HW12 due 3/14: Essay Prep

1. Essay Prep–Today we spent time in pairs looking for the various ways the following texts can be meaningfully connected to Man’s Search for Meaning:

  • That Individual by Søren Kierkegaard
  • The Encounter with Nothingness by William Barrett
  • Existentialism is a Humanism by Jean Paul Sartre
  • On the Suffering of the World by Arthur Schopenhauer
  • On the Vanity of Existence by Arthur Schopenhauer

I expect that you and your partner identified at least two possible connections. Tonight, in your notebook, I want you to discuss in more detail how the chosen philosophical text (i.e. That Individual) helps to shape a discussion of Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning. You should do this for two of the connections made in class. This homework assignment should be at least one notebook page in length.
