Does life have meaning? Can values exist if God does not? In this course, students consider the works of central existentialist figures such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Sartre and Camus as well as related literary works. Students explore themes such as authentic existence, freedom, nihilism, meaning, subjectivity and values. The course is both an introduction to this body of work and an attempt to raise individual awareness of the human condition within which our existence takes place.
