Bringing together a team of leading international scholars, this is an accessibly one volume reference guide to the latest research and future directions in Existentialism. The Continuum Companion to Existentialism offers the definitive guide to a key area of modern European phil...osophy. The book covers all the fundamental questions asked by existentialism - areas that have continued to attract interest historically as well as topics that have emerged more recently as active areas of research. Eighteen specially commissioned essays from an international team of experts reveal where important work continues to be done in the area and, most valuably, the exciting new directions the field is taking. The Companion explores issues pertaining to the intersection between existentialism and ontology / metaphysics, politics, psychoanalysis, ethics, religion, aesthetics, sexuality, emotion, cognitive science and post structuralism, as well as including full coverage of the key existential thinkers. Featuring a series of indispensable research tools, including an A to Z of key terms and concepts, a chronology, a detailed list of resources and a fully annotated bibliography, this is the essential reference tool for anyone working in existentialism or modern European philosophy more generally. The Continuum Companions series is a major series of single volume companions to key research fields in the humanities aimed at postgraduate students, scholars and libraries. Each companion offers a comprehensive reference resource giving an overview of key topics, research areas, new directions and a manageable guide to beginning or developing research in the field. A distinctive feature of the series is that each companion provides practical guidance on advanced study and research in the field, including research methods and subject-specific resources.
