I just got out of class and I didn't get to ask a couple burning questions I had, maybe some of you can help me. 1. If existentialists were concerned about leading a first-hand life, how did they deal with societal pressures and laws. 2. Can we really live an authentic existential life. For example, if I have a problem, in the whole world of possibility say there are 4 solutions. However, in our narrow lives we can't know all possibilites so say I am only aware of 2. I pick one that I feel is best for me, however in reality of all solutions one of the two that I didn't know would have been best for me. So we can only live the best and most truthful life with the limited resources we have, but does that fufil the ideal existential life?
