A quick short (as the title eludes to) summary of existentialism up until Sartre. Not covering the absurdism realm of it (Camus, etc.), but primarily relying on Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Hegel, Sartre, and a bit on Husserl. Not a bad brief summary, but a bit too laden with the technical and verbose and jargon of philosophy and not much in the way for the layman. And knowing extensively on existentialism and finding this just primarily covering things I already knew, I found my mind wandering more than need be. The 'debate' at the end of the book was interesting, and possibly the best part of the work. ( )
