existential angst

Existential angst is an idiom which is also known as dread, anxiety or anguish that is very common to many existentialist thinkers. It is generally known as a negative feeling that will arise from the experience of human freedom and responsibility. Existential thinkers look at life and the world around them in a different way than other people do out of personal experience; therefore they feel more anxiety and anguish over the realities.
