Meaning of EXISTENCE in English


The assertion that a thing is, not what it is as a concept of essence. For existentialists, existence is mere consciousness and precedes essence. It is like a man who finds himself existing and then by a deliberate choice and act becomes essence. See Authentic existence ; Struggle for existence ; and Self-existence
