This first volume examines how sexual mores and behavior, religious dogma and practice, and artistic creativity and authenticity have influenced, and been influenced by, the existentialist thought of Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Sartre, Nietzsche, Husserl and Buber, and the writings of Camus, Dostoevsky, Beckett, Kafka and Shestov.It compares the author's personality theory with those of Freud, Jung, Fairbairn, Karl Abraham and Melanie Klein, and Buddhist, Gnostic, Christian and Muslim mysticism with Jewish Kabbalah. It explains society's harsh treatment of Carlo Gesualdo, Vincent van Gogh and Antonin Artaud, and analyzes the existentialist approach to existence, absurdity, human dialogue, and suicide.It will appeal to students and professionals in fields as diverse as philosophy, psychology, sociology, anthropology, religion, law, music, art, drama, literature and biology.
