.beckliteratur - the complexity of the beer is perfectly complimented by the text on Bakewell’s pages: as we slowly appreciate the light pepper and mild lemon flavours of the beer, we also slowly navigate the apt mix of history, philosophy and character on display in the book. ✨ . Drinking with Jean-Paul Sartre and Simon de Beauvoir in Paris cafes while discussing existential concerns and how to politicize them is similar to enjoying the Saison Davenport. They are both deep with flavour and enlighten with every turn of the page or sip from the glass. ✨ . To be fair, of course, JP and Simon spend most of their time drinking apricot cocktails, but given the subtle stone fruit flavours inherent to this saison, I think they would have no problem approving of this beer... In fact, I think this may get them to switch over to the brew side entirely. 🤩🙌 . Sip, ponder; read, ponder; sip, read: take your time. 📖 🍑🍻 #pairingwithbeer #thisiscraftbeerlifestyle ✨ . . 📸 @youbymia ✨ . . FULL @SHACKLANDSBREWING BLOG POST ON FRIDAY!!

@tehminakhanwrites tagged me in her #top10unreadbooks and I decided to tweak it a little to showcase the top 10 intimidating reads I have lying around my house. The ones that I want to get around to reading sometime... sometime. 1. Wizard of the Crow by Ngugi Wa Thiong’o - a landmark of postcolonial African Literature. 800 pages. Size intimidation. 2. At the Existentialist Cafe by Sarah Bakewell - Not intimidating as an individual read but I’ve told myself I’ll explore the writings of the major thinkers of the existentialist movement before getting to this. 3. The emperor of all maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee - after working in Cancer research for 7 years, it’s not the subject that intimidates but the dreariness. 4. City of Joy by Dominique Lapierre - Recommended by some of my favorite Bengalis and I’m only hesitating because what if I don’t like the book? 5. Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth - a personal challenge to conquer this book sometime. How can I let a book defeat me? A family saga at that? 6. Man’s Seach for Meaning by Viktor Frankl - a well meaning gift but spiritual lessons from Nazi camp.. I need more time to get to it. 7. From Dawn to Decadence by Jacques Barzun - Another highly recommended gift, but the size, the subject, the font.. ugh! 8. Les Mis - because: Les Mis. 9. Wuthering Heights - pink, pretty and small. But I’ve heard horror tales of unrelenting darkness between the covers. 10. Ulysses - The mother of all intimidating reads. One of the few books to make it to my bucket list. Just writing about these books is exhausting, phew:) #intimidatingreads #jamesjoyce #ulysses #lesmis #victorhugo #wutheringheights #emilybronte #suitableboy #vikramseth #manssearchformeaning #viktorefrankl #fromdawntodecadence #jacquesbarzun #wizardofthecrow #ngugiwathiongo #attheexistentialistcafe #sarahbakewell #emperorofallmaladies #siddharthamukherjee #cityofjoy #dominiquelapierre Tagging - @esoteric_tan , @roshan79 , @chitraahanthem

As a Sartre-Lover I can’t wait to read this one. 🍸📚🍷 I think it will be an easy and fun read about the Existentialism Philosophy, and inspiring authors and human beings like Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, etc. I was always fascinated by Sartre’s books. They opened my mind when I was at school. They made me questioning and doubting about how we live, what we believe and if such a thing like “God” exists. I remember him and Musil. They have been among my most inspirational authors. How about you? Did you read this one? #existentialism #literature #philosophy #sarahbakewell #attheexistentialistcafe #sartre #readmore #drinks #decadence #simonedebeauvoir #funread #reading #freedom #beliefs #faith #nihilism #libri #cantwait #relax #chill #mind #inspiring #motivational #books #book #bookstagram #instabook #xl8 #translatingprincess

Meine nächste Lektüre, ehe ich mich Buzzati's "Die Tatarenwüste" hingebe: "Das Café der Existentialisten" von Sarah Bakewell (angemerkt, ein Sachbuch). · Hat es jemand von euch schon gelesen?

