William Barrett on Existentialism, part 3 of 3

Written by William Barrett

William Barrett and Bryan Magee discuss Existentialism in terms of Martin Heidegger and Jean-Paul Sartre.


The book by Henry Miller: The Air-Conditioned Nightmare referred to in this video by William Barrett chronicles Miller’s return to America in 1939. The Air-Conditioned Nightmare is a collection of sketches, set out on a cross-country journey to re-discover his homeland and all infused by Miller’s judgments and generalizations, variously insightful, humorous and poetic.
