Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing question and need support to help me learn.

  1. In your life, who do you need in order to continue being who you are? How much does this need depend on them acting a certain way?
  1. Sartre thinks that, as part of our continual bad faith, we need other people not only to blame our faults on, but also to take credit for our virtues. Pick two things you really like about yourself. Now force yourself to identify this virtue as totally stemming from someone else – who is this Other?
  2. Does this virtue stem from this Other because you got it from them, like an inheritance? Or do you need this Other in order for the virtue to be implemented, like a dance partner?
