Absurd, precise and hilarious – two masters of acerbity in one book!
Mahler illustrates Liessmann in a book of intellectual entertainment for present and future friends – and enemies.
Using discernment instead of data, discussions instead of diagrams, culture instead of cultural denial: Konrad Paul Liessmann is currently the most accomplished lawyer concerning everything to do with education and knowledge. His sharp analysis, provocative arguments and polished rhetoric focus on burning issues for people, and therefore also for politics. His texts are a gift for the ideally-matched cartoonist and illustrator Nicolas Mahler. After illustrating works by Marcel Proust, Robert Musil and Thomas Bernhard, Mahler now takes on Konrad Paul Liessmann’s world of ideas in a literal way, but in keeping with the original text – in other words: absurdly, precisely and hilariously.
