                Abstract

                Keywords: Existentialism, Positivism, Rationalism. Consciously or not, people in this world sometimes are being subjective and opposing the reality. The objectives of the study are to analyze the opposition to positivism and rationalism ofSmirnov in “The Bear”, Lomov in “The Proposal”, and Ivan in “A Tragedian in Spite of Himself”. This study attempts to find how the main characters oppose positivism and rationalism in the plays and the reason of doing so. Chekhov mostly applies events in daily life to his play, so this study is expected to reveal the purposes of human existence by analyzing his main characters in the play. Descriptive qualitative method is applied as a research method. To achieve the objective of the study, the writer uses existentialist approach and finds what kinds of positivism and rationalism that have been opposed by the main characters. This Study found out how the main characters oppose positivism and rationalism by being subjective. Each character has their own way in showing their existence. As the result, every character has their own purposes to be existence. The purposes of the main characters are their own eternal happiness. In “The Bear” Smirnov is being stubborn because he wants to show his power as a landowner, in “The Proposal” Lomov is flaunting his wealth in order to propose Natalya, and Ivan is nagging to show people his struggle in life.
