But a mood or movement whose central characteristic is revolt, and whose stress is on self-expression and individual uniqueness, does not lend itself to precise definition. Blowing out the candles of federal absolutism is the imperative of our age. Sartre posits the idea that "what all existentialists have in common is the fundamental doctrine that existence precedes essence ", as scholar Frederick Copleston explains. [16] According to philosopher Steven Crowell, defining existentialism has been relatively difficult, and he argues that it is better understood as a general approach used to reject certain systematic philosophies rather than as a systematic philosophy itself. [2] Sartre himself, in a lecture delivered in 1945, described existentialism as "the attempt to draw all the consequences from a position of consistent atheism." [17] Although many outside Scandinavia consider the term existentialism to have originated from Kierkegaard himself, it is more likely that Kierkegaard adopted this term (or at least the term "existential" as a description of his philosophy) from the Norwegian poet and literary critic Johan Sebastian Cammermeyer Welhaven.

He did not know a single one of the feelings of man, not one of his passions. Here it is also clear that since humans can choose to be either cruel or good, they are, in fact, neither of these things essentially. [23] Sartre's definition of existentialism was based on Heidegger's magnum opus "Being and Time".

The philosophy is by most standards a very loose conglomeration of perspectives, aesthetics, and approaches to dealing with the world and its inherent difficulties. Well, not only do his favorite mystics back his view but so does personal experience. Moreover, to say that we invent values means nothing else but this: life has no meaning a priori. What one needs to recognize at the outset is that though these are movements professedly shaped by the intellectual himself, and claiming to be rational and progressive, yet actually their main substantial values are a conglomerate of traditional emotional (largely Christian) values.
