Existentialism: A Beginner's Guide

by Thomas Wartenberg - £9.99  Oneworld Publications (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781851685936 | ISBN 10: 1851685936

Existentialism pervades modern culture, yet if you ask most people what it means, they won’t 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.
