So far my class has discussed Sartre’s essay, “Existentialism,” Tolstoy’s “The Death of Ivan Ilyich,” and excerpts from Barrett’s Irrational Man,. We have also discussed how the question of the meaning of life requires an assessment of the being that can even ask the question itself. Using at least one quote from each of the aforementioned texts, with particular attention to Barrett’s chapter on Heidegger, explain how a Heideggerian phenomenological appraisal of Being can frame the question of the meaning of being in a manner to more effectively attempt a response to the question of the meaning of life.
