OPTION 4
TWO POSTS REQUIRED
FIRST POST (Main post)
Offer your reflections on the different approaches atheistic existentialists and Christian existentialists take to the general question of the meaning of life.
This is not an easy topic. Do your best to work through how, say, Sartre would approach the question of the meaning of human life, and then consider, say, Niebuhr’s or Tillich’s approach. You may also discuss de Beauvior as well.
How would you approach this question? Did did you learn anything from the study of these existentialists?
