Existentialism : from Dostoevsky to Sartre by Walter Kaufmann( Book )

120 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 3,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existentialism is perhaps the most misunderstood of modern philosophic positions-- misunderstood by reason of its broad popularity and general unfamiliarity with its origins, representatives, and principles. Existential thinking did not originate with Jean Paul Sartre. It has prior religious, literary, and philosophic origins. In its narrowest formulation it is a metaphysical doctrine, arguing as it does that any definition of man's essence must follow, not precede, an estimation of his existence. In Heidegger, it affords a view of Being in its totality; in Kierkegaard, an approach to that inwardness indispensable to authentic religious experience; for Dostoevsky, Kafka, and Rilke the existential situation bears the stamp of modern man's alienation, uprootedness, and absurdity; to Sartre it has vast ethical and political implications. This book contains only complete selections or entire works by the major thinkers.--From publisher description

A landmark work of philosophy and of literature, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is the fullest expression of Nietzche's belief that "the object of mankind should lie in its highest individuals." In his thirtieth year Zarathustra - the archetypal Ubermensch representative of supreme passion and creativity - abandons his home for the mountains, where he lives, literally and figuratively, on a level of experience far above the conventional standards of good and evil. The exuberant, poetic testimony of Nietzsche's great messianic hero (and alter ego) is a vivid demonstration of the philosopher's genius. Walter Kaufmann's celebrated translation - hailed by Newsweek for its "incandescent splendor of language"--Has gained general recognition as the most authoritative version of Zarathustra existing in English

The problems of today's system of higher education are evaluated by exploring the failure of colleges and universities to truly educate to cope with our changing world and by explaining why the prospects for doctoral graduates in the arts and humanities are dismal. After analyzing four kinds of minds, the author shows in detail what is wrong with the ways the classics are read; discusses book reviewing, translating, and editing; looks at the place of religion in higher education; and looks at curricula. The primary focus is on "humanity" in education. (Mse)
