Existentialism & The Internet - Why We’re Getting More Anxious

0.5 ·

It is not as if the internet and age of information is bad, but it's not as if it's good. In this video, Pursuit of Wonder explores why, during an era where there is more information than ever about how to live and be happy, we are more confused and less happy than ever, in recent history.

Pursuit of Wonder refers to the ever popular Jean-Paul Sartre and existentialist movement to try to find meaning in this increasingly chaotic world.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
