Reading Reaction Our class was required to read Existentialism Is a Humanism by Jean-Paul Sartre because it deals with the fundamental reason to whether or not we would believe our friends who had a “faith changing experience”. The paper argues that we as humans have complete control over who we are and our destiny and mankind’s destiny. We have this power because we define who we are by our choices. So when faced with a life changing experience, as our friends experienced in our essays, from Jean-Paul’s point of view, we as friends can either choose to see the Angel (or whatever it was) or not choose to see it. Jean- Paul also makes a point of saying that even if we choose to consult higher powers to try and help us make a difficult decision (God, Parents, etc), we are already choosing which choice we will make because we know what counsel these higher powers will give us. Therefore, when it comes to believing our friend to whether or not he/she saw “God”, in the end it is ultimately up to our choice.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
