Book Description

Great philosophers such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche and Sartre have clearly been preoccupied by the possibility of authenticity. In this study, Jacob Golomb looks closely at the literature and writings of these philosophers in his analysis of their ethics.
Golomb's writings shows his passionate commitment to the quest for the authenticity - particularly in our climate of post-modern scepticism. He argues that existentialism is all the more pertinent and relevant today when set against the general disillusionment which characterises the late twentieth century.
This book is invaluable reading for those who have been fascinated by figures like Camus's Meursault, Sartre's Matthieu and Nietzsche's Zarathustra.

Authenticity as found in the thought of:
Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre, & Camus.
Academic rather than existential,
but an important contribution to the very slim literature on Authenticity.
If these thinkers' versions of Authenticity interest you,
you will want to read this volume.

If you want to read other books on this existential theme,
search the Internet for: "Authenticity Bibliography".

James Leonard Park, existential philosopher
