By M.A. Natanson

"Why is my soreness perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuseth to be healed?" -Jeremiah "Existentialism" this day refers to faddism, decadentism, morbidity, the "philosophy of the graveyard"; to phrases like worry, dread, nervousness, pain, ache, aloneness, dying; to novelists similar to Jean-Paul Sartre, Dostoievski, Camus, Kafka; to philosophers like Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Marcel, Jaspers, and Sartre-and since it refers to, and is worried with, all of those rules and individuals, existentialism has misplaced any clearer which means it could have initially possessed. since it has such a lot of definitions, it could not be outlined. As Sartre writes: "Most those who use the note existentialism will be em­ barrased in the event that they needed to clarify it, considering that, now that the notice is all of the rage, even the paintings of a musician or painter is being referred to as existentialist. A gossip columnist . . . indicators himself The Exis­ tentialist, in order that by way of this time the observe has been so stretched and has taken on so wide a that means, that it now not potential something in any respect. " 2 This kingdom of definitional confusion isn't an unintentional or negligible subject. An try could be made during this advent to account for the confustion and to teach why any definition of existentialism in­ volves us in a tangle. First, in spite of the fact that, it is important to kingdom in a tenta­ tive and intensely normal demeanour what issues of view are right here meant while reference is made to existentialism.
