Synopses & Reviews
In this popular, highly readable survey, Mary Warnock considers the contributions made to Existentialism by Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Husserl, and discusses at length the works of Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, and Sartre. This revised edition includes a postscript reviewing the status of Existentialism in the 1990s and has a thoroughly updated bibliography.
"Deserves praise on several counts. In the first place, Mrs. Warnock writes from a position of some philosophical detachment towards the thinkers whose work she expounds....yet she also displays an imaginative sympathy with their aims and ideas which makes her criticisms of their work all the more worthy of attention."--Times Literary Supplement
