This lecture course examines the intellectual history of existentialism through specific works of literature, film, and philosophy. By reading works of philosophy and literature by figures such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Kafka, and Dostoevsky, as well as viewing films such as THE THIRD MAN, BREATHLESS, and FIGHT CLUB, we will provide an introduction into the key attributes and questions that characterize existential philosophy as well as the historical circumstances that inform its distinct incarnations.
