Greetings fellow travellers through this world of ours.

This thread is one of a number of threads to discuss different perspectives people have of the world.  These perspecitives are called WorldViews.  My purpose in starting this series is to understand each others perspectives so I'm keen for you to fill out or correct the detail in the WorldView that correlates most closely with your perspective, or if you don't think there is one that matches you then start another.

This thread here explains whats going on:  http://tromboneforum.org/index.php/topic,101685.0.html

And the questions that I think give a good start to characterising the WorldViews are in item 15 of that thread.  (How do you link to a thread item?)

So here is what I think the WorldView: WorldView: Atheistic Existentialism is.

God/ultimate reality:
   • Two disunited forms objective (matter) and subjective (myexperience of freedom).
Cosmos/prime reality:
   • Consists of objective “essences” which are governed by nature’s law and logic.
   • Absurd.
Humans:
   • Existence precedes essence (for humans alone).
   • Man free to define himself.
   • Alienated from the world.
Knowledge/revelation:
   • Objective knowable by logic and science.
   • Self removed from analysis.
Ethics:
   • Humans must “revolt” against absurdity and create value.
   • Good actions are those that are consciously and freely chosen.
Death:
   • Undeniable absurdity.
   • Face it boldly as the final exercise of revolt.
History:
   • World history is meaningless.
   • Temporary individual meaning may arise through choices and personal encounters.
