  • Where do we come from Are we merely a cluster of elementary particles in a gigantic world receptacle And what does it all mean In this highly original new book, the philosopher Markus Gabriel challenges our notion of what exists and what it means to exist He questions the idea that there is a world that encompasses everything like a container life, the universe, and evWhere do we come from Are we merely a cluster of elementary particles in a gigantic world receptacle And what does it all mean In this highly original new book, the philosopher Markus Gabriel challenges our notion of what exists and what it means to exist He questions the idea that there is a world that encompasses everything like a container life, the universe, and everything else This all inclusive being does not exist and cannot exist For the world itself is not found in the world And even when we think about the world, the world about which we think is obviously not identical with the world in which we think For, as we are thinking about the world, this is only a very small event in the world Besides this, there are still innumerable other objects and events rain showers, toothaches and the World Cup Drawing on the recent history of philosophy, Gabriel asserts that the world cannot exist at all, because it is not found in the world Yet with the exception of the world, everything else exists even unicorns on the far side of the moon wearing police uniforms Revelling in witty thought experiments, word play, and the courage of provocation, Markus Gabriel demonstrates the necessity of a questioning mind and the role that humour can play in coming to terms with the abyss of human existence.

    One thought on “Why the World Does Not Exist”

    1. This is a pretty demanding book. It's written with wit and in a rather engaging style, but it's still a tough intellectual work-out. On the whole I think it's worth the effort, but it's not an unmitigated intellectual treat by any means.I am not a philosopher, although I have studied Philosophy of Science and it's an interest which I have kept up. Markus Gabriel makes a decent stab at moving on from the sort of postmodern nonsense we've been subjected to of "our internal view of the world cannot [...]

    2. Auf dem Umschlag steht: "ein großartige Gedankenübung!"Genau das ist es. Herr Gabriel erklärt, warum es die Welt nicht gibt, aber warum es trotzdem alles andere gibt.Neue Erkenntnisse hat mir die Lektüre nicht verschafft, aber immerhin wurde ich gut unterhalten und der Autor scheint ein sehr sympathischer Mensch mit gutem Filmgeschmack zu sein.

    3. Eine neuer Blick auf die Welt, die es als ein Allesumfassendes nicht gibt und genau das eröffnet unzählige neue Perspektiven, von denen jede seine Wahrheit in seinem Gegenstandbereich hat.Ein erfrischender Standpunkt gegen, den, von den meisten längst verinnerlichten, Wissenschaftsdogmatismus. Vor allem in der Ausprägung des Reduktionismus (wir sind nur Elementarteilchen im Universum). Wer dies glaubt, der hat seine Seele verkauft und sich selbst zur Fleischmaschine gemacht. Auch wenn ich ni [...]

    4. A fairly good introduction into Markus Gabriel version of new realism philosophy. Clearly articulated and comprehensible to someone who’s not philosophically trained. The discussions on good religions are interesting. In the closing chapter, he suggests the potentially of “quality” TV series. This is especially relevant today when Netflix series have somehow keeping us from going to cinemas. It’s worth a separate thorough discussion.

    5. Trapped in self-reflectionThis is a truly an amazing little book that surveys quite a bit of philosophical thought over the past 200 years or so. The thesis is that the world does not exist and believe it or not a convincing argument is posited. However, what is really proved indisputably is the limitations and inadequacy of human thought, of which actually philosophy is entirely constructed. Still a profoundly interesting read with many insights.

    6. Dit is stevige kost voor een niet-filosoof. Elke poging van mijn kant een filosoof samen te vatten is nutteloos, daarom alleen mijn reflectie. De wereld bestaat inderdaad niet, MG heeft gelijk. In 200 pagina's legt hij toch redelijk begrijpelijk uit wat hiermee bedoeld wordt, met behulp van goede stellingnames zoals dat de natuurkunde 'maar' een objectgebied is (en dat natuurkundigen daarom niet moeten doen alsof ze alles kunnen verklaren en hun universum alles omvat) en dat constructivisten eig [...]

    7. Three stars because the author is gifted when it comes to writing and I adore the topic, thinking about the fundamental ontology of the world.However, in my humble opinion, the book and the reasoning reveals not only fundamental ontology but also fundamental weaknesses. I think the author lacks, matching his academic background, knowledge about (or appreciation for, I do not know) the natural sciences e.g. general relativity, quantum physics but also system theory and complexity science. All the [...]

    8. Af en toe had ik het gevoel dat Gabriel aan semantische spelletjes deed, waarbij hij de lezer op het verkeerde been zette. Aan het eind van het boek worden de dingen toch wel wat duidelijker en is zijn visie op humor en fantasie een welkome verademing. Een pittig boek waar je niet snel doorheen komt, maar dat wel de moeite waard is.

    9. Livre très divertissant et intéressant, brillant même, dans la lignée de Meillassoux mais plus pop. Un peu difficile de se faire une idée sans l'armement intellectuel et philosophique nécessaire - vague impression de poudre aux yeux? Un livre qui donne envie de lire ensuite ses critiques.

    10. Cet essais nous renseigne clairement sur la non-existence du monde. Si ce n'était pas de certains concepts mal définies en philosophie et quelques références culturelles très spécifiques, je recommanderais ce livre au Cégep.

    11. My philosophy teacher made us read this book in class and I couldn't understand every part of it. I tried, but I may improve my philosophy's knowledge to fully comprehend it.
