Socrates as founding father of ethics[edit]

Socrates’s biography[edit]

Socrates lived in Historical Greece, in Athens. Years of his life: 469-399 BC. His father was poor and his father labored because the sculptor. Due to this fact Socrates was a supporter of democracy. Socrates was a psychologist as character kind, in addition to all creators of moral doctrines – Antisthenes, Diogenes, Aristippus and Gautama Buddha. Socrates wasn’t in a position to earn cash on life subsequently his spouse scolded him usually, however Socrates was detached to it, as to an everlasting creak of wheels. Socrates did not cost a charge from pupils for personal lectures subsequently Socrates had many pupils – Plato, Antisthenes, Aristippus and others. Socrates appreciated to go to workshops and the markets, to ask all on what dangerous or good occurred in the home at them, and Socrates appreciated to show all folks how it’s essential to dwell by the precept: if you happen to aren’t in a position to dwell itself, then it’s obligatory to show others. Socrates stated available in the market that he sees right here many issues with out which it’s attainable to dwell. Individuals beat and kicked of Socrates for his sermonizing usually, however Socrates did not take offense as, in response to him, it’s foolish to take offense at donkeys. Socrates was engaged in bodily workout routines, Socrates carried out a wholesome life-style and Socrates had good well being. Socrates participated in two unsuccessful campaigns of Athens towards Sparta the place Socrates has proved to be because the agency fighter beneath retreat of Athenian military.

Dying of Socrates[edit]

Many philosophers in contrast heroic dying of Socrates with dying of Jesus Christ. Some folks envied knowledge of Socrates subsequently this folks have accused of Socrates as soon as that Socrates does not honor gods and that Socrates brings up youth incorrectly. Trial has sentenced of Socrates to dying on this cost. Socrates behaved defiantly in trial and Socrates requested to condemn him as a substitute of an execution to participation in a lunch at their expense. Virtually all his pupils went to Socrates to jail and this his pupils persuaded of Socrates to make escape from town, however Socrates has refused as a result of Socrates was too outdated for escapes, Socrates was 70 years outdated already. Apart from Socrates believed in afterlife the place it will likely be attainable to speak with souls of clever folks. Socrates has advised to pupils the farewell speech earlier than dying, after which Socrates has drunk poison. His pupil Antisthenes have revenged for Socrates, Antisthenes identified to the visiting younger males attracted by the glory of Socrates at Socrates ‘accusers and Antisthenes stated that Socrates’s accusers had surpassed of Socrates in knowledge. It has prompted such indignation of residents of Athens that one accuser of Socrates has been executed, and one other accuser of Socrates is expelled from town.[1]

Concepts of Socrates[edit]

Socrates. was robust in rhetoric (science about eloquence). Socrates has taught to this artwork of personal finest pupil Platon who wrote the works within the type of dialogues for that reason, and Plato’s pupil Aristotle has generalized this artwork and Aristotle has created formal logic for example of vintage knowledge. Socrates has understood the primary that the bodily philosophy does not curiosity of extraordinary folks subsequently Socrates has created new department of philosophy – ethics as science about customs and advantage, as science about that’s good and that’s dangerous.[2]

Query: Why do folks do dangerous issues?

Socrates’s reply: As a result of folks haven ‘t been defined that it ‘s dangerous, you can ‘t do this.

The proper reply which was formulated by Aristotle: Socrates has appeared not the rights as a result of criminals and quick-tempered folks know they will ‘t do it, however they do it towards their explanations. Fast-tempered folks do dangerous as a result of they can not comprise their feelings. And criminals commit the crimes as a result of criminals had been introduced up in legal group the place one other criminals have impressed that to commit crimes is nice, criminals had been beneath the affect of a legal counterculture, or only a legal was born as thief.

The aim of life, in response to Socrates is an ethical self-improvement. The dispute has erupted between followers of Socrates about sense of life and the aim in life. This dispute does not stop until at the moment. Pupils of Socrates – Antisthenes and Aristippus – answered precisely the other on query about goal of life.


The primary thought of Cynicism is to make free itself. 

