This book offers a brief introduction to the thought of four figures central to existential philosophy--Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Sartre. An introductory chapter presents the basic perspective and concerns of existentialism, and describes its place in the history of philosophy. Similar introductions are provided for each of the four philosophers, followed by selections from their major works. Background readings are also excerpted from works by Hegel and Husserl.
