First published in 1990, Existentialism: A Reconstruction is widely regarded as a classic introductory survey of the topic, and has helped to renew interest in existentialist philosophy. Utilizing recently published primary sources, Cooper provides a sympathetic, original account of a mainstream movement of philosophical thought, reconstructed from the best writing of Heideger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty and others. Existentialism is viewed as the attempt to 'overcome' various forms of alienation: from the world, one another and oneself. Writers discussed include Husserl, Jaspers, Buber, Marcel and Ortega. The author places existentialism within the great traditions of philosophy, and argues that it deserves as much attention from analytic philosophers as it has always received on the continent.
