HW12 due 10/17: Jean Paul Sartre

1. Jean Paul Sartre–Print out and read the following sections on Sartre’s philosophy: Ontology, Psychology, and Ethics.  Among other things pay particular attention to the Being-in-itself and Being-for-itself. We begin Nausea at the end of this week.  This novel is quite challenging to wrap your head around and simply cannot be understood without understanding the concepts above.  Further, revisit Schopenhauer’s The World as Will and specifically the concepts of will and representation.  I expect you to have both printouts in hand on Thursday; if you don’t, don’t bother coming to class as the class will be based almost entirely on these readings.

2. Nausea–once again, if you can secure a copy of Nausea by the end of the week, please do so.
