Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Jean-Paul Sartre used the term 'la nausée' to act as the equivalent for the untranslatable German Angst.
The English of this is probably closest to anguish, which carries the sense of conscious awareness and the sense of limitation.
Sartre and contemporaries like Gide and Malraux attempted to describe the haunting burden of the 'freedom to be', which is both man's gift and his crisis.
