Insider’s Perspective: Because human existence is not thing-like and can therefore not be studied from a perspective of detached objectivity, existentialists believe that we can understand ourselves only by taking something like an ‘insider’s perspective.’ That is, prior to any abstract theorizing about who or what we are, we must first come to terms with the experience of being human as it is lived within the context of our own situation. Anguish is evident even when it conceals itself.

The doctrine asserts that all humans strive to forcibly impose their will upon others as a primal drive in their nature compels them to do so. Of course, such talk is, quite frankly, nonsense.

Which of the following artists is a well-known Abstract Expressionist? Simone de Beauvoir deserves special mention as a philosophical novelist who shared with Sartre this emphasis on freedom and responsibility for what one is and "what one makes of what is made of one." It is already no longer what it was, and it is not yet what it will be. Perhaps movement temporally and spatially plays into this? “We are dealing with a relation which is without parts, given at one stroke, inside of which there unfolds a spatiality which is not my spatiality; for instead of a grouping toward me of the objects, there is now an orientation which flees from me.” (p254) Because the relation is reaching toward the man-as-object, it escapes me and I am not at the centre of it.

Essay investigates the roots of the two ideologies and shows that the cardinal difference between "tough" Conservatism and "tender" Liberalism lies in the two types of human personalities. Of course, as a condition of freedom is facticity, this includes one's facticity, but not to the degree that this facticity can in any way determine one's choices (in the sense that one could then blame one's background for making the choice one made).
