Please help me explain these phrases
1. Man as a thinking being should strive to seek for and live in truth.
Man lives in truth when he lives in wisdom.

2. Man is capable of transcendence; man can go beyond what is
actually given.

3. Love begins with a loving encounter which involves an appeal.
This leads to the experience of love which demands trush, respect,
freedom, sacrifice, personal knowledge, historicity and acceptance
on the totality of the person.

4. Man is responsible for the existence of evil, not God, for God
cannot will it. It is therefore man's nature, his free will, that
makes a man imperfect.

5. Doing philosophy is easire than defining philosophy

6. Primary reflection tends to dissolve the unity of experience,
whereas secondary reflection attemps to re-conquer that unity

7. Life from the viewpoint of death is something fearful, but death
from the viewpoint of life is something a promising future.

8. The Absolute is a Thou because the Absolute is Someone who is
present in every finite thou and whom i can address myself to and who can respond to me

These are mostly based on pseudo-religious context and therefore do not merit philosophical explanation.

Each one of these statements is a deep philosophical and religious statement that can take a lifetime of experience to answer. I hope you're not in a hurry, and I'll try to address some of them. Are you taking a philosophy course?

I am surprised if these questions originate from a 'regular' philosophy course. Wotds like 'truth', 'love', and 'absolute' are all potential candidates for deconstruction.

It's all moot now, because the exam is over. He waited until the last minute to ask for help to questions that take a long time to answer.

I'm game.

Specifically 'man' - (I'll assume homosapien) - I agree - Truth (Honesty) would form a brilliant foundation.
'Honesty is wise' - I agree.
