      Existentialism began as a repudiation of abstract rationalism.I would
      paraphrase your statement to: Existentialism claims the meaningfulness
      of living and dying for a human individual and seeks an apprehension
      of it as a normal activity. "Comprehension" is dialectical and
      inevitably an illusion. "Purposelessness" is a matter of salt, and
      often sand.
