Although a wide gap exists between existential thought and logical empiricism, the influence of existentialism is growing. The author compares these two schools of thought by looking at their methods and language, their search for ultimate principles of being and knowing, the implications of their findings for man, and their relation to the principle of choice. These philosophies are then applied to a question of the freedom of man, and the possible contributions of existentialism to analytic thought are explored.
