Summary

Introducing students to existentialist philosophy through the writings of Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, De Beauvoir and others, this unique anthology includes long selections from a relatively small number of existentialist thinkers exploring each philosopher's views in great detail, and prefacing the essays with insightful introductions to help clarify material and aid in student comprehension.

Features

  • Provides in-depth essays from select existentialist figures to allow a fuller view of each philosopher considered.
  • Offers creative, explicative chapter introductions to help students grasp material to be covered.
  • Illustrates existentialist philosophy in literature with Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit, and Albert Camus' The Stranger.
  • Includes practical end-of-chapter glossaries to help students with technical terms and unfamiliar jargon.
  • Now presents thought-provoking study/discussion questions at the end of each introduction, as well as an updated bibliography.
