Introduction to 20th century philosophical and literary movement which, rooted in traditional questions of freedom and moral responsibility, breaks dramatically with the past in its emphasis on concrete existence and the passions over abstract rationality, its conception of self as a product of radically free acts of self-creation, its affirmation of uncertainty and absurdity as inescapable elements of the human condition, and its rejection of traditional ethical systems.
