Existential Literature 1st Edition

Linda E. Patrik

  • Published
  • 208 Pages

Overview

This anthology with introductions presents the major figures of existentialism, including Dostoyevsky, Sartre, Beauvoir, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche, through their literary rather than philosophical writings. This approach makes for an anthology that captures students' attention and helps them to understand the philosophers' views. Each selection includes an introduction that provides philosophical background, a section on the basic existential concepts covered in the reading, and insightful study questions.

Linda E. Patrik, Union College
