Description

A fascinating philosophical-literary reflection,

inviting us to examine the priorities in our own lives.


What do we think about real life? About a retreat in untouched nature? About death and immortality? Through the lives of our children? These questions also preoccupy the fictional poet and philosopher Moritz Brandt. His friend Aaron sorts through his estate, coming across diaries and essays in which Brandt reflects on real life. The more he delves into these texts, however, the more frequently Aaron asks himself: Where does the desire to change, to become real, come from? Michael Hampe masterfully links narrative and reflection so that we recognize how the distinction between appearance and reality prevents us from coming to terms with our lives.


Voices on The Wilderness. The Soul. Nothingness. and Michael Hampe:


Hampe's text helps to recognize how the distinction between appearance and reality prevents us from really coming to terms with our lives.
