We knew it would happen eventually, the only surprise being that it took 108 of these damned daily shows. We got all philosophical on your collective existential asses. OK, granted Pete picked the wrong nihilist, so sue him. He learnt all his philosophy from the Bruce’s song and listening to a podcast by Barry, the philosophical poet from Punchbowl. And we might talk about leafers, Vermont and the descent into hell. Only two more daily shows to go after this.
What do we mean by saying that existence precedes essence? We mean that man first of all exists, encounters himself, surges up in the world – and defines himself afterwards. If man as the existentialist sees him is not definable, it is because to begin with he is nothing. He will not be anything until later, and then he will be what he makes of himself.” Here it is made clear what is meant by Existentialists when they say meaning is “a consequence of engagement and commitment”. some French dude with pipe.
