Beskrivelse

What does it mean to be a man? While this is a key question for at least half the popula-tion of the world, Ole Bjerg argues that it has been largely forgotten by philosophy. In his groundbreaking new book, he mobilizes ideas from Martin Heidegger and Hannah Ar-endt to coin the notion of Being-Man as an alternative to the conventional talk about gender and identity. This leads into an exploration of love, sex, work, art, truth, father-hood, women, and other existential issues confronting men in our efforts to make sense of ourselves and our lives today.The Meaning of Being a Man may be read by anyone, but it is explicitly written for men who are discontented with contemporary academic debates about men and women and yet still believe that philosophy has something valuable to say on these matters.Ole Bjerg (b. 1974) is an Associate Professor in Philosophy and Economics at the Copenhagen Business School. A list of previous books in English include Parallax of Growth (Polity Press 2016), Making Money (Verso 2014) and Poker: The Parody of Capitalism (University of Michigan Press 2011).
