Sartre’s Concept of Intentionality in Current Researches

Filozofia 62:457-467 (2007)

The paper deals with those current Sartrean researches, which are concerned with Sartre’s early phenomenological writings. The researchers involved see the latter as important as Sartre’s later fundamental works. Their interpretations go beyond the view traditional of those works. Beside Sartre as a philosopher of subjectivity they try to emphasize the „other“ Sartre, who is concerned with the power „of things“ and the potential abilities of the consciousness deprived of ego as the uniting centre of experience. Adopting this perspective requires to resort to his conception of intentionality. It is necessary to comprehend, how the world oriented consciousness with its typical compulsory self-transcendence becomes also self-consciousness due to the experience of the sense of the given. The issue under question is not only the profit brought by this process, but also the loss involved in such approach to consciousness
