However, we should also recognize that there is also a long tradition of Eastern
philosophy, for example, Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism. In addition, we
need to be aware that the work of the ancients has been developed over time, in
both East and West. ... For example, Martin Heidegger wrote about “being-
towards-death,” by which he meant that death defines life to a certain extent,
insofar as the fact that we will all die one day makes us finite beings (see

The timing and circumstances of his death were utterly tragic. Having been
denied entry to the promised land, God granted him avision from Mount Nebo
only to impose the penalty of death on him immediately afterwards. His
heartbreaking end on the border triggered questions about the inevitability of
death. In attempts to come to terms with this narrative, the existential ques- tion is
directly addressed in one poem in the prayerbook for the festival of Tab- ernacles
: 'Moses died; who ...

figure in their particular tradition. ... This strand represents an alternative and, in
philosophical terms, ultimately more influential development of Heidegger's
thought from that of Sartrean existentialism (see Sartre, JeanPaul), and finds its
most significant expression in the work of four thinkers: Georges Bataille,

the realities of children's lives. Existentialist thought can play a part in helping us
to do this. The traditional debate about influences on children's behavior and
development has tended to focus on the dichotomy between nature (biology) and
nurture (upbringing). Some people have extended this by arguing that it is a
matter of the interaction of nature and nurture, but in reality even this is too
simplistic a view. Biological issues are important; biology is the vehicle through
which we live ...

What may and should interest a student of comparative philosophy is the
question: If different conclusions, for metaphysies and also for a philosophy of life
, are drawn from the same analysis, what significance can the differences have
for a true metaphysies and a true philosophy of life? What light can they throw on
one another? Similarly, if different analyses can be given of the same concept,
what is the significance they can have for metaphysies and philosophy of life?

guilt in all three of its ...

These archetypal characterizations of a divided self provide examples of how the
shadow can break away from the conscious personality to have a dark evil life of
its own. In ancient Western traditions and throughout Eastern mythology, the
opposites contained in the archetypes remained united and full of
inconsistencies, but over time a division took place. This is particularly noted in
the Jewish deity, Yahweh, who contained both light and dark aspects, but
