"From Shakespeare to Existentialism" is a text by Walter Kaufmann.

Excerpt:

Jaspers is too often seen as the heir of Nietzsche and Kierkegaard to whom he is in many ways less close than to Kant...the Kantian antinomies and Kant's concern with the realm of decision, freedom, and faith have become exemplary for Jaspers. And even as Kant "had to do away with knowledge to make room for faith," Jaspers values Nietzsche in large measure because he thinks that Nietzsche did away with knowledge, thus making room for Jaspers' philosophic faith"...
"As is well-known, Heine suggested that Kant introduced faith and God in his ... to take seriously the project of denying knowledge in making room for faith"
