    Abstract

    The Continuum Companion to Existentialism offers the
    definitive guide to a key area of modern European philosophy. The book covers
    the fundamental questions asked by existentialism, providing valuable guidance
    for students and researchers to some of the many important and enduring
    contributions of existentialist thinkers. Specially commissioned essays from an
    international team of experts explore existentialism's relationship to
    philosophical method; ontology; politics; psychoanalysis; ethics; religion;
    literature; emotion; feminism and sexuality; cognitive science; authenticity
    and the self; its significance in Latin American culture; and its contribution
    to the development of Poststructuralism. In addition, five short chapters
    summarise the status of canonical figures Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger,
    Sartre and de Beauvoir, delineating the historical approach to their work,
    while pointing to new directions such research is now taking.
    Companion is an essential tool to help the new reader navigate
    through the heart of Existentialism and modern European philosophy.
