Most widely held works by Walter Kaufmann
Existentialism : from Dostoevsky to Sartre by Walter Kaufmann( Book )

116 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 3,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existentialism is perhaps the most misunderstood of modern philosophic positions-- misunderstood by reason of its broad popularity and general unfamiliarity with its origins, representatives, and principles. Existential thinking did not originate with Jean Paul Sartre. It has prior religious, literary, and philosophic origins. In its narrowest formulation it is a metaphysical doctrine, arguing as it does that any definition of man's essence must follow, not precede, an estimation of his existence. In Heidegger, it affords a view of Being in its totality; in Kierkegaard, an approach to that inwardness indispensable to authentic religious experience; for Dostoevsky, Kafka, and Rilke the existential situation bears the stamp of modern man's alienation, uprootedness, and absurdity; to Sartre it has vast ethical and political implications. This book contains only complete selections or entire works by the major thinkers.--From publisher description

Religion from Tolstoy to Camus by Walter Kaufmann( Book )

38 editions published between 1961 and 2017 in English and held by 1,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walter Kaufmann devoted his life to exploring the religious implications of literary and philosophical texts. Deeply skeptical about the human and moral benets of modern secularism, he also criticized the quest for certainty pursued through dogma. Kaufmann saw a risk of loss of authenticity in what he described as unjustied retreats into the past. This is a compilation of signicant texts on religious thought that he selected and introduced."--Provided by publisher

The problems of today's system of higher education are evaluated by exploring the failure of colleges and universities to truly educate to cope with our changing world and by explaining why the prospects for doctoral graduates in the arts and humanities are dismal. After analyzing four kinds of minds, the author shows in detail what is wrong with the ways the classics are read; discusses book reviewing, translating, and editing; looks at the place of religion in higher education; and looks at curricula. The primary focus is on "humanity" in education. (Mse)
