Shame and the exposed self

In Jonathan Webber (ed.), Reading Sartre: On Phenomenology and Existentialism. Routledge (2010)
On many standard readings, shame is an emotion that in an accentuated manner targets and involves the self in its totality. In shame, the self is affected by a global devaluation: it feels defective, objectionable, condemned. The basic question I wish to raise and discuss is the following: What does the fact that we feel shame tell us about the nature of self? What kind of self is it that is affected in shame?
