The postmodern period is not favorable to development of metaphysical thought. But this, paradoxically, makes it easier to return to metaphysical systems of the past, and to submit them to new, perhaps more thoroughgoing scrutiny. This essay juxtaposes phenomenological existentialism of J.-P. Sartre with existentialism inspired by Saint Thomas. The author argues that in spite of numerous, and as a rule rather superficial, interpretations the differences between these two philosophical systems are not insurmountable. He highlights underlying similarities between the two points of view and subsequently focuses on general assumptions of all kinds of Western metaphysics