“Cynics” is a contemptuous nickname of representatives of philosophical faculty of pupils of Antisthenes; this nickname is translated as “dog-like”. “Cynics” had acquired this nickname for despicable life-style. The primary thought of Cynicism: that to grow to be by free and pleased, it’s obligatory to scale back personal wants earlier than the minimal stage. Instance for imitation for Diogenes of Sinope was lifetime of mouse, which doesn’t must mattress, mouse doesn’t afraid of darkish and mouse doesn’t search imaginary pleasures.[3]

Biography and fundamental concepts of Antisthenes[edit]

His years of life had been about c. 445 – c. 365 BC. Cynics had been witty folks subsequently their many sayings have comical character. On a query what lady it must be taken in wives – lovely or ugly, Antisthenes has answered: “In the event you marry a good-looking lady, she shall be frequent; if an unpleasant lady, she shall be a punishment to you”. He was requested on one event what studying was probably the most obligatory, and he replied, “To unlearn one’s dangerous habits.”. A younger man from Pontus as soon as promised to remember him, if a vessel of salt fish arrived; and so he took him with him, and likewise an empty bag, and went to a girl who bought meal, and stuffed his sack and went away; and when the lady requested him to pay for it, he stated, “The younger man can pay you, when the vessel of salt fish comes dwelling.” Antisthenes has died from tuberculosis, and the tuberculosis usually is results of dangerous meals and life within the crude room, apparently, such is a fee for freedom in his understanding.[4][5]

It’s attainable to attract a conclusion that Antisthenes has died for the sake of the concept. Antisthenes died of some illness; and whereas he was unwell Diogenes of Sinope came visiting him, and stated to him, “Have you ever no want of a pal?” As soon as too Diogenes of Sinope got here to see him with a sword in his hand; and when Antisthenes stated, “Who can ship me from this struggling?” Diogenes of Sinope, pointing to the sword, stated, “This could;” However Antisthenes rejoined, “I stated from struggling, however not from life;” for Antisthenes appeared to bear his illness the extra calmly from his love of life.

Diogenes of Sinope was lowered of personal must minimal, the truth is Diogenes of Sinope was an ideological homeless tramp and skilled beggar. Diogenes of Sinope didn’t have personal home in Athens, subsequently Diogenes of Sinope determined to dwell in clay cask “as Gin”. Diogenes of Sinope hardened personal physique with assist of chilly and warmth, as a result of there may be no of heating within the clay cask, however temperature of air falls under 0th levels Celsius in winter in Greece usually. Diogenes of Sinope cuddled to chilly bronze statues in winter, Diogenes of Sinope sunbathed on the heated sand in summer season with goal of hardening for personal physique. Diogenes of Sinope ate waste from the city’s market and Diogenes of Sinope requested the alms. He as soon as requested the alms for bronze statue; and being questioned as to his motive for doing so, he stated, “I’m practising disappointment.”

Predominant concepts of Diogenes of Sinope[edit]

Diogenes of Sinope: freedom as life goal.

As soon as Diogenes of Sinope tried to eat uncooked meat, however he couldn’t digest it. Diogenes of Sinope slept of their cloak and Diogenes of Sinope carried the bag all over the place that retailer meals in bag. Anywhere was appropriate for Diogenes of Sinope for meals, sleep and dialog. Diogenes of Sinope associated to all folks with venomous contempt. As soon as, when a person had carried out of Diogenes of Sinope into an impressive home, and had advised him that he should not spit, after hawking a bit, he spit in his face, saying that he couldn’t discover a worse place. Plato stated that Diogenes of Sinope is a mad Socrates. As soon as, whereas Diogenes of Sinope was sitting within the solar within the Craneum, Alexander the Nice was standing by, and stated to him, “Ask any favour you select of me.” And he replied, “Stop to shade me from the solar.” [6][7]


Aristippus: corporal pleasures as life goal.

