The Realm of Existentialism, located at DividingLine.com, features an indepth look at the attributes of the existentialist school of thought and Existentialism as an ultra-modern philosophical movement. This site offers the basics of existentialism, pros and cons of existentialism, phenomenology and its relation to existentialism, existentialism through selected quotations, and probes over twenty minds of existentialism from literature, philosophy, psychology and poetry. DividingLine.com does not contain the "Meaning of Life" -- but, we're working on it. :) --Katharena Eiermann
The message of existentialism, unlike that of many more obscure and academic philosophical movements, is about as simple as can be. It is that every one of us, as an individual, is responsible—responsible for what we do, responsible for who we are, responsible for the way we face and deal with the world, responsible, ultimately, for the way the world is.
It is, in a very short phrase, the philosophy of 'no excuses!' We cannot shift that burden onto God, or nature, or the ways of the world. --Professor Robert Solomon
The Dukan Diet: What Is It? --Often described as the French version of the Atkins Diet, the Dukan Diet emphasizes meals that are high-protein, low-carb, and low-fat. The diet is designed so that you won’t feel hungry — you can choose from 100 different foods and you're allowed to eat as much of them as you want — and you don’t have to count calories. Its biggest draw is its pronto weight-loss promise: that you can lose up to seven to 10 pounds in the first five days — and keep them off. --from EverydayHealth.com
What are they saying about the Realm of Existentialism?
This resource provides an overview of existentialism and phenomenology, and includes information on an extensive range of existentialist writers, poets, psychologists, and philosophers. The site is primarily aimed at those hitherto unacquainted with the basics of existentialism and phenomenology, and offers helpful summary definitions of the two schools of thought, as well as elementary accounts of some of their essential themes. (Definitions and explanations are illustrated throughout by quotations taken from primary existentialist sources.) The site also features an inventory of canonical figures in the history of existentialism, a selection of quotations from each of these, and a bibliography of recommended further reading. The site is well presented and very easy to use. --Daniel Came, University of Oxford Faculty of Philosophy
