  13. Existentialism
    generally focused on the condition of human existence, the nature of free will, and an individual's emotions, actions, responsibilities, and thoughts, and the meaning or purpose of life[3][4] (see below:What is existentialism?). Existential philosophers often focused more on what they believed was subjective, such as beliefs and religion, or human states, feelings, and emotions, such as freedom, pain, guilt, and regret, as opposed to analyzing objective knowledge, language, or science.

    The term "existentialism" seems to have been coined by the French philosopher Gabriel Marcel in the mid-1940s[18][19][20] and adopted by Jean-Paul Sartre who, on October 29, 1945, discussed his own existentialist position in a lecture to the Club Maintenant in Paris. The lecture was published as L'existentialisme est un humanisme, a short book which did much to popularize existentialist thought.[21]
