This course examines the tradition of Existentialism by looking to both its foundations and its innovations. Most well-known through Sartres statement that existence precedes essence, the existentialist movement flourished during the twentieth century in France with thinkers such as Sartre, Camus, Beauvoir, and Fanon. It continues to have great relevance today, structuring our every-day discourses about identity, the meaning of life, and interpersonal relationships. By engaging with the German and French traditions, from Hegel through to Irigaray, this course provides a comprehensive introduction to the philosophy of human existence.
