Existentialism
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search The philosophers Søren Kierkegaard and Friedrich Nietzsche foreshadowed existentialism. Existentialism is the term applied to the work of a number of and 20th-century philosophers who, despite profound doctrinal differences, generally held that the focus of philosophical thought should be to deal with the conditions of existence of the individual person and his or her emotions, actions, responsibilities, and thoughts. The early 19th century philosopher Søren Kierkegaard , posthumously regarded as the father of existentialism, maintained that the individual is solely responsible for giving his or her own life meaning and for living that life passionately and sincerely in spite of many existential obstacles and distractions including despair angst absurdity alienation , and boredom Subsequent existentialist philosophers retain the emphasis on the individual, but differ, in varying degrees, on how one achieves and what constitutes a fulfilling life, what obstacles must be overcome, and what external and internal factors are involved, including the potential consequences of the existence or non-existence of God.

Existential
This layer's quadrants are based on the work of Irvin Yalom , the pioneer of existential therapy. In his book, Existential Psychotherapy, he enumerates four existential truths, and posits that all neurotic suffering springs from resisting or denying one or more of these truths. The paradox of a great truth is that it is true, and its opposite is true. When we truly embrace these existential truths, we go beyond them and integrate their equal and opposite truth.
I am alone.
I am born alone, I die alone, and in between I am alone. I can never truly know another. Resistance of this truth shows up as clinging and fear of solitude in extreme cases, agoraphobia, narcissism or schizoid tendencies. When I embrace this truth, then I can authentically be in deep relationship with everyone in my life.
I have power.

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS ABOUT EXISTENTIALISM The acute analysis to which Existentialism has subjected the human person reveals one undeniable fact: the weakness of man, who is burdened by the most galling contradictions. In the speculative sphere there is the desire to possess absolute knowledge but it is rendered vain by the constant presence of skeptical doubt; in the field of morality there is the desire for infinite happiness but it is rendered uncertain by the constant presence of evil; there is the desire for everlasting life but it is dashed to the depths by the ubiquitous presence of death.

Getting to Know our Fear of the Unknown Written by Jules-André Tétreault Tuesday, 19 October 2010 00:00 To be afraid of what we do not know is one of humans' natural instincts. We have evolved using this fear to avoid dangerous circumstances. Without this instinct we could not survive. Where fearing the unknown becomes problematic is when instead of avoiding harmful situations, we move away from enriching ones. No matter whether you fear it or not, if you think about it, the unknown is everywhere and it is unavoidable. This can be very paralysing but if we learn to control fear, it becomes a powerful fuel in our lives. tweetmeme_style = 'compact';tweetmeme_url = 'http://www.existential.com/getting-to-know-our-fear-of-the-unknown.html'; Read more...

5. Why Become An Existential Psychotherpist By Louis Hoffman, Ph.D.
An overview of existential psychotherapy written for students considering becoming existential therapists.
http://www.depth-psychotherapy-network.com/student_section/orientation_overviews
Existential Psychotherapy
Home Consumers Students Professionals ... Contact Us Why Become an Existential Psychotherapist?
Louis Hoffman, Ph.D. Existential psychotherapy seems to draw both intrigue and hesitation from students and professionals in the mental health field. This is not a surprise from a therapy approach embracing paradox and priding itself in being largely technique-less. However, the fear of existentialism is largely due to a lack of understanding. In this overview, I hope to demonstrate that existential therapy is less threatening than it first appears, but also much more exciting and powerful than is often realized. Flexibility with Foundation One of the advantages of the existential approach is that it provides a framework from which other approaches can be integrated. Kirk Schneider and Rollo May (1995), two of the most influential existential therapists, outlined an existential integrative approach. This places existential therapy as the foundation, but allows for an integration of other theories. However, because of the emphasis on authenticity, genuineness, and critical thought, it also demands that approaches or aspects of approaches which are integrated remain consistent with the foundation. The flexibility of existentialism comes from many sources. By its nature, existential therapy does not fit with the fundamentalism that develops within many other approaches. The most successful therapies adapt to the strengths of the individual therapist, but also to each client. As Yalom (2002) states, a new therapy is created with each client.

GIRL IN MUSEUM: It restates the negativeness of the universe, the hideous lonely emptiness of existence, nothingness, the predicament of man forced to live in a barren, godless eternity, like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void, with nothing but waste, horror, and degradation, forming a useless bleak straightjacket in a black absurd cosmos.

It is, in a very short phrase, the philosophy of 'no excuses!' We cannot shift that burden onto God, or nature, or the ways of the world. Professor Robert Solomon

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article is missing citations or needs footnotes . Please help add inline citations (February 2007) Existential psychotherapy is a method of therapy that operates on the belief that inner conflict within a person is due to that individual's confrontation with the givens of existence. These givens, as noted by Yalom , are: the inevitability of death, freedom and its attendant responsibility, existential isolation (referring to Phenomenology ), and finally meaninglessness. These four givens, also referred to as ultimate concerns, form the body of existential psychotherapy and compose the framework in which a therapist conceptualizes a client's problem in order to develop a method of treatment.

choosingchange theory takes into account the many kinds of psychological theories, including Behavoural (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Psychodynamic (the unconscious and conscious), Freudian (psychoanalysis, interpreting client's thoughts and ideas), Systemic (seeing the client within a system or in relationship with/to, sometimes reffered to as "object relations" standpoint), Narrative (re-interpreting or reframing client's stories)... and an Existential approach. Existential therapy considers your issues and despairs, problems or troubles originate from many sources but ultimately it is our confrontation with the human condition, or the seemingly meaninglessness of the human condition that confuses and confounds. Existential therapy aims to experience the world as a baby; to know the world as a human being. To hold an individual view with the world in mind. The existential therapist will take an optimistic viewalongside arational approach while recognising human (individual and society) limitatons.

My Little Corner of Existentialim
What is Existentialism? Existentialism is the philosophy that places emphasis on individual existence, freedom, and choice. Existentialism stresses the individuality of existence, and the problems that arise with said existence. Because there is so much diversity in the philosophy of existentialism, a concrete definition is hard to put down. Certain themes are common to almost all existential writing, which helps mark the writing as such. The term itself suggests one major theme, the stress on concrete, individual existence, and on subjectivity, individual freedom and choice. The idea of the highest ehthical good can be found in philosophy since the days of Socrates and Plato. It was generally held that this good was the same for everybody; as a person approached this moral perfection, she/he became morally like the next person approaching this moral perfection. Kierkegaard reacted to this way of thinking by saying that it was up to the individual to find his or her own moral perfection and his or her own way there. "I must find the truth that is the truth for me. . .the idea for which I can live or die" he wrote. Other Existentialists have followed along this way of thinking, one must choose one's own way, make their own individual paths without the aid of univeral ideas or guidance. Subjectivity is also important to Existentialism. Passionate choices and actions are important. Personal experiance and acting on one's own convictions are essential to arriving at personal truths. A better understanding of a situation is gained when one is in the middle then watching from the sidelines with a detached view. Systematic reasoning and acting is avoided at all costs in Existential thought. Kierkegaard and Nietzsche are noted for their random, unsystematic way of exploring their ideas, using many different literary syles to express themselves.
