We are in terra incognita, which is where we always are anyway, but usually we have a milder case of it and can make our pronouncements and stumble along. Existentialist writers give us a sense of how we might imagine dwelling in not knowing—beyond resignation or cynicism, and beyond false promises of salvation.

While existentialist thinking has much wisdom to offer about anxiety, contingency, and death, we must also think concretely about politics and institutions.

We'd like to pass the old folk songs that we like and the old songs that we like in the old days, and let them pass the Bet 4-chome.

The thread running through all these appeals to existentialism is a sensitivity to human fragility felt to be especially pertinent in the midst of a global pandemic and stark disruptions of social order. Even Jürgen Habermas, not typically thought of as an existentialist philosopher, said in a recent interview that we have never had so much knowledge about our non-knowledge and about the necessity to act and live in conditions of uncertainty. As the writer Rebecca Solnit describes it

I love existentialism, especially in the kind of Albert Camus... This school of philosophy I think will never die... And now in 2020 amid so many social & human crisis, this way of thought seems to be born again... We all have to set in our mind that Existence is always precede essence...👍💓

each articulates a form of distraction that blinds us to our freedom. One reason we define ourselves and others on the basis of class, religion, race, and nationality, or even childhood influences and subconscious drives
