Nein. A Manifesto is the brainchild of Eric Jarosinski, the self-described “failed highbrow” at the back of the highly well known @NeinQuarterly, a “Compendium of Utopian Negation” that makes use of the aphoristic strength of Twitter to plumb the existential abyss of recent life—and reveals it bottomless.

Stridently hopeless and charmingly dour, Nein. A Manifesto is an irreverent philosophical research into our so much pressing questions. And the least. encouraged by way of the aphorisms of Nietzsche, Karl Kraus, Walter Benjamin, and Theodor W. Adorno, Jarosinski’s short-form kind reinvents philosophy for a global doomed to distraction.

Nein. A Manifesto might be packaged as an enticing small-format hardcover, with a handful of Jarosinski’s aphorisms laid out on each one web page. serious thinkers, fans of language, bibliophiles, manics and depressives alike should be interested in this compelling, witty, and infrequently hilarious translation of electronic into print. thought into praxis. And tragedy into farce.
