MWP video 6g: Authenticity

Authenticity (or individuality, or autonomy) depends on integration – overcoming conflicts within ourselves. Absolutisation – adopting absolute beliefs associated with groups and authorities – interferes with that integration and thus leads to ‘bad faith’ or a lack of authenticity. This is a tributary video to no. 6 on authenticity in a series on Middle Way Philosophy, and explains how the ideas of thinkers like Sartre on authenticity can be supportive of the practice of the Middle Way.
