Honors 11: Introduction to Existentialism

We began semester 2 by introducing our first unit: Existentialism. We briefly glanced over this calendar for the unit, and I then talked us through this power point of introduction while you took notes (I checked these in for points). We will continue tomorrow. I also gave you this 1939 short story by Jean Paul Sartre, titled “The Wall.” Read and annotate as needed with an eye to existentialist threads throughout for tomorrow–use this handout (pg. 3 specifically) for the major ideas of existentialism.
