However, this was not meant to be empty nostalgia for European history. It is here that the idea of “authenticity” must come into focus. The movement influenced the work of famous Italian dramatist Luigi Pirandello, who wrote Six Characters in Search of an Author (1921). I do, however, have a way of evading this. Poe transports the metrical patterns and the refrains of musical composition into the craft of writing poetry. Alternatively, existential cinema deals more with the themes of: Retaining authenticity in an apathetic, mechanical world, something post-modernism would staunchly reject--as authenticity is related to a non-existent "reality".

Thus, totally free, undistinguishable from the period for which I have chosen to be the meaning, as profoundly responsible for the war as if I had myself declared it, unable to live without integrating it in my situation, engaging myself in it wholly and stamping it with my seal, I must be without remorse or regrets as I am without excuse; for from the instant of my upsurge into being, I carry the weight of the world by myself alone without anything or any person being able to lighten it.

Unlike other intro books, however, this one is not condescending, does not avoid problems with reasoning, and is remarkably honest as it is deep. Instead of suppressing anxiety, patients are advised to use it as grounds for change. To this extent Sartre takes certain categories from Marx but gives them a new spin, locating the real contradiction not so much in the struggle of classes but in humanities relationship to the world.

As a result, humanity will continue to relegate itself to self-imposed immaturity, thus living in both stunned apathy and agonizing inertia. Cain’s novella Double Indemnity (1944), the studios began cranking out crime thrillers and murder dramas with a particularly dark and venomous view of existence. I am creating a certain image of man of my own choosing. There is this in common between art and morality, that in both we have to do with creation and invention. The recognition of such limits and the responsibility for one's actions lead to an existential despair that can overwhelm the individual.

Twilight of the Idols (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2008) Nietzsche Friedrich. His indifferent behavior doesn’t escape the notice of the home’s director and caretaker. Beauty inspires aesthetic pleasure in humans. For example, by bombarding the eyes in this manner, the paintings cause them to "see" colours or shapes that are not actually there, or to confuse background with foreground and so on. Because existentialism and ethic of personal responsibility appeal to some people due to their nature, those people embrace existentialism and personal responsibility and expect others to do so.

For them, anguish arises in relation to one‟s death. Actually, things will be as man will have decided they are to be. For Christian Existentialists, existence precedes essence because man is the product of God’s intelligence. The role of facticity in relation to authenticity involves letting one's actual values come into play when one makes a choice (instead of, like Kierkegaard's Aesthete, "choosing" randomly), so that one also takes responsibility for the act instead of choosing either-or without allowing the options to have different values. [34] In contrast to this, the inauthentic is the denial to live in accordance with one's freedom.
