According to the author, "Existentialism is not a school of thought nor reducible to any set of tenets. The three writers who appear invariably on every list of 'existentialists' --Jaspers, Heidegger, and Sartre--are not in agreement on essentials. Such alleged precursors as Pascal and Kierkegaard differed from all three men by being dedicated Christians; and Pascal, a Catholic of sorts, while Kierkegaard was a Protestant's Protestant" This volume provides basic writings of Dostoevsky, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Rilke, Kafka, Ortega, Jaspers, Heidegger, Sartre, and Camus, including some not previously translated, along with an invaluable introductory essay by Walter Kaufman.
