Philiosophy of Man obviously talks about man perse, the human being who seeks to find meaning in his life.
This article aims to share with you some of the most important things I've learned in my Philosophy of Man subject. Things that inspired me and gave me strength to face the world.
Man is the summit of God’s creation, the most special being in the world. He is the only rational being who exists, has intellect or the capacity to understand things. Being a rational being man has his own free will to do what he wants to do…and this free will is in accordance with his capacity of being a human.
Man is the only kind of being that exists and he is conscious of his existence. He is finite, not perfect and has limitations. Man is existing into the world with a sense of purpose and direction. He is the initiator of all actions and the center of feelings and emotions, capable to love and get hurt. The perfection or completion of man’s existence is death.
Man’s life is a journey. He makes history into the world for he is the only being who can define what history is. His life is full of experiences such as pains, struggles and happiness. All those things are necessary in order for him to understand and appreciate the meaning of life…and suffering makes man improve and find betterment in his life.
Being a man in this world is not easy (fyi) because you have to comply with all the gifts you have as being a human. If you fail to, you defeat the purpose of being a human. Thus, to be called a man is to act like a human being should be acting.
