    Existentialism pervades modern culture, yet if you ask most people what it means, they won’t be able to tell you. In this lively and topical introduction, Wartenberg reveals a vibrant mode of philosophical inquiry that addresses concerns at the heart of the existence of every human being. He uses classic films, novels, and plays to present the ideas of now-legendary Existentialist thinkers from Nietzsche and Camus to Sartre and Heidegger and to explore central concepts, including freedom, anxiety, and the absurd.

    Very early one morning, Samantha Barlow, mother of two young children, was brutally attacked with a brick on her way to work as a policewoman in Kings Cross. She was left for dead in a park. She could have been any young woman - the attack was completely random. Samantha's husband, Laurence, an inspector used to managing huge police operations, was thrown into the role of caregiver. She went through 22 months of rehab for both physical and head-trauma injuries, and triumphantly returned to work. The couple speak candidly of Samantha's journey over the last four years, and the personal price they've paid to be in the police force.
