Synopsis: Utilizing recently published primary sources, David Cooper aims to provide an account of the mainstream movement of philosophical thought, reconstructed from the writings of Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty and others. Existentialism is viewed as the attempt to overcome various forms of alienation: from the world, one another and oneself. The early chapters describe the existential phenomenolgy, on the basis of which the dualisms of Cartesian metaphysics are "dissolved".
