Existentialism is a philosophy which explains the existence of an individual or a group of people and freedom or choice of life in the irrational society. The main concept is that man is all alone in the godless universe and underscores the meaninglessness and hopelessness of life. Existentialism deals with the problem of finding meaning with existence. The individual must find or create meaning for their life. Philosophers say that existentialism dates from 19th and 20th centuries and it is mainly from the continent of Europe.
