Points of view have no absolute truth or validity, having only relative, subjective value according to differences in perception and consideration. Principles and ethics are regarded as applicable in only limited context.
Knowledge of anything outside one’s own specific mind is unjustified. The external world and other minds cannot be known and might not exist.
Moral worth of an action is determined solely by its usefulness in maximizing utility as summed among all sentient beings. Humans should act in order to achieve the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people.
Life without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value. Morality does not inherently exist and any established moral values are abstractly contrived. Knowledge is not possible and some aspects of reality do not exist as such.
Events withing a given paradigm are bound by causality in such a way that any state of an object or event is determined by prior states. Every type of event, including human cognition (behavior, decision, and actions) is causally determined by previous events.
Individual is solely responsible for giving his or her own life meaning and for living that life passionately and sincerely, dealing with his or her conditions, emotions, actions, responsibilities and thoughts.
The only authentic knowledge is that which is based on sense, experience and positive verification. Scientific method is the best approach to uncovering the processes by which both physical and human events occur.
A good list. Existentialism is so very french in it’s nature. It is almost upsetting how many of it’s philosophers originated from there.
