The Courage to Be

Courage as a human act, as a matter of valuation, is an ethical concept. Courage as the universal and essential self affirmation of one’s being is an ontological concept. The courage to be is the ethical act in which man affirms his own being in spite of those elements of his existence which conflict with his essential self-affirmation.
