Birth, School, Work, Death

Existential America_0This is an entertaining podcast about existentialism from the program To the Best of Our Knowledge. It is described on the program’s website as follows:

“After World War Two, existentialism was all the rage in the U.S.A.  College students rebelled by smoking European cigarettes and wearing black clothes and berets.  Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus felt that Americans were too self-confident and superficial to accept this dark, brooding philosophy, but it seems existentialism has deep American roots.  On this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, the history of angst in America.  Also, why Nietzche’s philosophy still matters.”
