This is not to say that all Romanticism can only have occurred in this time period. Cooper, author of Existentialism (Blackwell, 1990, 1999) and he has this to say: �� there is at least one writer who, although he is often included does not really belong on the list [of existentialists] � Albert Camus� One reason for excluding Camus is that, unlike the rest of our writers, it is not his aim to reduce or overcome a sense of alienation or separateness from the world.

Each problem requires a final product or performance that allows the learners to display their understanding. A central aspect of this theory is what I call the “indispensability thesis”: there are some projects only indirect communication can accomplish. As a study in The Journal of Positive Psychology argues, happiness is focused on the here and now. No general ethics can show you what is to be done; there are no omens in the world.

Dostoevsky's Notes from Underground details the story of a man who is unable to fit into society and unhappy with the identities he creates for himself.

This Modernist style of art emphasized spontaneous personal expression in large abstract paintings. This is not to claim that phenomenology and existentialism are not concerned with groups and social philosophy, but there is a clear belief that the individual can define the self. The ‘end of history’ suggests that when all contradictions cease then history itself will come to an end.