Aristippus’s biography[edit]

Aristippus was born within the metropolis of Cyrene, the Greek colony on the African coast in Libya. Years of his life: 435-356 BC. Aristippus, truly, was an ideological footman. Aristippus was a person very fast at adapting himself to each type of place, and time, and particular person, and Aristippus simply supported each change of fortune. Aristippus lived on the palace of the tyrant Dionysius I of Syracuse. On which account Diogenes of Sinope used to name him the king’s canine. Dionysius I of Syracuse was that tyrant who has bought of Platon in slavery. For Aristippus loved what was earlier than him pleasantly, and he didn’t toil to acquire himself the enjoyment of what was not current. [8]

Aristippus’s sayings[edit]

As soon as when Dionysius spit at Aristippus, Aristippus put up with it; and when some one discovered fault with him, Aristippus stated, “Males endure being wetted by the ocean to be able to catch a tench, and shall not I endure to be sprinkled with wine to catch a sturgeon?” Aristyppus was as soon as asking a favour of Dionysius I of Syracuse for a pal, and when he couldn’t prevail, he fell at his toes; and when some one reproached him for such conduct, he stated, “It’s not I who am guilty, however Dionysius who has his ears in his toes.” Someday he requested Dionysius for some cash, who stated, “However you advised me {that a} clever man would by no means be in need;” “Give me some,” Aristippus rejoined, “after which we are going to talk about that time;” Dionysius gave him some, “Now then,” stated he, “you see that I don’t want cash.” As soon as Diogenes, who was washing greens, ridiculed him as he handed by, and stated, “In the event you had learnt to eat these greens, you wouldn’t have been a slave within the palace of a tyrant.” However Aristippus replied, “And also you, if you happen to had recognized the best way to behave amongst males, wouldn’t have been washing greens.” [9]


Biography of Epicurus[edit]

Years of his life:341–270 BC. Epicurus has arrived to Athens in 306 BC and Epicurus based the college which has acquired the title “Epicurus’s Backyard”, therefore the title of epicureans is “philosophers of the Backyard”. Saying hung over an entrance to the Backyard : “Stranger, right here you’ll do nicely to tarry; right here our highest good is pleasure”. Epicurus had poor well being. Epicurus known as for pleasures solely in phrases, and really Epicurus ate, usually bread and water solely, and Epicurus thought of cheese and wine as seldom obtainable luxurious. [10]

Concepts of Epicurus[edit]

Epicurus: the aim of life is a relaxation and satisfaction of elementary necessities In response to Epicurus, Gods dwell in interworld area with out influencing on destiny of individuals in any method. Subsequently, Epicurus was accused of atheism for these phrases repeatedly and after the Christianity grew to become the primary faith in Europe, works of Epicurus had been forbidden to the publication for a very long time. In response to Epicurus, pleasure consists in sustaining of peace of thoughts, satisfaction of pure and obligatory necessities, pleasure leads at first to achievement of peace of thoughts (“ataraxia”), after which to achievement of happiness (“eudaimonia”).

Subsequently, Epicurus’s philosophy has acquired in extraordinary consciousness strongly simplified interpretation — the epicurean is the one who seeks to be taught all pleasures of life, with out stopping earlier than something, for the sake of receiving corporal pleasures. Nonetheless such understanding of principle of Epicurus has nothing in frequent with Epicurus’s concepts.

Fears stop to particular person to search out total happiness subsequently the particular person has to beat these fears. Epicurus authorized senselessness of concern earlier than dying as a result of afterlife do not exists, a human soul, being materials, is mortal in addition to a physique, so it is not essential to torment itself with ideas about that shall be after dying. Epicurus appreciated extremely pleasures of personal life. Epicurus known as for aware refusal from public life. This phrases grew to become by motto of epicureans: “The clever man will attempt to dwell unnoticed”. The Roman thinker Lucretius has knowledgeable us about many ideas of Epicurus within the poetic work “On the Nature of Issues”.[11]

The primary faculties and the instructions in Historical Greek ethics:[edit]

Asceticism as restrict restriction of personal necessities. Cunics had been ascetics.

Hedonism, as aspiration to corporal pleasures. Pupils of Aristippus had been supporters of hedonism.

Eudaimonism, as aspiration to happyness. Epicureans had been supporters of an.eudemonism.

