THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING
Challenging Friedrich Nietzsche’s concept of enternal recurrence (the universe and its events have already occurred and will recur ad infinitum), the story’s thematic meditations posit the alternative that each person has only one life to live, and that which occurs in that life, occurs only once shall never occur again — thus the “lightness” of being; whereas eternal recurrence is the “heaviness” threatening the meaning of said life.
This book is the essence of life, death and the causes that control us.
A bible to those deep in trouble.
