However, we should also recognize that there is also a long tradition of Eastern
philosophy, for example, Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism. In addition, we
need to be aware that the work of the ancients has been developed over time, in
both East and West. ... For example, Martin Heidegger wrote about “being-
towards-death,” by which he meant that death defines life to a certain extent,
insofar as the fact that we will all die one day makes us finite beings (see

The timing and circumstances of his death were utterly tragic. Having been
denied entry to the promised land, God granted him avision from Mount Nebo
only to impose the penalty of death on him immediately afterwards. His
heartbreaking end on the border triggered questions about the inevitability of
death. In attempts to come to terms with this narrative, the existential ques- tion is
directly addressed in one poem in the prayerbook for the festival of Tab- ernacles
: 'Moses died; who ...

Western reports of near-death experiences often mention light which is
experienced as a loving presence and sometimes has its origin within a religious
figure in their particular tradition. ... This strand represents an alternative and, in
philosophical terms, ultimately more influential development of Heidegger's
thought from that of Sartrean existentialism (see Sartre, JeanPaul), and finds its
most significant expression in the work of four thinkers: Georges Bataille,
Emmanuel Levinas, ...

the realities of children's lives. Existentialist thought can play a part in helping us
to do this. The traditional debate about influences on children's behavior and
development has tended to focus on the dichotomy between nature (biology) and
nurture (upbringing). Some people have extended this by arguing that it is a
matter of the interaction of nature and nurture, but in reality even this is too
simplistic a view. Biological issues are important; biology is the vehicle through
which we live ...

What may and should interest a student of comparative philosophy is the
question: If different conclusions, for metaphysies and also for a philosophy of life
, are drawn from the same analysis, what significance can the differences have
for a true metaphysies and a true philosophy of life? What light can they throw on
one another? Similarly, if different analyses can be given of the same concept,
what is the significance they can have for metaphysies and philosophy of life?

Religion both addresses deep existential concerns as well as serving as a tool
for meeting immediate needs. Guilt and death are among the most problematic
existential experiences for the individual. Religious ritual is a means for coping
with these deeply distressing experiences: If guilt, then, is an experience,
especially conducive to the manifestation of the Sacred as the mysterium
tremendum, its meaning as fascinans will come to light as it helps us deal with
guilt in all three of its ...

Therefore those few who were capable of rising to the heights of pure cerebral
activity could, in their practice of philosophy, anticipate the separation of soul
from body and, dwelling in the world of Forms, savour death's privileges: release
from cloudy emotion and bodily distractions, the untrammelled freedom of the
mind to find and follow Truth. His pupil, Aristotle, took an opposing view, and the
Western tradition since has been marked by their difference. For Plato, value
implied ...

There are unmistakable autobiographical motivations behind Badawi's
concentration on this particular aspect of Kierkegaard's life and its relation to his
overall philosophical standpoint. Badawi himself never married and devoted
much of his fairly long life to writing and translating philosophy. There are even
oblique suggestions gleaned from a poetic work he wrote entitled jj^j jj^1 [
Nymphs and Light] that he himself might have experienced an unfulfilled love
relationship with a girl he ...
