Humanism Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus—Existentialism is Humanism, 1945 In creating ourselves, we also construct a mandate for what we want the rest of the world to be. In fashioning myself I fashion man. (Kantian categorical imperative)
“Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny”: Freud, Ego & Id, 1923 the development of an organism (ontogeny) expresses all the intermediate forms of its ancestors throughout evolution (phylogeny). Freud adopted this idea and applied to psychoanalysis
Positivism Weber, The Vocations, 1918 the only authentic knowledge is that which is based on actual sense experience-EMPIRCISM!! Weber inverts this in his sociology by purporting “ideal types” and generalizable social ideas in society.
The “oceanic” Freud, Civilization and its Discontents 1930 the feeling of belonging and some greater essence out there. Hearkens to the womb in Freud’s earlier psychology; total comfort and meaning in the universe etc.
“The whole is the false” Lukacs part of critical theory. Implies the danger of striving for a totality, because that promotes the lie of full social harmony – which was the very idea promoted by capitalism when it tried to defuse revolutionary energy.

Parole/Langue Saussure, Course in Linguistics, published posthumously in 1915 “Langue” refers to the abstract that is internalized by a given speech community “parole” is the individual act of speech Transvaluation of values
Authenticity Heidegger- Being and Time says that normally we are very artificial with regards to other people, that we follow social norms instead of focusing on how we should be. If we were more accepting of our "throwness", less obsessed with finding a grounding to our lives—more authentic.
Presence Derrida- Structure, Sign and Play claim is that an obsession with presence has led to a preference for speech to writing in philosophy/anthropology. Writing is by nature ambiguous, better allows for a deconstructive play between signs.
