Existentialist Philosophy

Fall 2008

Professor: P.D. Magnus

A central existentialist idea is that individuals as human beings are caught between the particular stages of their lives and themselves as existing across time - in tension between being what they are and becoming what they will be. The course explores this theme through the works of Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Simone de Beauvoir.
