Andrew Cutrofello’s book All for Nothing: Hamlet’s Negativity has recently been published in Slovenian translation by Marija Zlatnar Moe (Analecta). The emblematic statements: Hamlet’s to be or not to be and Descartes’ cogito, ergo sum, can be juxtaposed at the beginning of modern age. What kind of associations can be found between them? A heretofore most exhaustive study into references to Shakespeare's tragedy, Andrew Cutrofell’s book charts allusions to and uses of Hamlet in early modern and modern philosophers.
