Discover Existentialism! April 14, 2008 - June 21, 2008
Reading and Deliberating
'Existentialism is a philosophical movement that posits that individuals create the meaning and essence of their lives, as opposed to deities or authorities creating it for them.'
The group 'Existential Advocates' presents a challenge to you all. Write about your existential and intrapersonal (inside the self) issues or explore the following themes:
Alientation of individuality
Dread of mortality
Meaning of life
Time & Consciousness
The problem of fate and attempts at freedom
Anxiety of modernism
Oneness with the Cosmos
This is for Poets only, and the winner will be chosen by way of vote. Clear and simple. If you aren't sure what existentialism is still, read some Nietzsche or look it up on wikipedia (smile). There will be 5 possible badges to win (since the judgeing of this topic is especially difficult) and 2 entries for each poet.
This is the kind of contest, where just writing about these topics will take you on a journey. Good luck to all participants.
Recognition on this site, being the unofficial 'deepest thinker' @ the Writer's Cafe.
