Philosophy – Existentialism and Absurdism

leave a comment »

Existentialism: Form of philosophical inquiry that explores the problem of human existence and centers on the subjective experience of thinking, feeling, and acting

Absurdism: The philosophical theory that life in general is absurd. This implies that the world lacks meaning or a higher purpose and is not fully intelligible by reason.

Søren Kierkegaard (b1813), Albert Camus (b1913)

Albert Camus: Philosophically, Camus’s views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as absurdism. He is also considered to be an existentialist, even though he firmly rejected the term throughout his lifetime. ref

Adidas’s famous tagline follows in the great sports apparel trend of inspirational mumbo-jumbo. It’ll also send you into an existential spiral.
