Existentialism, a philosophical movement that emerged in the 20th century, emphasises individual existence, freedom, and choice as fundamental aspects of human life. It posits that humans define their own meaning in a world that inherently lacks it, confronting them with the responsibility of shaping their lives. Prominent existentialist thinkers, like Jean-Paul Sartre and Friedrich Nietzsche, argue that individuals must confront the ‘absurd’ nature of life and make authentic choices despite existential angst and uncertainty. This philosophy challenges traditional notions of morality and destiny, encouraging a personal journey towards self-realisation and authenticity in an indifferent universe.
