Gabriel Marcel (1889 – 1973)

French Philosopher – Believed to have coined the term Existentialism. Marcel emphasised the mysteriousness and immensurability of existence, and the importance of fidelity and openness to the possibility of ‘communion’ with others – as well as emphasising the primacy of hope. Marcel’s philosophy still has relevance in our modern technological world – it emphasises the importance of maintaining our subjective worlds, our individuality, in the face of the annihilating pressures from scientific materialism.
