Die groszen Thesen seiner Seinslehre darf ich als bekannt voraussetzen. Sartre stellt zwei grosze Bereiche einander gegeniiber, die einen schroffen Gegensatz bilden: das inhaltlose, grundlose, beziehunglose Ansich-sein, von dem man nur sagen kann, dasz es faktisch besteht, einerseits; und das Bewusztsein, das sich von dieser massiven Sinnlosigkeit belagert weisz, andererseits.

Das Ideale befindet sich jedoch nicht in einem Reich der Ideen, das von dem irdischen und fleischlichen Sein streng getrennt ist.
