The Sea-Wolf is an example of symbolic naturalism, a novel that is simultaneously a study of environmental conditioning and a symbolic tale of initiation, a ritual of death and rebirth. I believe the main theme of the book is that people who are not self-sufficient will not survive.

If I was to pick two of the themes in your list above I would pick 2.alienated man(existentialism) and 6. class struggle(communism/socialism)
