This is an introductory course examining some key existentialist thinkers' work. We'll be looking at Fear and Trembling and Either/Or by the Danish 19th Century thinker Søren Kierkegaard, selections from the work of Friedrich Nietzsche, including The Birth of Tragedy, and The Genealogy of Morals, and Jean-Paul Sartre's Existentialism is a Humanism and parts of his Being and Nothingness. No prior knowledge of philosophy is assumed or necessary. I'll make suggestions for further reading/listening after each session.
