I became one at 16 after spending birthday money from my granny on Jean-Paul Sartre’s Nausea. Among the few exceptions were the two most famous, Sartre and his companion Simone de Beauvoir, who accepted the label mainly because they grew tired of telling people not to call them it.
Garcin is having an existential crisis, as people tend to do in Sartre. the Big Question: how to deal with life's apparent meaninglessness?.
Do you run from or embrace uncomfortable, existential questions? It's never too late or too early to create a more meaningful life.
