Estou estupefato, que livro, que reflexão, o maior contraponto as teses freudianas que já existiu, um judeu que de fato sofreu contando suas experiências provando que mesmo no mais hostil dos ambientes é possível se alcançar a santidade.

Just Another Book Diary (2023) (176 books items)

"26.12. I didn't eve know this book existed until today. It's just the kind of heavy dose of Existentialism I needed right now, I just read Dostoyevsky and Nietzsche and some others, so this takes off just where those ones ended."
