Existentialism, Second Edition concentrates on the "big four" existentialists - Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Sartre - while providing a strong sense of the breadth and variety of existentialist thought.
In this edition, Solomon provides new translations of Kierkegaard, even more extensive Heidegger and Sartre selections, and a bit more Nietzsche.
He retains a sense of the rich variety of existentialist thought and writing by adding such world figures as Miguel de Unamuno, Rainer Marie Rilke, Luis Borges, Gabriel Marquez, Keiji Nishitani, Milan Kundera, and a scene from one particularly existentialist film screenplay, Casablanca.
In addition, there are new selections from Hazel Barnes, Colin Wilson, and Fyodor Dostoevsky's Brothers Karamazov.
The resulting volume is an excellent introduction to the richness of existentialist thought and an outstanding sourcebook for the classic existentialist thought and an outstanding sourcebook for the classic existentialist texts.
