Beyond bad faith : vindicating the quest for being


Beyond bad faith : vindicating the quest for being

Zrihen, Yorel (1998) Beyond bad faith : vindicating the quest for being. Masters thesis, Concordia University.

Text (application/pdf)


By equating the "quest for Being" with "bad faith" Sartre has over-simplified and misrepresented human reality. In this thesis I examine Sartre's description of "the human condition," as well as his concepts of "bad faith", "good faith", "authenticity", and "the ego"--for evidence of the consistent devalorization of human reality's "natural quest for being." I will argue that the desire to self-coincide must be distinguished from the attempt to evade freedom. The quest for Being must be vindicated in order to restore a vital and valid dimension which is flagrantly excluded in Sartre's depiction of human reality.
