The Free Market Existentialist by William Irwin is the kind of book you might discuss in a college classroom. For me its been a long time since I’ve seen the inside of a school. In fact I didn’t do well in philosophy and economics so I wasn’t so sure I would fully understand the book. In all honesty I didn’t understand every concept in the book but I did get a lot out of it.

In this book William Irwin looks at three different ideas: Sartre’s existentialism is a better fit with capitalism than with Marxism, that we need to go beyond the “final delusion” of objective morality, and that libertarian political theory should be put into practice. Irwin describes ideas that don’t seem like they would work together and describes why they can work together. There are a lot of ideas in this book and Irwin takes the time to explain everything so anyone can understand it and come up with ideas of their own.

The Free Market Existentialist is a book that will make you look at life differently. Irwin questions everything in this book and his goal seems to be to get his readers to question things in their world also. I personally loved his idea that you can be an existentialist and a capitalist. It is up to the person to make choices for himself what he chooses to buy. Existentialists don’t join groups to buy things in mass but they think there should be many choices for people. They want to have a free market for people to make money, but they won’t blindly spend their money like others do. If you have a love of philosophy and economics you will enjoy this book. ( )
