The "alter ego" refers to the opposite personality that exists as a complement to each person. Consequently, he found himself confronted by two very different modes of action; the one concrete, immediate, but directed towards only one individual; and the other an action addressed to an end infinitely greater, a national collectivity, but for that very reason ambiguous – and it might be frustrated on the way.

The one area of his mature work in which the most eloquent thing about his figures is their actions in space is the bull-fighting prints - the most commercial of his subject-pictures - and here, by way of compensation, he makes it fairly plain that for him the hero is the bull. "In spite of all he owes to Rembrandt and Velázquez, and in spite of his being a highly visual painter, the dramatically telling attributes of his subject-pictures tend to be attributes characteristic of primitive and archaic art-forms - the suggestive eloquence of impersonal shapes and the vivid representation of an isolated organ of the body; and also the creation of hybrids of man and beast.

It is not the most accomplished or successful novel of the existential movement, nor even the most fully realized literary work that Sartre himself produced, but this novel has particular characteristics, both in its technique and in its historical situation, that identify it with Existentialism in a way that other works lack. In his autobiography, The Words, Sartre admits a moment of childhood existential revelation which reveals that the seeming innocuousness of Kierkegaard's comments in reality is not so: At the very moment when [I was convinced] that nothing exists without a reason. .. my own reason for being slipped away; I would suddenly discover that I did not really count.. ..

A quick one or two-sentence definition of a word is not enough for me to then comfortably use that word for the next 8 pages, or again 80 pages later. I yawn, the tears roll down my cheeks, I feel them. I leave aside, as too vast a subject for an article, the question whether existentialism is justified in discarding objective moral standards as are provided by philosophies such as those of Aristotle, Kant or Mill.

If I am counting upon a visit from a friend, who may be coming by train or by tram, I presuppose that the train will arrive at the appointed time, or that the tram will not be derailed. Of course, these statements are illogical, which I demonstrate in the paper " Refuting relativism ."

Yalom states that Aside from their reaction against Freud's mechanistic, deterministic model of the mind and their assumption of a phenomenological approach in therapy, the existentialist analysts have little in common and have never been regarded as a cohesive ideological school. Thus, the concept of man in the mind of God is comparable to the concept of paper-cutter in the mind of the manufacturer, and, following certain techniques and a conception, God produces man, just as the artisan, following a definition and a technique, makes a paper-cutter.

It is the resulting interplay that brings Hannah's humor sparkling to the surface. Refusal to rule on the existence of objects.
