Existentialism: Existence precedes essence.

Essentialism: Essence precedes existence.

Darn, what I know of the subjects (mind you, which is very limited in scope largely based on hearsay from a good friend of mine who considers herself of the existentialist camp) perhaps a little of both? Haha.

Theory: Bourgeois standards of the conditions in which proletarian 'liberation' can be achieved in could be increased by them to an unreachable goal, thereby rendering the labour of the proletariat to be null in itself always henceforth as the bourgeoisie manifestation develops in response to the increasing proletarian desperation. Typically the Left considers the motivation of individuals' sustenance to be the basis of their livelihood; ergo, existentialism is correct, but the concern here is that the bourgeoisie could deprive the working class of any merit in a manner which I have mentioned prior, within a society dictated by the elites who rule the objective view in it. Should the workingmen be considered innately valuable? Truly we recognize the appreciation of their contributions, but their handlers do not. Can essentialism be the proper way? The working class comprises the most of civilization, and with its democratic decisions by it, it should declare itself as an inherently righteous entity over the capitalists. A minority of grotesque individuals among them should not be able to spoil the complacent quality of the majority.

I`m an existentialist and philosophical naturalist so I believe that existence forms naturally out of material conditions with no need for any supernatural intervention.Science demonstrates that this is possible even if a lot of laymen don`t understand how it could be.Arguments from incredulity are frankly useless in science.
