      Question Essentialism vs. Existentialism

      "Essentialism": A belief that things have a set of characteristics that make them what they are, & that the task of science and philosophy is their discovery & expression; the doctrine that essence is prior to existence

      "Existentialism":A philosophical theory or approach, that emphasizes the existence of the individual person as a free & responsible agent, determining their own development through acts of the will.

      Which do you believe in, & why?
      Beyond this, what is your preferred theory to existence (specific that is) ?

      Note: Please, ask any & all questions you may have, or debate this. Seeing as this is one of my favorite subjects.
      Assuming I exist.

      If this was explained in simpler terms I might have been able to answer.

      I am sorry, but I would not be comfortable attempting to re-define these terms.
      If I did so, I might create an improper definition, & therefore invalidate my own question .

      I'm going with Existentialism. I believe that people, and 'things' to be whatever they want to be. I'm not a big fan of "destiny" and Essentialism sounds too much like that.
