Existential experiences. Marking borders, opening meaningful issues

    Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentationScientific


    Anthropology can still serve as point of departure for a moral common ground – if we consider the essence of humankind. Existential experiences are those experiences which totally question or totally confirm a person. As such, they testify about what the human being is and call for a non-reductive view of the human person.
    Negative existential experiences mark the boarders, we have to keep in order to not destroying a person; positive existential experiences show us what a person can be under ideal conditions. Though, anthropology is deeply questioned in the last decennia, this existential phenomenological reflection informs us about the essence of humanity. From this phenomenological analyses, main values can be gained which constitute a morally orientated community but also shape the acting towards nature. Forming a moral attitude will be necessary for living together in a peaceful and sustainable way.
