Existentialism is a  philosophy in which the universe is seen as being devoid of meaning except  that which humans give it through the use of their free will. Alienation, in  existentialist philosophy, is the detachment of a subject from an object,  activity or setting to which it innately belongs in the natural world. It is  inherently connected to existentialism but did not arise from the philosophy  itself. There are three types of alienation, that of self, nature and others.  These ideas stem from humans desire to establish an identity; however,  because of the ever changing nature of identity, humans become isolated from  themselves, their work and other people.
