A person has a ‘concreteness’, ‘particularity’ and ‘uniqueness’ which make it impossible to equate him with an aggregate of instantiated universals. … Kierkegaard’s constant references to ‘the existing individual’, ‘the existing thinker’ and the like are intended to remind his readers — versed, presumably, in the traditional doctrine or its more recent Hegelian variation — that, with human beings, their existence is peculiarly ‘particular’, and known to themselves ‘immediately’.

This is in stark contrast to Valjean who learns to question the nature of justice in society and appreciate the value of tolerance through his experiences, while Javert is determined to uphold the values of society without recourse to thought and consideration. And if you're a normal human and not a sociopath you won't enjoy life without the love and companionship of other human beings. Produced under Nazi censorship, the play is purposefully ambiguous with regards to the rejection of authority (represented by Antigone) and the acceptance of it (represented by Creon).

Condemned, because he did not create himself, yet, in other respects is free, because, once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does. Ohio newspaper editor, David Ross Locke unleashed perhaps the most vitriolic character ever conceived in American letters, "Petroleum Vesuvius Nasby," a Northern democrat, sympathetic to all things "Southern" and Confederate, to castigate the South and its institution of slavery.

It was turned against such international movements as socialism, and it found outlet in pursuit of glory and empire (see imperialism ). In this system, a lack of external reference or authority ultimately renders the individually an 'island universe', completely unable to relate to what is true for others. For since we ignore the commandments of God and all values prescribed as eternal, nothing remains but what is strictly voluntary. The Look is then co-constitutive of one's facticity.

I suppose the big problem would be that we would fall down and worship each other.�[6] More About Merton We know Loyola today mainly due to his founding of the Society of Jesus, or the order of the Jesuits in 1534. Hollingdale stated the Nietzsche set forth three hypotheses that "offered naturalistic substitutes for God, divine grace and eternal life; instead of God, the superman, instead of divine grace, the will to power; and instead of eternal life--the eternal recurrence."50 The passage entitled "The Madman" from the Gay Science is one of the widely quoted comments about the demise of God.

As with their European counterparts, Thomas Carlyle and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, for the American romantic philosophers like Ralph Waldo Emerson and his close friend and fellow Concordian, Henry David Thoreau, the place of the "intuition" was central to the interpretation of human nature. My preference in teaching is to focus deeply rather than broadly on major philosophical thinkers. For example, many 19th century intellectuals were interested in ancient Greece, Rome, the Medieval period, or the orient, as alternative models of a less spoiled, more integrated form of life.

This gives support to his view that „existence precedes essence.‟ Sartre‟s novel, Nausea (1937), was in some ways a manifesto of atheistic existentialism.

In this experience that "nothing is holding me back", one senses the lack of anything that predetermines one to either throw oneself off or to stand still, and one experiences one's own freedom.
