- Existentialism - 846 words
Existentialism When the word "existentialism" is mentioned, what comes to mind? Lack of faith? Secular beliefs? It is a belief in living life. Could it be any simpler than that? Existentialists believe in free will, making choices, and living with those consequences. This is not some kind of weird "hippy" philosophy; it makes sense. Existentialistic thought is predominately a 20th century revelation. As a philosophy, it states that man possesses free will over his fate and the direction he wants his life to take. Those who follow this believe they are in a world that does not always make sense, a world that is filled with uncertainty where well-intended actions can become obscure and chaotic ...

... nce, that large cities were marvelous places where only wealth existed; and everything I heard about them from other people confirmed that belief.

- Martin Luther King And Malcolm X Two Views, One Cause - 1,139 words
Martin Luther King and Malcolm X - Two Views, One Cause Many black authors and leaders of the sixties shared similar feelings towards the white run American society in which they lived. Malcolm X, James Baldwin, Martin Luther King, and Stokely Carmichael all blamed the whites for the racism which existed. However, they agreed that it was up to the black society to end this problem. Using the black society, each of the authors had their own idea of how racism could be stopped. Unfortunately, for some, such as Malcolm X, this involved the use of violence, while others, such as King, favored the non-violent approach. This paper will focus, for the most part, on Malcolm X and King because they a ...

... images of dirty-mouthed hippies taunting the brave, clean-cut American soldiers who confronted the unruly demonstrators (VN H. and P.).

... the expectation of Estragon and Vladimir (SGSB, 44). Characterization is another tool implemented to the end of absurdism. The quarreling couple, Vladimir and Estragon have complementary personalities. Vladimir is more masculine or Apollonian: practical, persistent, serious and strong. Estragon is more feminine or Dionysian: a poet, volatile, dreaming, skeptical and weak. At times, through their incessant bickering, it is suggested that they disunite. Yet it is the differences in their natures that make them highly compatible, to the point that one is incomplete without the other. Beaten up by mysterious strangers every night, Estragon is protected by Vladimir who sings him to sleep with ...