"Man mache sich etwas vor, wenn man behauptet, das eigene Handeln sei von moralischen Werten oder psychischen Gegebenheiten, von realen Erfahrungen und Ereignissen bestimmt. Diese Faktoren mögen eine Rolle spielen, aber sie bilden lediglich die 'Situation', in der man handeln muss. Selbst in einer unerträglichen Lage [...] ist man frei zu entscheiden, wie man mit dieser Situation gedanklich und praktisch umgeht. Man trifft seine Entscheidungen immer von dem Punkt aus, an dem man gerade steht. Und indem man wählt, wählt man, wer man sein will." Sarah Bakewell erzählt in 'Das Café der Existenzialisten' (O: 'At the Existentialist Café'), wie der Existenzialismus, eine philosophische Strömung, die in der Nachkriegszeit vor allem in Frankreich sehr verbreitet war, zum Lebensgefühl einer Generation wurde, die sich nach Freiheit und authentischer Existenz sehnte. Sie schafft hier eine Kollektivbiographie der Existenzialisten (und ihrer Vorgänger bzw Vordenker) - über Sartre und Simone de Beauvoir, Husserl und Heidegger, Albert Camus, Merleau-Ponty, etc. Mit Philosophie habe ich mich bisher nur wenig auseinander gesetzt, es erschien mir immer zu kompliziert und weitschweifig - wo soll man da auch anfangen? Zwar beschäftige ich mich sehr gerne mit de Beauvoir und ihrem Werk, aber die philosophischen Komponenten waren nie mein Hauptaugenmerk dabei. Sarah Bakewell bietet hier daher eine gute Einstiegsmöglichkeit, denn sie fasst die verschiedenen Ansichten und Entwicklungen der einzelnen Philosophen kurz und prägnant (und sicher teilweise auch vereinfachend) zusammen, so dass man nicht gleich überfordert wird, sich aber eine gute Vorstellung machen kann. Ein sehr empfehlenswertes Buch! #dascaféderexistenzialisten #freiheitseinundaprikosencocktails #attheexistentialistcafé #attheexistentialistcafe #freedombeingandapricotcocktails #sarahbakewell #jeanpaulsartre #simonedebeauvoir #martinheidegger #edmundhusserl #mauricemerleauponty #albertcamus #bookstagram #igbooks #igreads #instabooks #instareads #currentlyreading #litterature #literatur #nonfiction #sachbuch #biography #biographie #philosophy #existentialism #bibliophile #bücher #bücherliebe #coffee

My interest in "existentialism", or "phenomenology" really took hold after reading Sarah Bakewell's 'At the Existentialist Cafe' - and what a good book that was. These are probably the two most notable texts from that branch of philosophy: 'Being and Time' by Martin Heidegger and 'Being and Nothingness' by Jean-Paul Sartre. I'm almost halfway through Being and Time right now and Being and Nothingness will follow after I'm done. Not sure if I'm understanding all of Heidegger...actually I'm positive I'm not lol, but at least I can pretend. Who knew so much could be written about 'Being', or "Daesin" as it were. Philosophy is good for the soul. #book #books #read #reading #philosophy #existentialism #phenomenology #ontology #being #daesin #philosopher #philosophers #philosophizing #knowledge #knowledgeispower #existentialist #cafe #attheexistentialistcafe #beingandtime #beingandnothingness #time #nothingness #goodreads #bookstagram #bookshelf

NOWA RECENZJA i KONKURS. Dawno nie miałam tyle do napisania na temat jakiejś książki. Zmierzając ku końcowi tej lektury natrafiłam na to proste, ale tak silne w swym przekazie zdanie: "To, co czytasz, wpływa na twoje życie." Przekraczając próg tej "kawiarni" czytelnik dowiaduje się, że żadna nowoczesna filozofia nie napędzała tak feminizmu, walk o prawa osób homoseksualnych, kruszenia barier klasowych oraz zmagań antyrasistowskich i antykolonialnych. Nie ma lepszej książki dla outsidera, buntownika i wykluczonego, który za pomocą własnych myśli, czuje wszystko. Zapraszam na bloga, gdzie do zdobycia dla Was również trzy egzemplarze "Kawiarni Egzystencjalistów".

