Storyboard Text

  • We are the sum of our experiences as we continually make ourselves as we are!
  • I study a lot and get good grades, I made myself a good student!
  • I skip class and fail to hand in assignments, I made myself a bad student!
  • I'll never be on the cheer squad I can't try out I'm scared!!
  • Jean-Paul Sartre felt that belief in God was no longer possible because if He existed He would have conceived a fixed nature for humans.
  • We exist; whatever is uniquely ours, whatever explains each of us as an individual is ours for the making.
  • This table is 'being-in-itself'
  • Humans have the freedom to change and make different choices, which is why determinism, denial of personal freedom, is the root of bad faith.
  • This distinction between the 2 kinds of beings lead me to conclude that humans are insofar as they act which is how they make themselves.
  • For Sartre, reality consists of 2 kinds of being: being of consciousness and being what appears to be conscious. To graph this distinction...
  • Consciousness is termed as 'being-for-itself' and appearing conscious is termed as 'being-in-itself'
  • Consider a table that stands across the room. There are many ways in which you can "intend" the table-in which you can think,remember, and imagine it. The table can't perform that operation, it has no consciousness.
  • On the other hand, consciousness van conceive of things as they are not. It involves human activities such as imagining, lying, and questioning.Being-for-itself makes meaning, it exists in a world of it's own making; it is it's own God and responsible for the world that it makes.
