To "prove" their case, existentialists have recourse to two types of argument: they can either show that the traditional values are impossible to achieve, or show that even if they could be achieved, it would entail the sacrifice of more important values. In the arts and literature, the best examples in our readings include the poetry of Anne Bradstreet, Phillis Wheatley, and Philip Freneau; the political and social writings of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Thomas Paine; and the philosophical essay, "Age of Reason," by Thomas Paine.

Like moments of existential revelation, music in performance possesses an immediacy unapproached by notes—or words—on a page, and it is such that it can be experienced without "conscious understanding." He refers to the ‘practico-inert’ world, the dimension of the society which is produced by human praxis but then comes into conflict with it. 10 For instance, workers struggle against capital, they form unions (the practical organisational form of their praxis) but then these unions become bureaucratised and deadened to the needs of the members – at this point the bureaucratic union can be considered practico-inert.

Sartre defines his existentialist ontology of freedom in terms of the opposition of "being-in-itself" and "being-for-itself," which in us as individuals is manifested in the tension between the fact that we always find ourselves in a particular situation defined by a body of facts that we may not have chosen—our "facticity"—and our ability to transcend that facticity, imagine, and choose—our transcendence. It is aware of itself and of its objects and aware of its absolute separation from the region of things. 2.

In its emphasis on stylized angular forms it is also visually somewhat similar to Art Deco. Psychotherapists using an existential approach believe that a patient can harness his anxiety and use it constructively. Sartre would always make the claim that the deeper reason for denying our transcendence is crushing responsibility being entirely responsible for ones own self and behavior. A Companion to Phenomenology and Existentialism is a complete guide to two of the dominant movements of philosophy in the twentieth century.

Suprematism was a key art movement in Russia, being closely linked with the Revolution. Do not look within its covers for a reinterpretation of hermeneutics, but do look there for a wider field of hermeneutic engagements than one ordinarily finds. He was not, however, academically trained, and his work was attacked by professional philosophers for lack of rigor and critical standards.

It is in the first conversation that it is believed that Welhaven came up with "a word that he said covered a certain thinking, which had a close and positive attitude to life, a relationship he described as existential". [16] This was then brought to Kierkegaard by Sibbern. Now is the time to restore that outlook with direct action. Nature was teaming with life and consciousness, a partner in the spiritual quickening of the person sensitive to his or her own membership as an element of that same "Nature."

But this is obviously a half-truth, for boxers and mountaineers just as much as dedicated scientists do expose themselves, voluntarily, to pain. Instead of the disturbingly confessional mode emphasized above by Sartre, Hannah uses the veils of fiction and humor to discuss his own childhood. They rejected traditional philosophical and scientific rationality and typically resorted to literature, prophecy, pamphleteering, and ponderous obfuscation, any means necessary to wake up the world from its boring bourgeois and at the same time brutal and irresponsible behavior.

To begin with, an existential life is absurd – indeed absurdity is an ontological fundamental. Therefore, not every choice is perceived as having dreadful possible consequences (and, it can be claimed, human lives would be unbearable if every choice facilitated dread). In Notes from the Underground (1864), the alienated antihero rages against the optimistic assumptions of rationalist humanism. Instead, they focus on bodies as actually lived by subjects; bodies that grow, have sex, laugh, cry, become disabled, age, and die.

Francis Bacon (1909-1992) is known for his theatricality, violence, and claustrophobic environments. I may say "I love my mother well enough to remain with her" if I have remained with her. This set of techniques is continuity editing. But such character might also be a reflection of my choice of myself, a commitment I make to be a person of this sort. Nausea’s main character continually writes in his diary about the changes he sees occurring around him in the “World of objects” and the nausea he experiences from the objects that become increasingly alien.

His importance lasted more than a thousand years and still, in some forms, continues today among great thinkers. We cannot grasp the meaning of a text once interplay between the past and the present. He also has an interiority that is impenetrable but can only be accessed by him. This brings us to the first principle of existentialism—that “Man is nothing other than what he makes of himself,” or in simpler terms—the world of human subjectivity.
