    One thought on “Existentialism”

    1. I really enjoyed this collection of excerpts from existentialist writings. I liked that it opened my eyes to the different kind of thinkers within this tradition: liked some, loathed some. It gathered from about 26 writers from Kierkegaard to Arthur Miller, and concentrated more heavily on the more well-known contributors like Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Camus, and Sartre. I came to this book having read some from this philosophical emphasis, but I wasn’t disappointed in the selections [...]

    2. This was an optional reader for a class that I took with the late Robert Solomon. All royalties went to the keg fund for a party that he threw for his students. It's a tiny little book, but it has breadth; besides the obvious and indispensable inclusions, like Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Kafka, Sartre, and Camus, there are selections from Merleau-Ponty, Buber, Pinter, Beckett, and even Barth. Oh yeah -- if you like Hesse, then get your motor running, because he's in here, too.Among the major selecti [...]

    3. an anthology, suitable for an undergraduate course on what is one of the worst philosophical schools ever.

    4. Great selection on existentialism. I studied this book in college, and went back and re read it a few years ago. I still find existentialism fascinating and recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more.

    5. "A book not recommended for beginners"Having taken an interest in existentialism and having read a few books on the topic, I thought I could not miss this compilation with Robert C. Solomon, a prolific author in philosophy books and a professor of Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin, as the author. The introduction was a surprise that it read like a sarcastic and hostile attack to existentialism. I imagined that it would also appear cryptic to readers that have yet read of the philos [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this and the existentialism class I read it for, but it just wasn't an amazing anthology. It had short introductions to each philosopher that didn't give you enough, I didn't think, to understand what you were getting into in the reading, and then rather short selections for all but Sartre. It's great if you want to read some short segments of major existentialist philosophers, but I just don't think it would be an anthology I would ever return to after moving on to the full wor [...]

    7. This book has introduced me to Existentialism and now I really want to learn more. I have enjoyed the thoughts posed about individualism, that we are choosers, "bad faith", seeing ourselves in the eyes of the other. I have come to many conclusions about how people are objectifying one another. It has expanded my understanding about love and life. I have decided to become more individualistic in my religious practices as well as my social interactions. I am going to read more existentialism this [...]

    8. This book is badass! The introductions to the excerpts in this existential philosophy primer are what really make book worthwhile. After I read this, I got really excited because I knew that Solomon was the head of the Philosophy Dept. at UT. I was really stoked to sit in on some classes. However, I then found out that he died two years ago. Bummer.

    9. I thought it was a good introduction to existentialismbut I'm no judge. Judging by Solomon's credentials though, he seems to know what he's doing; although I'm not a huge fan of anthologies. It's like someone's judging what's essential versus what isn't on these highly complex thinkers. Not critical though. Still a great introduction.

    10. To be fair, my love for this book is based on my love for Dr. Solomon's Existentialism class that I took in college. It's not necessarily a weekend read, especially the Heidegger excerpts. I actually would recommend checking out the audio for his lectures if you are not used to reading philisophical texts.

    11. A selection of representative works from existentialism's philosophers, both the renowned (Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Sartre, etc) and the less well-known (Karl Jaspers, de Unamuno, etc). May be a bit daunting for the first-time reader introduced to existentialism. Good breadth, though.

    12. Trapped on a desert Island this small book would provide a library of existentialist material , nicely organized and the introduction by Solomon is great
