On existentialism, why it is wrong

Jean-Paul Sartre, considered the father of existentialism, was born 100 years ago on June 21, 1905. The French novelist, playwright and philosopher held a bleak view of life and other people. His first novel, thought to be mostly autobiographical, was called Nausea. In 1964, Sartre declined the Nobel Prize for Literature. Sartre's most famous philosophical work is entitled Being and Nothingness (1943).

"Only the guy who isn't rowing has time to rock the boat." – Jean-Paul Sartre

Phenomenology, a philosophy originated by Edmund Husserl, states that reality consists of objects and events as they are perceived in human consciousness; phenomenology is considered a basis for the tenets of existentialism.

Very Aristotelian and diametrically opposed to Socraticism. This philosophy puts its full faith and trust in the five senses: Sight, hearing, tasting, feeling, and smelling. Amazingly, this view limits reality to the bounds of human sensory perception.

How pitiful!

Socrates taught that human sensory perception is quite inadequate to help us describe the fullness of reality and that wisdom comes only from the Creator, who is Father God. He calls that Creative Force the Light. Later on, God sent His Only Begotton Son to be born of the Ever Virgin Mary, who retained her virginity all of her life. She gave Birth to God the Word, and her womb contained the uncontainable, the infinite God, the Logos, the Alpha and the Omega. Glory to the Incarnation of Christ our Lord, Glory to His Death that destroyed death, Glory to His Resurrection on the Third Day. Glory to His Condescension, Glory to His Creation, Glory to His Rule over the Communities of the Body of Christ, Glory to His Great Mercy, Who Loves humankind. Glory to Thee, our Lord Jesus Christ, Glory to Thee.

Truly Awesome!!!
