Stephan and Slaby's complementary work

Gerhard Kreuch

pp. 101-117

The third lacuna in Ratcliffe's theory of existential feelings (on their relationship to self-consciousness) is partly addressed in this chapter, by looking at Stephan's and Slaby's complementary work and comparing it to Ratcliffe's theory. They offer a classification of existential feelings with elementary existential feelings, non-elementary existential feelings and atmospheric feelings. All these three types of feeling are related to oneself, the social environment, and the world as such. Moreover, they explore how existential feelings influence our sense of ability and thus our self-consciousness.