Conclusion: the extraordinary particular person has to hunt to have little of freedom and little of corporal pleasures, however on the identical time extraordinary particular person should not be humiliated as Aristippus and to not beg as Diogenes of Sinope. It is not essential to aspire to those extremes. Due to this fact Epicurus was closest to the reality concerning the goal in life, however I do not settle for passivity in lives and asceticism of Epicurus. The particular person has to wrestle with different folks and to win in struggle for wealth, status and the ability. Our society is constructed on the conflicts and management the place “the strongest survives”, and it’s unattainable to cover in “Backyard of Epicurus” from this reality. Diogenes from Sinope did not need to take part in wrestle for energy and wealth inevitable in society, Diogenes of Sinope stated that males contended with each other in punching and kicking, however that nobody confirmed any emulation within the pursuit of advantage. [12] For my part, if man do not want to take part in battle for energy and wealth beneath the pretext of preservation of private freedom, that this man dooms itself beforehand to beggarly and depressing existence. Due to this fact, most individuals are pressured to take part in conflicts, to struggle for energy and wealth, to be by controller or object of management.

Ethics of Stoicism[edit]

Course of world occasions not relies upon from the desire of human beings. As Seneca the Youthful stated: “It’s silly to make plans for all times with out being positive in tomorrow”. Exterior freedom of the particular person consists solely in cooperation with future. Seneca the Youthful stated: “Destiny leads the keen and drags alongside the reluctant”. The primary considered Stoicism: “When the Roman Empire fell and strokes of destiny poured on the particular person, the particular person had to not fall into despair, however the particular person has to maintain inner calm as a result of no person may stop these cataclysms of historical past”.

Representatives of stoicism: Zeno of Citium, Seneca the Youthful, Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius.[13]

Conclusion: I agree that it’s essential to maintain calm and to not fall right into a hysterics throughout defeats, however it’s even higher merely to have the ability to win in course of battle. In any other case, sustaining calm in the middle of defeat may be perceived by others as a great facial features at a foul recreation.

4 noble truths in ethics of Buddhism: [edit]

color manuscript illustration of Buddha teaching the Four Noble Truths, Nalanda, Bihar, India

The Buddha instructing the 4 Noble Truths. Sanskrit manuscript. Nalanda, Bihar, India.
  • Life is struggling. The beginning, an outdated age, a illness, dying – all that is struggling.
  • The rationale of struggling is a thirst of life, thirst of enjoyment, thirst of dying bringing to all to new regenerations.
  • It’s essential to eliminate this thirst of life.
  • That to eliminate thirst of life it’s essential to be engaged in meditation, that’s autosuggestion.

It’s obligatory to succeed in of situations of full coolness and indifference, Gautama Buddha named this state as nirvana. This phrase comes from the phrase “to extinguish hearth”, “pleasure”, “everlasting relaxation”, “rescue from regenerations” Nirvana is an exit from a circle of regenerations, from a struggling circle.

Conclusion: regardless of all benefit of a non secular comfort, it’s attainable to ensure that the supporter of the Buddhism is inevitably doomed to defeat in course of battle as a result of the supporter of the Buddhism has no combative qualities and need for victory utterly. The assumption that life is struggling – it’s conviction of the loser. For my part, life is struggle for existence.

Ethics of Friedrich Nietzsche[edit]

Biography. of Friedrich Nietzsche[edit]

Years of lifetime of Friedrich Nietzsche: 1844-1900. He lived in Germany.

It’s attainable to search out in his biography the next inclinations that are attribute of psychologists because the character kind:

  • literary expertise and sensible poetic fashion of compositions within the type of aphorisms,
  • curiosity to historical artwork, to Wagner’s music:, figurative pondering, Friedrich Nietzsche composed music and Friedrich Nietzsche wrote verses within the childhood.
  • inclination to social utopias, dreaminess.

