Emrys Westacott is a professor of philosophy at Alfred University. In it, he sets out his view that the self or ego is not itself something that one is aware of. Consciousness is always intentional; that is, it is always and necessarily consciousness of something. The 'object' of consciousness can be almost any kind of thing: a physical object, a proposition, a state of affairs, a recollected image or mood--anything that consciousness can apprehend. Sartre radicalizes this principle by asserting that consciousness is nothing but intentionality. This means conceiving of consciousness as a pure activity, and denying that there is any "ego" which lies within, behind or beneath consciousness as its source or necessary condition. The justification of this claim is one of Sartre's main purposes in The Transcendence of the Ego.
It demonstrates their presence and importance in Sartre's thinking from the very outset of his career.

The Transcendence of the Ego. By Jean-Paul Sartre. This is because the I, which exists at tirely empty. Consciousness is now free to re- the level of the empirical, or the human, no turn once again to the things themselves.
For longer finds a transcendental correlate. The personal does not apply simply sonal, but that it is pre-individual.
That is, that so a certain level of acculturation at the level of what is logically prior to all individualised humanity, or a level of differentiation between states of affairs is not itself individuated.
Con- different Is within the empirical world, but in- sciousness, whilst lacking content, is still an stead to a form of structure. The I has its per- individual. We must also note that it is not just attack. A tree or a chair exist no differently.
These implications of course selves. Whilst the empirical field may be transcendental ego standing behind conscious- structured in accordance with a transitional ness. Consciousness is individuated and uni- logic of states of affairs, the transcendental fied by this series of objects within the world.
There can be no Sartre believed by this that he had also solved direct correlation between what synthesizes some ancillary problems relating to the tran- and what are the results of these syntheses.
In fact the pres- longer be upheld. The predicate and subject, are still, in themselves, look is the attempt by each consciousness to fully determined.
Thus, in order for them to be subsume the other within its own synthesis of synthesized, it is necessary that they be held the transcendental field. The disintegration is together through a function that remains out- literally the failure of this synthesis.
The tran- side of them. This is to plication to different elements, thus allowing, say that consciousness is not merely an indi- through its attachment to these concepts, an el- viduating, but also a personalized presence ement of homogeneity to enter into them, thus within the transcendental field synthesis are overcoming their intrinsic heterogeneity.
Re- multiple and depend on the particular con- moving the transcendental ego from the pro- sciousness. As this contradicts the first impli- cess of synthesis therefore will require a new cation of the removal of the transcendental model of the way in which the elements of a ego, we can now see that what guarantees the representation can both exist prior to the pre-personal nature of the transcendental field subject whilst retaining the possibility of their is precisely that it is also pre-individual.
This synthesis. That is to say, transcendental Ego.

Thus for Kant, the parallel- unity of apperception and the identity of the ism between the transcendental and empirical conditions for knowledge of an object and the is justified through the necessity of a transcen- conditions of an object themselves imply one dental field, and at the same time the belief that another.
Whilst the formlessness cover the two traditional options subject may be finite, his understanding is syn- provided by philosophy.

This is for determinable. Heck, even I and every other race and gender are experiencing you If you are the Man, you can let others figure out how to deal with the problems created by the Man. And yes So yeah, under that paradigm that chica is totally overwhelmed not because this book is in where without a man she's fully exposed and unprotected from a world that both formally and informally is entirely sexist Full marks for a solidly substantiated argument How is it that none of philosophy's child disciplines are allowed to ignore their findings in complimentary disciplines??
If Satre was the buddha then he would have been more like Goodness People!!! I hope his other works are better
