Maurice Friedman's masterly anthology still stands apart decades after its original publication. It has become established as a classic - the most comprehensive collection of existentialist writing ever assembled. This edition includes a special preface by Professor Friedman surveying the developments in the field since this monumental work was first published and commenting on its relevance for present intellectual trends.

The short selections from important existentialist writers and their forerunners elucidate the critical issues that exist among existentialists. The topics include phenomenology and ontology, the existential subject, intersubjectivity, religion, and psychotherapy.
