Heidegger and modern existentialism
Examines the basic theory of existentialism as founded by Martin Heidegger, and later propagated by Jean-Paul Sartre. Barrett discusses Heidegger's notions of being, existence as task, cosmic roots, and alienation. Sartre's concept of absolute human freedom is discussed as having promoted human dignity and individualism in the impersonal modern society.
