Word:

existentialism

ex`is`ten´tial`ism
n.1.(Philosophy) a philosophical theory or attitude having various interpretations, generally emphasising the existence of the individual as a unique agent with free will and responsibility for his or her own acts, though living in a universe devoid of any certain knowledge of right and wrong; from one's plight as a free agent with uncertain guidelines may arise feelings of anguish. Existentialism is concerned more with concrete existence rather than abstract theories of essences; is contrasted with rationalism and empiricism; and is associated with Kierkegaard, Heidegger and Sartre, as well as others.
Noun1.existentialism - (philosophy) a 20th-century philosophical movement; assumes that people are entirely free and thus responsible for what they make of themselves
