Karl Jaspers (1883 – 1969)

German Psychiatrist – Philosopher – Points out that as we question reality, we encounter ‘boundary situations’ that natural scientific perspectives cannot transcend. It is at the limit of human knowing that we are forced to take a leap of faith – we are faced with what Jaspers termed: Existenz – as we confront our limitless freedom of possibilities and finally experience what it is to be an authentic living being.
