"The Outsider" by Colin Wilson is a seminal work in existentialist literature, first published in 1956. The book examines the concept of the "outsider"—an individual who feels alienated from society and struggles to find meaning and purpose in life. Wilson explores this theme through the lives and works of various writers, artists, and thinkers, including figures like Albert Camus, Friedrich Nietzsche, Vincent van Gogh, and T.E. Lawrence.

Wilson argues that outsiders are often highly sensitive, introspective individuals who perceive a deeper reality that most people overlook. This heightened awareness, however, often leads to feelings of isolation and despair. Through his analysis, Wilson suggests that the outsider's journey can ultimately lead to self-discovery and enlightenment if they can harness their unique perspective and creativity.

"The Outsider" is notable for its interdisciplinary approach, blending philosophy, psychology, literature, and cultural critique. It has influenced a wide range of readers and thinkers and remains an important text in understanding the existential dilemmas of the modern individual.
