His philosophy also influenced the development of existential psychology. Kierkegaard criticized aspects of the philosophical systems that were brought on by philosophers such as Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel before him and the Danish Hegelians. He was also indirectly influenced by the philosophy of Immanuel Kant.

Philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard

I am a fan of the philosophy courses and some are first class, such as the TLC titles philosophy of … Show Full Review This action will open a modal dialog. I bought this course maybe a decade ago when I had only delved into Nietzsche, so far as Existentialist or proto-existentialist writers go.

My impression at the time was that this course engaged me but left me unclear on what existentialism really is a tough question. Since then I have read Camus and Dosteovsky and have dug into Kierkegaard with more diligence. I have also read Schopenhauer to better appreciate Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, and even myself.

Over the course of this journey I have revisited this "Great Course" with increasing satisfaction, particularly with regard to how it touches upon other philosophers, so while I think this course is an effective introduction, it also works for me at an intermediate level, both as a review and as roadmap by which I can pursue new paths of exploration, for example, what does Kierkegaard mean by self?

Is it truly contextual, or is it also abstract? How does his anxiety relate to Schopenhauer's thought? Was the radical Jesus of the New Testament not the only Jesus in there an existential character in his own right?

I can understand how this course can leave some listeners dissatisfied. I was dissatisfied too, but mine has proved to be a productive dissatisfaction. These lectures are a shallow overview of existentialist thought, and contain biases which devalue the product.

It says Sartre coined the term 'existentialism' when in fact, Sartre gave a famous lecture with that word in the title, but he took term from Heidegger. Solomon declares his personal disgust with Heidegger's support of the Nazi party, but dismisses Sartre's support of Stalin as merely "silly" -a double standard. From this lecture you would mistakenly take away that Sartre best articulated and explored the concepts of existentialism, when in fact they were reactions to Heidegger's fundamentally new and deep philosophical inquiries, terms, and worldview.

This course was a real disappointment. Although I once served as a teaching assistant for a course on Existentialism, doing the readings, attending lectures, leading discussion groups and grading papers, I have always felt Existentialism was a slippery philosophical movement. It's hard to define, as compared with, for example, Rationalism, Empiricism or Utilitarianism. Unfortunately Prof. Solomon didn't nail the concept any better for me.

The best definition I can now give of Existentialism, based on the lectures I heard, is "a mainly European philosophical movement culminating in the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre. Normally I don't pay any attention to the course booklets for Great Courses; I just listen to the lectures. This time I studied the written summaries in the course booklet after each lecture. The outlines there did help me to grasp the professor's main points for each philosopher, but they didn't add up to a running argument for the whole course or illuminate the essence of Existentialism if it has an essence.

With that said, I nevertheless enjoyed listening to the course for Prof. Solomon's take on the various figures discussed. I particularly liked how hard he was on Heidegger for being an unrepentant Nazi. I felt the course was well-organized, with a specific theme for each lecture. Solomon's manner is a bit understated, but he's admirably clear when he explains the views of some notoriously difficult figures such as Hegel, Husserl and Heidegger. He speaks in short sentences and tries to describe easy-to-understand real-life examples to illuminate various abstract concepts.

Much of the time that technique works well. When I read other customers' comments on this course, I was surprised to see that some people apparently expect that a lecturer on philosophy can be as exciting as, say, someone talking about the causes of the Civil War. The subject matter here is difficult, and it's a bit unfair to blame the professor for that, in my opinion! After going through a half dozen lectures, I am reasonably convinced that Professor Solomon has a thorough grasp of the course material.

The unavailability of the course reading matter in my locale makes any deeper analysis impossible. For me, this was a game-changer. It was all-practical. I listened to it, went through it again immediately afterward, and found myself changed. The changes, it appears, are both permanent and beneficial.

For me, the offering is remarkably evoking and insightful, with strong caveats. The European Existential non-humanistic heritage that emphasizes ethics as "integrity" and personal choice, trying to bring the best subjective passion to personal choice, is made convincing and essential. The problem is that the word "self- actualization" is used only once, and to miss Rogers, Maslow, May, Watts, and the host of American "humanist" thinkers not referred to until the last lecture that in my mind displaced the convoluted and difficult European tradition, is unfortunate.

The various European philosophers were Nazis, defenders of the worst Stalinist nightmares not only in Russia, but also the various European and Cuban nightmares , passionate defenders of mass religious authority despite denials of that.

To find a convincing idea of personal choice with integrity is a tough sell here; real tough. But it is achieved, and many of the ideas fit in a consideration of personal ethical choice. The offering achieves its stated purpose, to explain the "philosophical art" of Existentialism even if it resembles a Rauschenberg collage. The explanation is "attitudes", expressions, and views that for me serve as the basis of modern working ethics for personal life without fulfillment.

The path is opened, but not taken, to more modern humanistic vantages needed for business and government. Solomon's book "Existentialism" is not only a great European philosophical foundation comparison, but also a great comparative literary compendium, and well worth acquiring.

Still, a warning would be that most of the selections are ironic, critical, comic, absurd, downbeat; Solomon would prefer Camus, Kafka, Dostoyevsky, and Hesse at his most paranoid rather than "Siddhartha".

My favorites, Paul Tillich and Viktor Frankl, have all too few companions for the "courage to be" needed to do innovative, fulfilling, and profitable things in the face of uncertainty and failure. I encountered "Existentialism" as an undergrad, as an Operation Research Management major. Took the course as lots of my young readings included Camus, Kafka, and Hesse, and I was interested in the philosophical foundation my advisors recommended. I was taking grad courses that invited "humanistic" speakers I think Colin Wilson was among them.