In July I spent two weeks in France with my wife Ioanna and my daughter Cybele. Most of this time was in Paris, a city I've become somewhat familiar with over the years. 🌻🌻🌻 When I was there, I began reading this book by Sarah Bakewell, an English author only six years my elder, who predictably enough also became familiar with existentialism a bit earlier than me - she was 16, I was 19. We were both, as her bio suggests "teenage existentialists". 🌻 🌻 🌻 This book is an excellent introduction to the gallery of thinkers who furnish the walls of this philosophical school - I was tempted to write 'system', but they would probably like that term even less than 'school'. Of course, I chose to take this particular book to Paris, because that's where most of the action takes place. 🌻 🌻 🌻 #heidegger, #sartre, #debeauvoir, #camus, #kierkegaard, #merlauponty, #levinas, #simoneweil and a rich cast of other fascinating characters inhabit the pages of this book, which succeeds at the unlikely feat of having both philosophical integrity and popular appeal. 🌻 🌻 🌻 The reading experience is recommended, and of course enhanced by a walk through the #jardinsduluxembourg or through #stgermaindespres! #attheexistentialistcafe #sarahbakewell #existentialism

« Au café existentialiste » de Sarah Bakewell : . 📖 Un livre passionnant ! Sous forme d’un roman, l’autrice nous conte la naissance de la phénoménologie / l’existentialisme, son évolution grandissante pendant puis après la seconde guerre mondiale et son impact sur la société d’hier et d’aujourd’hui. . 💕 À mes yeux, l’intérêt de ce livre est : - de nous présenter de nombreux penseurs du XXème siècle qui ont fortement contribué à forger le monde d’aujourd’hui, mais aussi de découvrir leurs interactions, leurs conflits et leurs points de divergence ; - de contextualiser les diverses productions de ces philosophes et d’expliquer le pourquoi et les objectifs de ces écrits ; - de nous donner l’envie de (re)découvrir les grands ouvrages de ces écrivains avec un nouveau regard, un regard plus avisé. . Quelques grands penseurs mentionnés dans cet ouvrage : Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Emmanuel Levinas, Albert Camus... . #aucafeexistentialiste #sarahbakewell #editionsalbinmichel #attheexistentialistcafe #le1hebdo

Pewna dama w pociągu powiedziała kiedyś: „Egzystencjalizm - cóż za okropność, proszę pana! Syn mojej koleżanki jest egzystencjalistą; mieszka z Murzynką w czyjejś kuchni!” Przekroczyłam próg tej kawiarni umysłów, metaforycznej i dosłownej. Trudno się oderwać od tego reportażu historycznego, w którym dowiadujemy się jak Sartre stworzył „filozofię oczekiwań, zmęczenia, niechęci, ekscytacji, spaceru pod górkę, namiętności wobec upragnionej kochanki oraz obrzydzenia wobec niechcianej, paryskich ogrodów, zimnego jesiennego morza, uczucia siedzenia na zbyt mocno wypchanej kanapie, tego, jak układają się piersi kobiety leżącej na wznak. (...) Zrobił filozofię z zawrotu głowy, voyeuryzmu, wstydu, sadyzmu, rewolucji, muzyki i seksu. Mnóstwa seksu.” „Kawiarnię egzystencjalistów. Wolność, Bycie i koktajle morelowe” trzeba czytelniczo odwiedzić :) a Wy co czytacie w pierwszy dzień września? :) #sarahbakewell #kawiarniaegzystencjalistow #wolnośćbycieikoktajlemkrelowe #wydawnictwokrytykipolitycznej #attheexistentialistcafe #currentlyreading #terazczytam #takczytam #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookgirl #bookstagrammer #igreads #instagramczyta #booksofig #readersofinstagram #bookobsessed #booklover #bookworm #kochamczytać #czytamwszędzie #readingoutside #ksiegarkanaregale #bookblogger #bookaddict #booknerd #czytambolubie #goodreads #bookishfeatures #bookgram

Attempting to understand the Absurd without my head splitting and/or exploding. Like with most philosophers, clarity isn’t Camus’s strong suit - though he does better than most. . . I’ve been fascinated by existentialism for ages, especially since reading Sarah Bakewell’s At The Existentialist Café, and I’ve admired Camus since reading The Plague (which is, in my opinion, better than The Outsider) - so learning more about the Absurd is vital for me. I’m also trying to transfer that method of thought into the protagonist of the novel I’m writing.