Friedrich Nietzsche have inherited from the daddy dangerous well being. Friedrich Nietzsche was pursued extreme complications already within the childhood and all life (there have been no means to take away them), the illness of eyes bringing virtually to a blindness. These ailments pressured him “to face one leg in a grave”. Friedrich Nietzsche went mad in 1889 utterly, when all his works had been revealed already. Friedrich Nietzsche was pupil of Arthur Schopenhauer. The studying public handled his scientific creativity detached throughout Nietzsche ‘s life. Related concealment of Friedrich Nietzsche strongly. Friedrich Nietzsche discovered hardly of publishers for personal books. Nonetheless the public started to think about of Friedrich Nietzsche as one of the crucial nice philosophers of 19 century after his Nietzsche’s dying.[14]

“The blond beast”[edit]

“The blond beast ” is a picture of the born aristocrat to which all is allowed in struggle for energy – political homicide and the armed seizure of energy. Life is a struggle for energy, struggle with out guidelines. That to realize by energy over folks, it’s essential to be born by “the blond beast”, that’s an animal predator, a monster with a lion’s mane, the born aristocrat. Friedrich Nietzsche sings of worth of the aristocracy in lifetime of society. the aristocracy conducts of individuals from a victory to a victory on the world-wide historic area. “On the centre of all these noble races we can not overlook the beast of prey, the magnificent blond beast avidly prowling spherical for spoil and victory; this hidden centre wants launch once in a while, the beast should out once more, should return to the wild: – Roman, Arabian, Germanic, Japanese the Aristocracy, Homeric heroes, Scandinavian Vikings – on this requirement they’re all alike”. [15]

Friedrich Nietzsche denies benefit of morals and faith for the blond beast[edit]

The blond beast is a superman. The blond beast locations themselves past good and evil.[16] The blond beast need to be above morals and faith. The ethical legislation is not written for the blond beast. The blond beast can break legal guidelines of morals and spiritual requirements of habits. It’s allowed for superman to commit any crimes in struggle for energy. Friedrich Nietzsche thought of that morals and faith are dangerous for mankind as a result of it tame of man-beast with assist of morals and faith [17], as in cage of a menagerie. It flip of blond beast to a sick beast with assist of use of the repressive mechanism of concern, a beating, starvation and ache. The Christian reminds the sick, pathetic, embittered on himself beast in a cage who hates all robust and pleased round. there was a trying to find the best people of “the blond beast ” all over the place within the early Center Ages when the church was, in impact, the menagerie, so it tamed of the noble Teutons. [18] “The Christianity is an anti-Aryan faith, the Christianity is springs from a Jewish root”.[19]

Breeding of aristocratic human breed[edit]

Friedrich Nietzsche was considered one of Adolf Hitler’s lecturers. Adolf Hitler thought of of Germans as Grasp race and Adolf Hitler have proclaimed coverage of racial hygiene, that’s coverage of synthetic choice and extermination of Untermenschen. that’s Jews, Roma, and Slavs – primarily Poles, Serbs, and later additionally Russians in fuel chambers and focus camps. Adolf Hitler thought of bodily extermination of Jews as last determination of a Jewish drawback. Friedrich Nietzsche wasn’t so categorical and Friedrich Nietzsche known as a caste system for example for imitation as a method of the breeding of a specific race and sort. [20] The caste system in India had been constructed on the premise of spiritual legal guidelines of Manu. Right here the duty is ready, to breed 4 breeds of individuals, 4 castes and to wrestle with not nonbred males – “chandala” (untouchable males).[21]

Essential relation of Friedrich Nietzsche in the direction of democracy[edit]

“The blond beast”, the superman should not be afraid of solitude as a result of concern of solitude is a herd intuition [22]. In response to Friedrich Nietzsche, Democracy was all the time the declining type of organizational pressure. Friedrich Nietzsche sings of merciless will and absolutely the energy of the monarch. If it will is there, one thing just like the imperium Romanum [Roman Empire] is based—or like Russia, the one energy that has bodily endurance at the moment, that may wait, that may nonetheless promise one thing—Russia, the antithesis of the pathetic European petty-state nonsense and nervousness.[23]

Сriticism of the concepts of Friedrich Nietzsche:[edit]

For my part, the place of “blond beast” is in jail as a result of it’s essential to topic to legal prosecution for homicide and the armed seizure of energy of any citizen regardless of whether or not he considers himself as born aristocrat or not. Political homicide of the governor and the armed seizure of energy had been admissible beneath tyranny, however the free multi-party elections are solely admissible method of struggle for energy after an invention and institution of consultant democracy. Consultant democracy is healthier than tyranny.

