Basic Concepts

Existentialists regard people as meaning-making beings who are both subjects of expe- rience

and objects of self-reflection. We are mortal creatures who, because we are self- aware, know

that we are mortal. Yet it is only in reflecting on our mortality that we can learn how to live.

People ask themselves questions concerning their being: Who am I? Is life worth living? Does it

have a meaning? How can I realize my humanity? Existential- ists hold that, ultimately, each of

us must come to terms with these questions, and each of us is responsible for who we are and

what we become.
