The Existentialists invented the word ‘angst’ and have much to say about the troubles and aspirations of the modern soul. Their starting point is that traditional societies used to tell you how to live but that nowadays, we have to make it all up for ourselves - this is both exhilarating and a terrible burden. The Existentialists talk a lot about freedom and anxiety, and are especially concerned with how we can cope with the pressure to make the right choices in our lives, and help us to be compassionate observers of ourselves.
