is a short description of what will be

Major attractions in each section.
THE WHOLE MUSEUM
Existential Philosopher's Museum brings together
several dimensions of existential thinking.
In contrast to other existentialism sites on the web,
this one does not dwell on the past
but focuses on the present and the future.
instead of reviewing the thoughts of dead philosophers,
this home page represents the thoughts of a living philosopher,
James Leonard Park.
seven basic divisions of this museum are:
section of An Existential Philosopher's Museum
explores all dimensions of loving relationships between peers.
The book reviews and other rooms in this section
seeks to make Authentic Existence central to loving relationships:
romance; freedom in love; loving without needing;
jealousy; multiple loving; birth planning; sex; marriage; etc.

sex-script hypothesis is the major innovation
of the sexology section of An Existential Philosopher's Museum.
This new theory of human sexuality
suggests that we are imprinted with our sexual responses
beginning at an early age and finishing about age 20.
This sex-script hypothesis informs all the book reviews
and other rooms in this part of the museum.

Rather than study dead philosophers
as an academic exercise,
this section of the museum presents existentialism as a viable,
living philosophy for the present.
You might already have some existential elements in your philosophy of life.

4. UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM
This creed-free liberal religious
movement has deep roots in the past,
but the living, present manifestations are the focus here,
including such things as online sermons by living UU thinkers;
electronic magazine for UUs on campus;
world wide cyber community;
and many other resources and links.

5. EXISTENTIAL SPIRITUALITY
Existential Spirituality is
a new form of spiritual life,
continuing the tradition begun by Søren Kierkegaard.
This is a living option for intelligent, self-critical persons.
Several book reviews point careful readers to meaningful resources.

6. MEDICAL ETHICS
Rather than presenting medical
as a professional or academic discipline or concern,
this section deals mostly with medical ethics
from the consumer's point of view.
Each of us should create our own medical ethics.
Reviews of several books that can help us
draw up our own Advance Directives for Medical Care,
books on preparing for death, etc.
Go in the MEDICAL ETHICS door.
We all must die some day.
But instead of just letting it happen,
we can make some meaningful preparations
for ourselves and those we love.
How would you most like to die?
This section of the museum has several rooms
devoted to safeguards for life-ending decisions.
