How many playwrights, novelists, philosophers, artists, composers, performers, filmmakers, and critical thinkers influenced Samuel Beckett? And how profound has Beckett’s impact been on creative artists worldwide, who have responded to the stimulus of his work using every available medium, from theatre and television, through opera and contemporary art, to the internet and virtual reality?
This book may serve as an example of this effort. Edited and produced in close cooperation with the Faculty of Humanities of Károli Gáspár University, Budapest, and the Hungarian and German National Associations for Supervision and Coaching (MSZCT, DGSv), it offers relevant research reports by 22 scholars from all over Europe. Its aim is to inspire practitioners as much as researchers have been - and are - inspired by them.

It examines the material basis of what allows us to maintain knowledge in a vital form.
