This module in philosophy examines the individual views of the following thinkers in the 20th century, especially during and after World War 2: Jean Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Gabriel Marcel, and Simone Weil. In addition, Mary Midgley and Jurgen Habermas in the 20th and 21st centuries highlight the importance of those who differ from us and their equality as human beings.
