...human existence from a Heideggerian perspective, and what relevance may this have to psychotherapy? Introduction It is often considered that the combination of psychotherapy and philosophy is uncooperative at best because of the latter’s preoccupation with theory and the former’s focus on pragmatism in relation to human life. The link however between the two approaches has increasingly been recognised (Robertson, 2010). Despite the abstract nature of philosophy and its seemingly difficult reconciliation with psychotherapy, the Hellenistic philosophical concentration on human life (eudaimonia) sought to encourage individuals to establish the beliefs they held of the world so...

...Existence and Human Error Descartes was one of the philosophers that endeavored to prove the existence of God by providing logical reasons. He provided this discussion in his works titled Meditations on First Philosophy. Descartes provided two proofs of the existence of God which are discussed and analyzed below. First proof of the existence of God given by Descartes is that; something cannot be created from nothing. It is one of the logics Descartes used to prove the existence of God. It is a logical reality that in order for something to be created, someone must create it. According to Descartes, in order for an idea to contain objective reality, it must be derived... ?

...Existence Precedes Essence Jean-Paul Sartre was a 20th century philosopher that is given primary credit for articulating the philosophy of existentialism. Broadly speaking existentialism advances a notion of human existence as void of outside meaning, wherein individuals are completely free to establish the nature of self and being. The foundational element of this philosophy is the notion that existence precedes essence. That is to say, Sartre believed that rather than the individual’s personality being an innate and genetically established event, it was a aspect of existence that was determined in the...

It rouses passion on both sides of the divide and theists and atheists have amassed a formidable array of reasons to support their respective stands. Theism continues to be relevant in the contemporary world as it impinges on our understanding of the nature and purpose of human existence.

I think this is because philosophy attempts to analyze the general and specific problems pertaining to human existence like self, values, mind, matter, reason, knowledge, existence, etc. Still, the crux of the matter is that the entities constituting the focus of the discipline of philosophy will have no relevance, in the absence of the mind that ponders upon them.
