Overview

Existentialism, 2/e, offers an exceptional and accessible introduction to the richness and diversity of existentialist thought. Retaining the focus of the highly successful first edition, the second edition provides extensive material on the "big four" existentialists—Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Sartre—while also including selections from twenty-four other authors. Giving readers a sense of the variety of existentialist thought around the world, this edition also adds new readings by such figures as Luis Borges, Viktor Frankl, Gabriel Garcia Márquez, Keiji Nishitani, and Rainer Maria Rilke.

Existentialism, 2/e, also features:
* New translations of Kierkegaard, Heidegger, and Buber
* More extensive selections from Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Sartre
* New selections by Hazel E. Barnes, Miguel de Unamuno, Joseph Heller, Philip Roth, and Colin Wilson
* The Grand Inquisitor (from Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov)

Ideal for undergraduate courses in existentialism and Continental philosophy, Existentialism, 2/e, is fascinating reading for anyone interested in the subject.
