"Yes .. your slogan is astounding in a positive way. 
I agree with your opinion that 'existence' is nothing but actualising freedom so as to create something good from the conditions that are already there, but not ex nihilo. Your assertion that…"

"It is quite an astounding idea to sloganeer as 'through the capability of freedom, man is forced to go to root ....'
Now the issue focuses on how to be capable of exercising freedom. Human life is as such ridden with instinctual compulsions like…"

I agree with Michael Fisher and Jha in their observation that the thinkers of olden days didn’t seem to utilise sufficiently fear element to navigate through the issues of life and living in the society even though they paid heed to fearlessness in…

"Yes, I agree that we can see two different approaches to world ie scientific and existential. If we replace world with life itself, we can as well apply both the approaches to life. Scientific approach is like leading life through mind ( logic,…"

"I think, Rafael, that Sartre's and Jaspers' existence is almost similar but they seem to differ in later part ie Sartre's essence and Jaspers' existenz. Rather here, I see Jaspers's model is reminding me of Freudian triad of id (instinctual), ego…"

"Correct... you have nailed it. I am referring to physical/materialistic aspect of existence. I haven't read Jaspers. I will. Thank you Rafael."

"What you say is true ... Marx didn't talk about existence but it is implied. His view of exploitation and surplus value refer to the fact that the worker is left with minimum wages that could merely sustain his survival and the difference value of…"

"True.. as you said, though Sartre was a great fan of Marxism, his subsequent metaphysical ideas might have proved detrimental to orthodox communism in the sense that Sartre emphasised on individual freedom and responsibility whereas communism aimed…"

"I am just trying to find out the link between Sartre's existence and Marx's struggle for existence. As we are aware, Sartre was an ardent fan of Marx. That way, his thought might have at least partly, if not fully, been influenced by Marxian…"

"I agree with you Rafael. Actually, I am trying to apply Sartre's existentialism to Marxian economic determinism. I am also exploring the role of Darwinian struggle for existence vis-a-vis David McClelland's achievement motivation to analyse as to…"

"True, essence is not an economic affair. Existence refers to basic survival. Karl Marx emphasised on economic determinism. To counter communist ideology, the western capitalist nations enunciated basic minimum wages and social security measures.…"

"Good proposition. But essence need not necessarily become the goal or purpose of life unless existence is assured safety from the vagaries of insecurity and uncertainty. It might be possible in case of some but some can persistently be immersed in…"

"Correct Rafael. I have already mentioned that Hobbes was influenced by theistic principles. People's sovereignty does not necessarily need to lead towards totalitarian form of rule. This problem arises only in case of such democracies where the…"
