My summer reading program surrond "philosophy of mind" books. That reading took me into several readings on Phenomenology and existential philsophers, which led to this book. It is very informative and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in Phenomenology and Extentialism. I have let this book take me to several philosphers from Husserl and those who followed him. Again, this is a really good book that is very informative and contains the information I needed to continue with my summer reeading program.

This companion gives the philosophy student an extensive understanding of existentialism and phenomenology but is more valuable to one in graduate school
