Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Existentialism pervades modern culture, yet if you ask most people what it means, they wont be able to tell you. In this lively and topical introduction, Wartenberg reveals a vibrant mode of philosophical inquiry that addresses concerns at the heart of the existence of every human being. Wartenberg uses classic films, novels, and plays to present the ideas of now-legendary Existentialist thinkers from Nietzsche and Camus to Sartre and Heidegger and to explore central concepts, including Freedom, Anxiety, and the Absurd. Special attention is paid to the views of Simone de Beauvoir and Franz Fanon, who use the theories of Existentialism to address gender and colonial oppression.

Synopsis:

Existentialism is one of few philosophical terms that pervades modern culture, cropping up in movies such as the Matrix and Fight Club, and yet most people don't really know exactly what it means. Using key concepts--including Freedom and the Absurd--Wartenberg clearly presents the ideas of legendary thinkers to a general modern audience.
