Introducing Existentialism (Introducing...)

Introducing Existentialism (Introducing...) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pope Pius XII condemned Existentialism for its "terrifying nihilism." Anguish, despair, absurdity, nothingness ... these still have a power to scandalise. Do we find in them the quintessence of Existentialism? Or has Existentialism's truth been eclipsed by its popular appeal? In this book we encounter Camus, Sartre, Kierkegaard, Hegel, Marx and Nietzsche, and always in the background a history of dark times — our legacy of Nazism and the Cold War — over-casting the search. This is a book of undergoing Existentialism. Can it have meaning in our age of postmodern crisis?

Synopsis:

Richard Appignanesi and Oscar Zarate collaborate for the first time since the classic international bestseller 'Introducing Freud', first published in 1979.
