From its roots in the 19th century to its full flowering in the 20th, existentialism has made a profound impression on the course of modern history.

pretty good overview of existentialism, however the choice of heidegger seemed unusual, i get the feeling it was mainly done so as to showcase some nazi eyecandy. would have replaced him w/ dostoyevsky to give a russian perspective instead of a second german one, but otherwise i enjoyed it a lot
