Sartre's Bad Faith and Freedom

Dark Feelings, Grim Thoughts

Sartre’s Being and Nothingness is one of the great books in philosophy of the 20th century. One of the most excerpted and most discussed sections of that book is the chapter on “Bad Faith”. Sartre’s analysis centers on the twin concepts of facticity and transcendence and the complex relationship of the two. He also suggests that bad faith may be inescapable, a thesis seriously challenged here. This chapter also examines Sartre’s famous examples of bad faith in considerable detail.

Keywords:   Being and Nothingness, Bad Faith, facticity, transcendence, phenomenology, reflection, prereflective consciousness, good faith, authenticity
