Existentialism by Suraj (Pt. II)

In the preceding post, it was determined that existentialism’s prime focus should be on what it, itself means. Let us try a familiar method in reducing “existentialism” to its component parts: existential and -ism.

Any English term ending in -ism refers to its prefix as an ideology, or belief structure. Thus, existentialism refers to our epistemology concerning existence.

What, then, is existence? Existence is the set of all that exists. In reality, all that exists is denoted by existentiality. Existentiality (or, what I call “existential reality”) will be the focus of Pt. III in this series.
