Existentialism"Existence precedes essence" (a phrase coined by twentieth century French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre) is perhaps the best way to describe existentialism. Although there are several different forms of existentialism, the one thing they all have in common is their belief that there is no ultimate truth or that there is but humans can never fully grasp it--the former view being much more popular today.
