Existential Risk - Why is it called an existential threat?


The term 'existential threat' refers to a danger that poses a risk to the very existence or survival of a society or species. The phrase 'existential questions' is derived from Existentialism, a 20th-century philosophical thought that grapples with queries about life's purpose and the reasons for our existence.
