The Man as a Being

Philiosophy of Man is one of my favorite(next to logic) minor subjects these college days. It's a very interesting subject. And maybe one of the reason why i really liked and enjoyed the Philo. of Man was Father Nonoy(he's a priest). It's just that he thought very well --though his approach was philosophical and hard to understand sometimes.

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.

Whoa! You just reminded me of my college years,he,he. And what a coincidence,,,Philosophy/Logic were my faves too and our mentor was an "ex-seminarian". I don't know but there's something different about him or the subject that made me so attentive,he,he. Anyway,as for the "philosophy of man" for me it's really hard to understand. I guess it is up to any individual how he/she interprets "Man" because we can't really just define man in one sentence. But the whole idea is really quite interesting..I enjoyed reading it..