At the Existentialist Café~ Sarah Bakewell * “Ideas are interesting, but people are vastly more so.” * Sarah Bakewell intertwines the lives and ideas of the existentialists, and their philosophical ancestors, to convey the sense of excitement that this new philosophy once brought about in the cafes. While she can’t take us back to that space, what she can do is make them stand out on their own as people with their own flaws and ideologies who stood for whatever they believed in, and their shortcomings regardless of their brilliance. * It’s a story of Sarte, Beauvior, and Merleau-Ponty, but the cast of characters includes Camus, Baldwin, Arendt, and Wright, as well as numerous men and women who stood by their varying philosophies regardless of their hurdles; they transitioned into ways of being in the world they existed in. Heidegger is a giant and a ghost at the same time, which cannot be redeemed or put to rest –he simply is. Bakewell transitions between them as people and as evolving ideas and depicts the impact of their principles on their personal relationships, and you might find yourself misty eyed at the departures. * I rarely, if ever, want to open up the notes and the references, but with Bakewell seamlessly incorporating texts without making them seem pretentious or like a reading list for a course I actually looked things up to try and read. If you get your hands on this book, which I picked up from @readings.pk (and is also at @thelastwordbks) it’s well worth a read. * #bookstagramofmine #bookgram #readingagain #reads #read #reading #currentread #currentlyreading #justread #bookblog #bookgrammer #bookworm #bookstagram #bookstagrampak #book #bookish #booklove #bookreview #review #greatread #lit #literature #quote #attheexistentialistcafe #sarahbakewell #pakistan #existentialism

Not a bad spot to read about being. * I'm just starting chapter 4 of At the Existentialist Cafe by Sarah Bakewell! * I've missed theory, especially after studying subalternity last semester. Bakewell isn't theory like that, but she allows you to get a glimpse into the history of a particular strains development. * #bookstagramofmime #bookstagram #book #bookworm #bookish #bookgram #sarahbakewell #attheexistentialistcafe #existentialism #cafe #readingspot #currentlyreading #apricot #theory #history #love #booknerd #booklove #bookphotography #read #reading #bookblog #bookstagrampak #pakistan #bookblogger

🏖 Yaz okuma önerisi; Paris, 1933. Üç genç arkadaş, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir ve Raymond Aron, Montparnasse’ta bir barda kayısı kokteyllerini yudumlarken, Aron içkisini göstererek, “Bu kokteyl üzerinden felsefe yapabilirsin!” der. Sartre, bu ilham verici andan yola çıkarak, yaşam –aşk ve tutku, özgürlük ve varoluş, kafeler ve garsonlar, dostluk ve devrim ateşi– hakkındaki kendi sıra dışı felsefesini yaratacaktır. Bu felsefe, Paris’te büyük bir heyecan dalgası yaratıp dünyayı kasıp kavuracak, 1968 öğrenci ayaklanmalarından sivil haklar mücadelesine kadar birçok toplumsal harekete damgasını vuracaktır. New York Times’ın “Yılın Kitabı” seçtiği Varoluşçular Kahvesi, çağdaş varoluşçuluğun hikâyesini insanlar, zihinler ve fikirler arasında kurulan tutkulu bir ilişki olarak anlatıyor.

Found my nose buried in #attheexistentialistcafe while dining at #pacificstandardtime, aptly named as I will be in Chicago less than 24hrs and adjusting to central seems unnecessary. The scene recalled early days of consulting...but the current me adores #heidegger less and #beauvoir more. @jfbar, thanks for the recommendation, it was delish and pours were heavy handed.

