Huh? Existential that I like ice cream?
Or are you commenting on what you included along with ice cream that I DIDN'T
comment on? And if you think JPS invented existentialism to "pick up
girls", that's a noble thought! When I was an undergraduate so few men
were familiar with JPS; however, the "idea" of meeting someone literate was
always an objective of mine. Actually several of my college "friends"
were if the scholarly type only I chose to move to California. Was that
ever a mistake!

Gerry, I think that is very existential. (The Ice Cream) A
lot of stuffy people here. I've found little sense of humor. I do like reading
some of the posts that are actually related to existentialism. One person
filtered me out after my second post because I did not meet her requirements,
and definition of "intellectual." I am existential to the bone. You are going
to find a lot of really serious, really well thought out stuff here, very
interesting things. I seldom post, but I do read almost all of the posts.
Although I admire JPS very much, and pretty much a member of his school of
thought...I do think he was a very original thinker in most ways, and believe
that he deserved the Nobel he turned down...I honestly think that he invented
his brand of existentialism to pick up girls...at this point a lot of people
are hitting the notify AOL Button...which I know because I was notified by
AOL. Some do not understand that an existentialist will argue his position
rather than discuss it. Some find intensity offensive. Some fail to understand
that there may be literary trickery at play here. Let me tell you though, you
will like and respect the Moderator...he knows his stuff. Am I allowed to use
words like "stuff " here? Can I use phrases like, "pretty much?" Am I out of
line because I think that existentialism as per Sartre is pretty much straight
forward stuff that can be under-felt, and over