The second mistake of Friedrich Nietzsche consisted in denial of profit of faith and morals. All folks have to watch legal guidelines of morals, folks really feel contempt to violators of those legal guidelines and other people apply ethical sanctions to this violators. For instance, exercise of political tyrants and usurpers of the state energy causes ethical censure. The good thing about faith consists in upbringing and a comfort of individuals. The caste system cannot be an instance for imitation for contemporary society as a result of the caste system is constructed on a powder keg, that’s the caste system is pregnant by revolution and a rebel. The caste system switches off technique of vertical mobility and the caste system limits authorized types of the battle for the ability, wealth and the social standing between representatives of the very best and lowest castes unreasonably that leads, on the one hand, to a rebel of the bottom castes, and, then again, to degeneration of the very best castes.

Existentialism about inside world of the particular person, about inner freedom and accountability of the character[edit]

Mona Lisa, by Leonardo da Vinci
Painting of Sisyphys by Titian

Existential philosophy (from the English phrase – “existence”) was developed of such European thinkers and writers as Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855), Karl Jaspers (1883-1969), Martin Heidegger (1889-1976), Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980), Albert Camus (1913-1960). All of them had been by psychologists because the character kind removed from necessities of actual life.

The height of affect of existentialism falls on years after the tip of World Struggle II and proceeds till the tip of the 60th. The existentialism was probably the most influential path in philosophy at the moment among the many finding out youth and representatives of humanitarian professions – writers, actors, artists. The affect of existentialism started to fall quickly after a wave of left-wing youth actions rocked Europe within the 1960s. Jean-Paul Sartre, for instance, participated in youth demonstrations straight and Jean-Paul Sartre was as peculiar dwell flag for youth. The Minister of Inside Affairs requested from the President of the nation Charles de Gaulle concerning the sanction for arrest of the aged and sick insurgent Jean-Paul Sartre, however The Minister of Inside Affairs has acquired the worthy reply from Charles de Gaulle: You do not arrest Voltaire’.

From the perspective of existentialism, every particular person is exclusive, utterly internally free and unbiased. Tough future of particular person – to be all the time in approach to discovering of the which means of life on this absurd mindless world. The existentialism rejects dependence of the particular person from Expertise and economic system. The protest was expressed in existentialism towards timeserving of philistines who grew to become by “small screws” of bureaucratic equipment. The true which means of life opens to the particular person in the course of the durations of the deepest shocks, earlier than the face of dying, a critical sickness, not washed away guilt when the world of his deeply intimate existence opens earlier than him. Every particular person bears by accountability for personal actions.

It’s attainable to clarify the tough philosophical concepts of existentialism on the premise of tales and novels of Albert Camus. This thinker was born within the French colony – Algeria. Albert Camus has died throughout highway accident. Names of his best-known works is “The Stranger”, “The Fable of Sisyphus”, “The Misunderstanding” “The Plague”, “The Insurgent”, “The Fall “. The views of Albert Camus developed in situations when the religion in God and in immortal soul is misplaced and it has grow to be clear that the particular person is predicted elimination after dying. Thus, the particular person has misplaced which means of life. His hero Meursault within the novel “The Stranger” is a small worker who is totally detached to personal profession, to personal mom, to personal spouse. However Meursault is sincerely in love with the character – to the ocean, to the air and to the solar. This monotonous life was damaged as soon as. Meursault kills of Arab on the seashore from a revolver for no motive in any respect. Meursault is unanimously sentenced to dying in court docket as a result of Meursault is not comparable in any respect to philistines who decide him. Meursault is detached to the decision of the court docket. If we’re doomed to dying, that life is mindless – right here ‘s fundamental considered Meursault. [24]

