Description

The complete title of the work is as follows: The Meaning of Existentialism: The New Philosophy, Founded by Sartre, That Has Made Quick Progress Among the Volatile Young Men of Paris' Latin Quarter.

The is quoted from the author's "Preface."

"This is a short account of a system of philosophy which most philosophers entirely ignore, if not despise. That fact will encourage the ordinary reader of books, who looks askance at all systems of philosophy and wonders if it is worth while to fight through the screen of formidable words in which they are clothed, to feel that here he has a chance. He will be further encouraged when he learns that the cradle of the new creed as it is here presented was the most frivolous part of gay Paris, the Latin quarter, and the most enthusiastic devotees of it are the volative young men of that district. He may be further attracted if I say that it is not expounded and discussed in musty class-rooms of gloomy universities but mostly in cafes and restaurants that resound with the  chatter and laughter and are black with the smoke of millions of cigarette or blue with the echoes of naughty jokes and stories. But I must warn him that the founder is a professor of philosophy who maintains that he offers the world at last the crown of 2,000 years of philosophical speculation, a creed of life that will supersede all other creeds and all religions. He is an Atheist and emphatically denies that there is any mysticism in his ideas. He really borrowed his philosophy from a ponderous German professor named Heidegger, and this man got his fundamental ideas, the experts say, from one of the dourest, if not sourest, Danish divines of the last century. How an Epicurean creed was born of such ancestry it may be interesting to read, and how, although it beats Hegel in the intricacy; if not nebulosity, of its pattern of words, it fires the enthusiasm of the gayest crowd that ever followed a philosopher certainly adds to its piquancy."
