The Body as Anstoss in Sartre's Account of Constitution

- The Body as Anstoss in Sartre's Account of Constitution ABSTRACT: Of all the German idealists, Jean-Paul Sartre refers the least to Fichte-so little in fact that there have been long-standing suspicions that he was not even familiar with Fichte's writings. It is perhaps ironic, then, that Fichte's writings are as helpful as they are for clarifying Sartre's views, especially his views on subjectivity and inter-subjectivity. Here I want to look closely at a key concept in Fichte's mature writings: the concept of the Anstoss, a concept which Dan Breazeale has called "Fichte's original insight." Fichte introduces the Anstoss, or "check," to explain why the I posits the world as it does....   [tags: Jean-Paul Sartre Philosophy Existentialism]

Priestley, in his writing about Bradford, believes its character comes from, what might seem like, conflicting ideas. These ideas contribute to what Priestley calls Bradford’s odd quality. The character of Bradford, in 1933, when Priestley was writing, was made up of two extremes, provincialism and that of a cosmopolitan city. Provincialism remained in Bradford, firstly because the railway went to Leeds and not to Bradford and therefore the city didn’t get much new trade, such as any other manufacturing and/or greater educational oppor...   [tags: English Literature]

Within the book of John, there are only seven miracles, each are different, and five of them are unique to John.

By considering this format as a rite de passage (Van Gennep 1909), a concept that examines various social rituals as passage from one state of social being to another, these accounts may also be reconsidered as status changes t...   [tags: Sociology, Gender role, Heteronormativity]
