Emotionally Qualified

Philosophy in the Contemporary World 16 (1):113-121 (2009)
In Sartre's philosophy, the existence of consciousness as a negation of Being is problematic for considerations of the Self, which. is required for foundations within the world. This grounding seems to entail an essential relationship with an Other. However, he maintains that one can only know the Other as a fact of the world By explicating his theory of the emotions, I will argue that an emotive relationship with an Other is the ontological qualification for the grounding of consciousness. Emotions affect the body, one's facticity,which is what anchors a person in a situation to an Other
