Philosophy of Existence (Works in Continental Philosophy) by Karl Jaspers,Richard F. Grabau

By Karl Jaspers,Richard F. Grabau

Philosophy of Existence used to be first awarded to the general public as a chain of lectures invited by way of The German Academy of Frankfurt. In getting ready those lectures Jaspers, whom the Nazis had already brushed off from his professorship at Heidelberg, knew that he used to be talking in Germany for the final time. Jaspers used the celebration to provide an account of the cultural and highbrow state of affairs from which existentialism emerged in addition to a precis of his personal philosophy.

The e-book serves 3 reasons this day: it brings the various strands of the existential stream into concentration; it offers an outline of Jaspers's personal philosophical place; and it demonstrates by way of instance that philosophy needn't be irrational, antiscientific, journalistic, or homiletic on the way to be existential and engagé. during this brief publication Jaspers presents a corrective for the preferred view of existentialism as a pessimistic, irrationalist philosophy. He keeps that it really is, fairly a part of mainstream of Western philosophy—the shape that philosophy has taken in our day.
