Existenz Menu


is an online journal in philosophy devoted to research and publication in philosophy, religion, politics, and the arts.  The title of this journal is inspired by the writing of Karl Jaspers and his notion of philosophizing on the grounds of possible Existenz (mõgliche Existenz), by which he meant philosophical thinking that might elucidate the meaning of human experience and existence.
