One of the ways in which this phrase became famous, and I think it was without a conscious effort, was that it was part of Sartre's "Being and Nothingness" written in 1943. It is one of his most profound works detailing the inner thoughts he had on existentialism. I won't go so far as to say he coined it, but Indiana Jones didn't invent those hats either, he just sold a lot of them.
