I'm really interested in Existentialism and I'm looking for some recommendations of where to start in terms of reading.
I've already ploughed through Nietzsche and have taken a tentative look at Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, but I'm looking for some guidance on what else I should read.
Thanks for your help.
Do you have a personal problem you would like to discuss?
Søren Kierkegaard is truly a great philosopher to get lost in, Either/Or (in particular Diapsalmata) and Sickness Unto Death are as good a place to start as any. Albert Camus and Sartre shared similar existential views, his essay Myth of Sisyphus is a brilliant read. Arthur Schopenhauer was a huge influence on Nietzsche, if you liked his work you may fancy Schopenhauer.
This reply is a bit late but if you haven't read those yet they're a fine choice.
Enjoy! : )
