Karl Jaspers by Karl Jaspers

Book Description

Karl Jaspers (1883-1969) is one of the most original and seminal thinkers of the twentieth century. Rich in ideas, vast in scope, far-ranging and complex, his work is distributed over a large corpus of writing. In fact, it is just the very size and the range of his thought that have tended to make Jaspers inaccessible. The editors of this volume set out to provide a guided introduction to Jaspers through a systematic organisation of selections from the whole body of his writing. The volume aims to convey an accurate presentation of the content and movement of Jaspers' philosophising and to provide insights into the wide range of his philosophical achievements. The editors provide comments and information on each of the seventy-four selections to help set each piece within the context of the whole of Jaspers' work. This is an invaluable introduction to Karl Jaspers' work for the student and the critical reader.
