The Riddles of Existence (2014), written by philosophers Earl Conee and Theodore Sider, with chapters on “personal identity”, fatalism, time, god, free will vs determinism, universals, seem to capture the gist outline of “existence philosophy”, in a colloquial sense.[1]

In philosophies, existence philosophy (LH:1) refers to philosophy focused on the big questions or key queries of existence, with generally centered on human existence[2], albeit in a universal sense; such as why humans exist, the nature of paths of existence, and states of being, becoming, and non-becoming in respect to existence or existence states.


Existence philosophy, according to modern hmolscience, adheres to the view that any given human "exists" for the same "reason" that any given water molecule H20 exists in the ocean, a carbon dioxide molecule CO2 exists in the air, or the solar system exists currently in a state of rotation around a black hole. Each of these things has what is called a "formation energy", which gives a basis on which to discuss states of existence of things, in respect to the naturalness or unnaturalness of a given state of existence formation.


The term "existence philosophy", according to some, is a synonym is "existentialism" (Yurkovets, 1984). The term existentialism, however, seems to have a certain amount of confused ideology and historical metaphysical baggage attached to it, for some reason? The following group, to exemplify, are the top ten existentialism philosophers, according to Google suggestions:

In this group, only Nietzsche, having based his model of human existence on chemistry (Human, All Too Human, §1: “Chemistry and the Notion of the Feelings”, 1878) and later thermodynamics (Will to Power, §:Fragments: #1066, #1067, 1888), had the only real model of existence; the others were just word babblers or verbalists (Loeb, 1918), and Kierkegaard, whose name is most-attached to "existentialism", was a god word babbler.


The following are related quotes:

Man is the nothingness of a speck of dust in the limited universe, and he is a creature of a depth capable of cognizing the universe, and of encompassing it within himself. He is both, between both.”
— Karl Jaspers (1938), Existence Philosophy (pg. 72)[3]
“Another widespread trend of modern bourgeois philosophy is existentialism, or ‘existence philosophy’, which appeared in the 1920s and is especially popular in France and West Germany. It was founded by the German idealists.”
— Ivan Yurkovets (1984), The Philosophy of Dialectical Materialism[4]
