Philosophy: The Mystique of Existentialism

Existentialism was one of the most influential intellectual movements of the 20th century, surging from its 19th century Kierkegaardian foundations in reaction against the experience of Nazi domination and occupation.  In this workshop we will look of some of its exponents, including Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and Albert Camus, who have left a rich literary and philosophical legacy.
