Abstract

In this project, I explore the limitation of Jean-Paul Sartre’s concept of being-for-others and the accompanying intersubjective attitudes that we take in relation our being-for-others. Because the being-for-others for Blacks and Muslims is their negatively racialized bodies, Sartre’s intersubjective attitudes fail in the case of these two groups. This project criticizes Sartre’s intersubjective attitudes by examining the different strategies that Blacks and Muslims take in relation to their racialized being-for-others.