Nedir varoluşçuluk? Sonuna kadar özgür olmak mı? Bireyselcilik mi? Kafana estiği gibi mi yaşamak? Ya da hayatın anlamı içinde kendi anlamımızı bulmak mı? Kim ortaya çıkarmış, kim geliştirmiş, kimler katkı yapmış? Alman mı? Fransız mı? Amerika hiç akıllı durmamış mı? Ya kominist Rusya, kibirli İngiltere? Dünya hangi safhalardan geçmiş aşamaları kaydederken, kimler kalmış, kimler yitmiş, hangi dostluklar oluşmuş, hangileri bozulmuş? Kimler niye saf değiştirmiş, var iken hiçliğin ortasına nasıl çekilmiş, kimler aklını yememek için ilaçlara sığınmış, kimler ilaçlara sığınıp aklını yemiş? Savaşlar, yoksulluklar, yeniden doğuşlar, sanayi ve kapitalizm, modernizm ve kalabalık içinde yalnızlık tüm bunları düşünmeden yaşayamazken, komünizmden medet umarken, Marksizm ile varoluşçuluk felsefesini bağdaştırmaya çalışırken, iki büyük güç arasında tarafını seçmek için hangisinin daha soylu olduğunu tartarken, kendi varoluşumuzun anlamını da sorgulayabildiysek ne mutlu bize. Dünyada aynı anda birden fazla grup dezavantajlı duruma düşebilir, peki ya onların talepleri birbirleriyle bağdaşmadığında ne olacaktır? (Kitaptan) 2. Dünya savaşında anti-semitizm karşıtı olurken, savaş sonrası Müslüman Fransız sömürgelerinin direnişinin yanında olmak insanlık için ne derece çelişir? Çelişir mi gerçekten? Çeliştiğini düşünen insanların varoluş amacı diğer insanların varoluş amacıyla çelişmiyor mu? Kayısı kokteyli deyip hafife almayın, varoluşçuluk adına okuyabileceğiniz, zemininde ne yattığına çok iyi odaklanabileceğiniz bir kitap. Husserl, Heidegger’den; Sartre ve Beauvoir’a; Camus’dan Merleau-Ponty’e ve daha nicelerine uzanan varoluş yolculuğunda ben kokteylimi Camus ve Merleau-Ponty ile içmeye karar verdim. Bakalım siz kimlerle içersiniz. Bu kitap sonrası dileğim Martin Heidegger’in “Varlık ve Zaman” kitabının iyi bir çeviri ile yeniden basılması. Bu arada çeviri demişken, çevirmen Emre Gözgü’nün hakkını vermek isterim. Çok iyi bir çeviri idi. Bu güzel kitap için emeği geçen herkese teşekkürler. Varoluşçuluk Felsefesi’ne meraklı iseniz mutlaka. Ya da yakın tarihimizdeki anlamsızlıkların anlam arayışımızı nasıl değiştirdiğini öğrenmek istiyorsanız. Tavsiyemdir.

#repost @fontepsikoloji Varoluşçuluk ve kayısı kokteylleri mi?!🤔 Bunlar aynı cümlede görmeyi asla beklemediğim şeylerdi. 🍹 Varoluşçular Kahvesi, Varoluşçuluk alanındaki birçok kitabın aksine (şüphe uyandıracak derecede) albenili, şaşırtıcı ve renkli bir kapağa sahipti. “Bayım, Ne Korkunç Şey Şu Varoluşçuluk!” başlığını görür görmez yüzümde bir gülümsemeyle kitabı sepete attım ve başladıktan sonra saatlerce elimden bırakamadım. 🍹
Kitap; Fenomenolojiyle, Varoluşçulukla ilgilenmiş birçok düşünürün fikirleriyle dolu ama hiçbirini derinlemesine anlatmıyor. Bütün bu fikirlerin ortaya çıktığı ortamın, zamanın bir haritasını çiziyor. Biri Almanya'da bir fikri ortaya atarken bir başkasının Fransa'da çoktan bu fikrin taslağını yazmış olduğunu, heyecanla aynı fikirden etkilenip yola çıkan hoca ve öğrencilerin yıllar içinde nasıl ayrı düştüğünü, savaş sırasında oradan oraya zar zor taşınan önemli kaynakların macerasını ve daha bir sürü merak uyandırıcı hikayeyi magazinsel detaylarla ve esprili bir dille anlatıyor. Bir süre sonra kendinizi olayların içine dalmış, heyecanla sonraki bölüme geçerken buluyorsunuz. 🍹
Husserl'in, ölümünden sonra akademik mirasının başına geçip fikirlerini devam ettireceğini hayal ettiği Heideggerle yolları nasıl ve neden ayrı düşmüş🤔?
Sartre ve Beauvoir'in ilişkisi nasıl yıllarca sürmüş🤔? Hepsinin cevabı bu kitapta! 🍹
Varoluşçular Kahvesi, "yeni başlayanlar için varoluşçuluk" tadında bir ısındırma kitabı! 3. fotoğraftaki kıvırcık saçlı bebek kim derseniz, kendisi henüz kayısı kokteyli içmek için yaşı tutmayan Sartre👶🏼 Keyifli okumalar! . . . . . . . #uzman #psikolog #gökçenazkamar #fontekitapöneriyor #kitap #kitaptavsiye #bookstagram #fontepsikoloji #birtutamvaroluşçuluk #varoluşçularkahvesi #simonedebeauvoir #sarahbakewell #psikoterapi #varoluşçuluk #attheexistentialistcafe #sartre #simonedebauvoir #kitaplariyikivar #existentialism #photooftheday
