Navigating Identity Crisis: A Sartrean perspective on Existential Philosophy


Dr. Vinitha Mohan and Sheena Abraham


This study investigates the concept of identity crisis from an existential perspective informed by the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre. Through an analysis of existentialist principles such as freedom, responsibility, and authenticity, the paper explores the existential roots of identity crisis and its implications for individual self-awareness and personal development. By examining Sartre's ideas on the nature of existence and the human condition, the paper elucidates the existential dimensions of identity crisis and offers insights into how individuals can navigate this existential challenge to attain greater self-understanding and authenticity. Drawing on existential philosophy, the study underscores the importance of embracing the uncertainties of existence and taking ownership of one's identity in the face of existential crisis.