Solomon is a Prof of "Business and Philosophy", without actual experience; and has also authored various "ethics of business" books which I do not recommend. My caveat is that this offering serves as a strong basis for personal ethics, but misses the "self- actualization" humanistic fulfillment part so necessary for modern management at any level in any venue.

Enjoy, but beware. Moshen- Sartre was a Stalinist supporter, and ignored the communist nightmare atrocities. Please next time, read it ALL!

Heidegger yes, but Sartre most definitely not. That was explicitly discussed in the course. I am half way through the program and love it. So much of Existentialism fits todays world. I recommended the program to my brother-in-law. Robert Solomon really needs no introduction as a professor. I'm thrilled to be able to learn about existentialism from such a great teacher. This course is is kind of an in-depth survey. Meaning each lesson goes into some detail on the life of the author and the main ideas of certain texts.

If you have time, read the texts ahead of time so you really know what he's referencing. But even if you don't have the time to do so, the lectures are insightful and illuminating. Does this course have significant visual content, or is it fully understandable via the audio version only?

Having just completed this course, I found audio alone entirely sufficient. No need for any visuals. This is an older course, so the video is mostly of the professor lecturing. You will not miss any content if you do the audio version.

The course guidebook will have a bibliography and list of recommended readings in it. In addition to that, once you purchase the course, the course starter materials will be loaded into your Digital Library.

Those materials will have some references for preparing for the lecture. Thank you for your question. This course does come automatically with a guidebook, including course notes, a glossary, biographical notes, and a bibliography. We also offer a transcript book for an additional cost that would include all the aforementioned information in addition to a verbatim transcript of each lecture.

Robert C. What I want to ask you is to look at emotions, as I have, as something wondrous, something mysterious, something exotic, as well as something dangerous, something profound, and something valuable. The message of Existentialism, unlike that of many more obscure and academic philosophical movements, is about as simple as can be.

My purpose here is to offer a defence of existentialism against several reproaches that have been laid against it. First, it has been reproached as an invitation to people to dwell in quietism of despair. For if every way to a solution is barred, one would have to regard any action in this world as entirely ineffective, and one would arrive finally at a contemplative philosophy.

Для панков? - переспросил бармен, странно посмотрев на Беккера. - Да. Есть ли в Севилье такое место, где тусуются панки. - No lo se, senor.

Пять человек. Четверо. Всего трое.

Тогда станет понятно, почему он вручную отключил Следопыта. Через несколько секунд на экране показалась надпись: ОБЪЕКТ НЕ НАЙДЕН Не зная, что искать дальше, она ненадолго задумалась и решила зайти с другой стороны. НАЙТИ: ЗАМОК ЭКРАНА Монитор показал десяток невинных находок - и ни одного намека на копию ее персонального кода в компьютере Хейла. Сьюзан шумно вздохнула.

При чем здесь таблица умножения? - подумала Сьюзан.

Стратмор увидел пятна крови на ее блузке и тотчас пожалел о своей вспышке. - Боже, Сьюзан, с тобой все в порядке. Она промолчала. Не нужно было так резко с ней говорить. Но у него не выдержали нервы.

На каждом из них красовалась печать АНБ. - Хочешь посмотреть, чем занимаются люди в шифровалке? - спросил он, заметно нервничая. - Вовсе нет, - ответила Мидж.  - Хотела бы, но шифровалка недоступна взору Большого Брата. Ни звука, ни картинки.

Повисла тягостная тишина. Когда Мидж заговорила, ее голос был мрачным: - Стратмор мог обойти фильтры. Джабба снова вздохнул.

 Встретимся в Стоун-Мэнор. Она кивнула, и из ее глаз потекли слезы. - Договорились.

 А кто же еще! - ответил тот с гордостью.  - Хочу его запатентовать. - Как торговую марку? - Беккер смотрел на него изумленно. Парень был озадачен.

Но каждый раз, когда он предлагал перевод, дешифровщики в отчаянии качали головами. Очевидно, получалась бессмыслица. Желая помочь, Беккер обратил их внимание на то, что все показанные ему иероглифы объединяет нечто общее - они одновременно являются и иероглифами кандзи. В комнате тут же стало тихо. Старший дешифровщик, нескладный тип по имени Морант, не выпускавший сигареты изо рта, недоверчиво уставился на Беккера.

Танкадо использовал ТРАНСТЕКСТ, чтобы запустить вирус в главный банк данных. Стратмор вяло махнул рукой в сторону монитора. Сьюзан посмотрела на экран и перевела взгляд на диалоговое окно.

Ему было понятно нетерпение иностранца, но все-таки зачем рваться без очереди. Беккер наклонил голову и тщательно разжевывал облатку. Он почувствовал, что сзади что-то произошло, возникло какое-то замешательство, и подумал о человеке, у которого купил пиджак.

Комната служила гордым напоминанием о тех временах: доспехи, гравюры на военные сюжеты и золотые слитки из Нового Света за стеклом. За конторкой с надписью КОНСЬЕРЖ сидел вежливый подтянутый мужчина, улыбающийся так приветливо, словно всю жизнь ждал минуты, когда сможет оказать любезность посетителю. - En que puedo servile, senor. Чем могу служить, сеньор? - Он говорил нарочито шепеляво, а глаза его внимательно осматривали лицо и фигуру Беккера. Беккер ответил по-испански: - Мне нужно поговорить с Мануэлем.

 Ты уверен, что его никто не купил. - Да вы все спятили. Это за четыреста-то баксов.

The essential function of a genuine liberal arts education is to liberate the minds of students by teaching them how to conceptually identify and critically examine their fundamental assumptions, ideologies, value systems, and modes of thinking behind our society, cultures, and human lives.
