Edmund Husserl, the father of phenomenology, argued that the unity of ones own consciousness depends on the transcendental ego, an irreducible, essential self not available to ordinary consciousness. But in The Transcendence of the Ego, Jean-Paul Sartre launched a sustained attack on Husserls doctrine and argued that the self is instead a construct, a product of ones self-image in the eyes of others. In this first book-length commentary on Sartres influential work, Stephen Priest explores Sartres hostility to any essentialist conception of the self and sheds new light on the debates over consciousness, the legacy of Descartes and Kant, the nature of selfhood and personal identity, and the development of the phenomenological tradition.
