Example text

And would not experiments in tackling problems that address too the higher mystery—that live that mystery—also contribute to that understanding? A reason for acknowledging questionable existence rather than denying it would be my sense that I am most authentically myself when I experience existence—existence that is not restricted to any particular state of affairs—consciously. This is what makes me, a creature of changing circumstances, also human. Understanding how the different moments of my life all lead back to this experience and may advance coherently from it would thus be a form of liberal learning.

I can only be conscious of words on a screen that ultimately reside outside my consciousness and what appears in it. Thus from the existence of phenomena, we can derive the existence of two other kinds of beings: consciousness and things in themselves beyond consciousness. Having arrived at this dualistic ontology (“being-for-itself” and “beingin-itself”), Sartre proceeds to describe more fully how these two kinds of being interact so that appearance can take place; in effect, he derives the being of Strangerhood 37 the phenomenon from this interaction.
