ABSTRACT

As an existentialist philospher, I see human nature determined by the conflict between the goodness of man's essential being and the ambiguity of his actual being, his life, under the conditions of existence. The goodness of his essential nature gives him his greatness, his dignity, the demand embodied in him to be acknowledged as a person. On the other hand, the predicament in Nhich he finds himself, the estrangement from his true being, drives him into the opposite direction, preventing him from fulfilling in actual life what he essentially is. It makes all his doings, and all that which is done by him ambiguous, bad as well as good.