The identical thought repeats within the novel “The Fable of Sisyphus”. Gods have sentenced of Sisyphus to ineffective work. The destiny of at the moment’s employee reminds Sisyphus’s destiny. If the particular person has to die whether or not then it’s price residing? The query about suicide is a very powerful philosophical query in existentialism. We feature out the monotonous and boring duties daily at work and at dwelling as automated machines, however a query arises as soon as: “Why I would like it?”. After that consciousness wakens that leads both to suicide, or to restoration.[25]

Accoding to the play of Albert Camus “The Misunderstanding” motion occurs within the lodge situated in mountains. Affairs is run on this lodge in order that the hostess of lodge and its daughter kill and plunder by all wealthy lodgers whom has managed to remain at their lodge. The hostess’s son was their sufferer as soon as, this son wasn’t at dwelling a few years . The daughter of the hostess has managed to persuade of spouse of the killed son that if every particular person is doomed to dying, then it’s not relevant when this dying comes.[26]

The destiny of tyrant is represented within the play “Сaligula”. Caligula was very respectable younger man at first of his life, however the sudden dying of Drusilla, his sister and lover adjustments his character sharply. The despair opens for him the reality that there is no such thing as a reality, the nice and evil on this planet subsequently Caligula is free to do something for the reason that energy of the emperor is boundless. Caligula begins to create an arbitrariness and wild abuses beneath folks. Caligula was killed by conspirators after a number of years of his ruling. Caligula understands earlier than dying that he has chosen not that method, “as a result of it’s unattainable to be free towards different folks”. [27]

Accoding to the novel “Plague” the scene of motion is town of Oran the place plague epidemic flashes. Troops isolate town from the surface world. Small group led by physician Bernard Rieux start struggle towards plague. The priest of native church declares of plague as God’s penalty and the priest calls to humility. Finally, epidemic of plague begins to recede, however epidemic of plague will come up once more typically.[28]

Conclusion: The existentialism has lifted an issue of which means of life and admissibility of suicide beneath the absence of this which means of life. For my part, which means of life consists in reaching of self-realization. In response to the hero from the film “Kidnapping, Caucasian Fashion!”, the which means of life consists that it want to dwell nicely. Supreme which means of life do not exist and supreme which means of life cann’t exist in precept. Life is a struggle by the precept “Solely the Strongest Will Survive” and a pure choice exists amongst individuals of this struggle. Suicide is a capitulation of the loser or particular person of no character within the face of pure issues and difficulties of this struggle. Suicide is the primary improper exit from very important issues. The second improper approach to get out of the struggle is using medicine by the precept “It want die with pleasure”. Due to this fact each suicide and medicines – it’s dangerous.

My relation to existentialism is skeptical for such motive that this principle grew to become substantiation for varied countercultures like hippie, bohemianism and substantiation for extremism in coverage. The motion of hippie has acknowledged protest towards a philistine lifestyle and the motion of hippie set the aim to be nearer to the character, that’s to dwell in a hut within the jungle of India on the ocean coast as “Flower Youngsters”, to go bare and with lengthy hair, to make use of medicine and to hearken to psychodelic music. For my part, the motion of hippie is the motion of losers who had been psychologists because the character kind most frequently, psychologists cannot discover the place and a career inside a contemporary technical civilization and psychologists dream to return to primitive society, however it is not attainable in precept. Psychologists dream to prepare a mindless revolt in coverage as Albert Camus supplied.

Jean-Paul Sartre veered randomly between the totally different political actions – Jean-Paul Sartre adjoined to the anti-Communist Revolutionary-democratic motion (center class), Jean-Paul Sartre has visited the us and Jean-Paul Sartre introduced Marxism as “philosophy of our time”, then Jean-Paul Sartre was keen on the Cuba’s communism of Fidel Castro and Mao Zedong’s concepts, Jean-Paul Sartre started to oppose towards communism of the “Soviet” pattern and towards “eurocommunism” as a result of the French communists had been afraid to prepare revolution and a revolt in France. Jean-Paul Sartre urged to prepare “cultural” revolution in Europe by an instance of China, to burn image “Mona Lisa” and to burn of professors of the colleges. Thus, Jean-Paul Sartre supplied many nonsense and Jean-Paul Sartre has proven the total incompetence in a political sphere.
