The Dimensions of Human Existence

Samuel Macabinlar



Philosophy is a human predicament and in the end should be at the service of man and the whole life. A philosophy that is not in   the service of human kind and human existence is not at all philosophy. It is the mystery of life with its anxiety, hopes and fears that lead man to philosophy. It is impossible to live rationally without knowing how good it is to live. If philosophy is not at the service of humanity, for what purpose does it have? For whom can this be devised? (Agustin Basave Fernandez del Valle 1967:12)
