Summary

Father of existentialism or the Eeyore of philosophy?
 
Known as the first modern theologian, Søren
Kierkegaard was a prolific writer of the Danish ‘golden age’. A philosopher,
poet and social critic, his key concepts of angst, despair, and the
importance of the individual, influenced many 20th-century philosophers and
literature throughout Europe.
 
Dave Robinson and Oscar Zarate’s brilliant graphic
guide explains what Kierkegaard means by 'anti-philosophy', and tells an
illuminating story of the strange life and ideas of a man tortured by his
attempts to change the very priorities of Western thought.

    About the Novel: 
     
    The Hundred Dresses is a Newbery Honor winning story about a young girl who is teased and mocked by her classmates. Wanda Petronski is different from the rest of the children in her class. She is poor and friendless, and is seated in the worse seat in the classroom. Constantly teased and mocked by her classmates for wearing the same faded blue dress every day, Wanda claims to own 100 dresses. This obvious lie causes her peers to mock her even more, resulting in her father's decision to move her to a different school. Before she leaves, she enters a drawing contest where she designs 100 different dresses. She moves away before realizing she has won the contest and the respect of her classmates.
