ABSTRACT. This paper is grounded in the considerable body of scholarship examining Sartre’s idea of the subject as responsible for the world, his idea of absolute freedom, his metaphysics of the human subject, and his description of the subject as non-self-identical. The mainstay of the paper is formed by an analysis of the relationship between Sartre’s ontology of possibles, his theory of the for-itself-as-Self, his conception of facticity, and his metaphysics of nothingness. This research makes conceptual and methodological contributions to Sartre’s theory of the self, his conception of being-in-itself, his concept of authenticity, his understanding of consciousness as freedom, and the Sartrean social world. pp. 141–146

Keywords: Sartre, freedom, consciousness, metaphysics, self, Other
