The author presents a new existential interpretation of Nietzsche.

In this profound and moving philosophical statement, Camus poses the fundamental question: Is life worth living? If human existence holds no significance, what can keep us from suicide? As Camus argues, if there is no God to give meaning to our lives, humans must take on that purpose themselves. This is our 'absurd' task, like Sisyphus forever rolling... more...

Giving particular consideration... more...

Instead of focusing upon a particular aspect of human existence, existentialists argued that our focus must be upon the whole being as he/she exists in the world. Rebelling against the rationalism of such philosophers as Descartes and Hegel, existentialists reject the emphasis placed... more...

What is the relationship between perception and perceptual judgment? Does it involve sensual content that cannot be expressed verbally, or is it verbal structures that first allow us to recognize something? Both positions engender discomfort. In this systematically conceived examination grounded in the history of philosophy, Nolte uncovers the dogma... more...

"Why I so much prefer autumn to spring is that in the autumn one looks at heaven--in the spring at the earth."--Søren Kierkegaard The father of existentialism, Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was a philosopher who could write like an angel.
