I’m working on a humanities discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
While difficult to encapsulate, Existentialism suggests that there are no external forces/creators to whom one might appeal to for direction in regard to right and wrong (Ethics), or what is Good of Evil (Morals). We create purpose, meaning, morals, ethics. These then can be negated by our freedom to choose, to go beyond these man-made concepts, and we must take full responsibility for all of our actions, not as directed by an authority, or judged by “others.”
What aspects of Existential Philosophy do you incorporate in your daily life and which aspects do you reject? Explain your reasoning and give specific scenarios/situations, or examples to support your views.
