"In this Very Short Introduction Thomas R. Flynn examines the philosophy at the core of the movement, providing a clear and accessible account of what existentialism really means. He focuses on several key existential themes, and along the way introduces the leading existentialist thinkers, from Kierkegaard and Nietzsche to Sartre and de Beauvoir."--BOOK JACKET.
