First, in true (what really IS true, anyway?) existential form, define your existence by posting a question for your classmates to answer related to the reading/research about existentialism that you have conducted the last several days. This is a question that your classmates can answer to show THEIR understanding of the term and to reflect their personal beliefs on the discussion topic.
Secondly, after all questions have been posted, choose TWO (2) to which to respond. Respond completely, sincerely, and effectively.
Thirdly, as the writer of the question, react to those bloggers who have responded to your question. Indicate whether the blogger has understood the concepts you are referencing and decide if the blogger’s answer is a valid one.
