Existentialism is a demanding topic, so some people may not want to listen to this production while driving. But those who want an introduction to the philosophy of existentialism couldn't make a better choice. This brief book looks at the tenets of this philosophy, its proponents, and its history. Narrator Jay Snyder's slow reading, which would be inappropriate for many other books, works well here. This is a book that requires close attention, and the slow pace lets listeners more easily digest and reflect upon the ideas presented. But the dense work assumes a background in philosophy, so listeners who are merely curious may be at a disadvantage. K.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2010]
