too many existentialist philosophy classes?

This morning one of the women in work, while we were outside for caffeine + nicotine, started dramatically asking “Why are we here? What are we doing? What’s the point of it all?”. I was sorely tempted to get into it, drawing on Sartre and Kierkegaard, but then realised that some of them already think I think too highly of myself- referring to dead philosophers might only reinforce that idea…

Needless to say, I mildly commented “well, everyone makes some difference” and left it at that… 🙂
