Lucrurile se precipită, dar într-un mod ciudat. Chiar dacă noile generații de adulți amână totul - casă, mașină, familie, îmbrăcatul la costum - de unde și denumirea de adolescenți întârziați - când vine vorba de crize existențiale, se schimbă situația. Nu mai vorbim de criza vârstei de mijloc ci, de câțiva ani, a apărut un nou concept: criza vârstei de un sfert.
În caz că viața voastră e departe de crize de orice fel, salvați materialul ăsta pentru anii care vin. Dar dacă aveți anxietăți în legătură cu sensul vieții și ziua de naștere e acompaniată cu întrebări de genul ”ce am făcut eu până acum?”, e bine să știți că nu sunteți singuri. Chiar și Elon Musk s-a confruntat cu o astfel de criză.
Mai jos, câteva explicații și teorii de la oameni deștepți.

Heidegger & Modern Existentialism
William Barrett discusses Heidegger and Existentialism with Bryan Magee in this 1978 interview. Existentialists take human existence and the human condition to be a fundamental issue. They tend to be radical individualists who privilege our lived experience and the passions. They focus on themes such as: freedom, authenticity, anxiety/angst/dread, alienation, death, the absurd, and nihilism. They are often suspicious of any fixed human nature and objective/universal values. Some of the most important existentialist thinkers include Jean-Paul Sartre, Martin Heidegger, Søren Kierkegaard, Friedrich Nietzsche, Dostoyevsky, Albert Camus, Karl Jaspers, and Simone de Beauvoir.
