It is not because we are bourgeois, but because we seek to base our teaching upon the truth, and not upon a collection of fine theories, full of hope but lacking real foundations. However, Socrates' words and beliefs formed the basis of Plato's writings. Instead, Uriah would not break faith with his fellow soldiers still on the battlefield and refused to sleep with her.

Holstein. - Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage, 2002. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, existentialism was being quietly introduced, primarily in university classrooms. And that's self-evidently not true to me. True, she successfully shocked one feminist interviewer in 1972 by insisting that her main infl uence in writing it was Being and Nothingness. The most adamant form of despair is that of defiance. At other times, I have heard people state that really postmodernism is just existentialism in a new language.

Many New England intellectuals found intellectual sanctuary in Unitarianism that came to dominate theological discourse in a number of Protestant divinity schools. My angle on much of this was through Niebuhr (of course) and, especially Sontag. Christian Science denies that the incarnation of Christ was the fullness of deity dwelling in human flesh, denies the perfection of the man Jesus, and attempts to explain away the historical death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ (Science and Health, pp. 336, 29, 332, 53, 398, 313, 593; Miscellaneous Writings, p. 201) Christian Science believes that Mary's conception of Jesus was spiritual -- on pages 332 and 347 of the virgin birth of Christ is described and explained: "Jesus was the offspring of Mary's self-conscious communion with God. ...

Postmodernism then is the critique of grand narratives, the awareness that such narratives serve to mask the contradictions and instabilities that are inherent in any social organization or practice. It celebrates the sexiest skin, the most resilient flesh, the most exquisite suggestion of a line of hair running from the navel down.

Above all, Nietzsche has managed somehow to associate his name with the turmoil of a crisis. It also reflects the outlook of the artist. The whole question of justice in society is closely linked to the very structure of that society. The “Anglo-American” vs. “European” false dichotomy implied by labels like “Continental” do an injustice to the significant cultural differences within philosophy. Encouraged by this group of writers, known later as the Lost Generation, Hemingway began to write fiction and poetry.

Using Sisyphus‟ of our labor but not allowing it to despair our existence. Whenever someone grows into an established culture without ever questioning the tenets of its morality, laws, religion, aesthetics, or reigning common sense, a person has betrayed his or her human freedom by behaving like an object—by cultivating “bad faith,” as Sartre calls it. In this sense the responsibility of the for-itself is overwhelming since he is the one by whom it happens that there is a world; since he is also the one who makes himself be, then whatever may be the situation in which he finds himself, the for-itself must wholly assume this situation with its peculiar coefficient of adversity, even though it be insupportable.

[93] The play also illustrates an attitude toward human experience on earth: the poignancy, oppression, camaraderie, hope, corruption, and bewilderment of human experience that can be reconciled only in the mind and art of the absurdist.

The reasons why this happens are many, ranging from a tragedy that "tears a person's world apart," to the results of an honest inquiry into one's own existence.

Would it be a place without positive constraint, morality and a law-abiding civilisation? According to him, to understand the parts, we need to understand the whole, and the whole can only be understood on the basis of the parts. The typical image of an Existentialist as clad all in black, drinking coffee and smoking on the Paris Left bank has endured, though by all accounts the emergence of the stereotypical Existential figure was something of a surprise to de Beauvoir and other Existentialists of the time (MacDonald, 2000: 5).
