Honors 11: Jean-Paul Sartre and No Exit

We began the day with a fun fancy dining skit concerning one of Sartre’s tenets, encrustation. This is the idea that we succumb to certain ideas and representations of who we should be/how we should act, talk, etc. We adopt identities for others who see us and expect us to be that way i.e. the snotty patron and the overly enthusiastic waiter. We connected this to his idea of “Being for Others.” Here’s the handout we then used to make connections to what we read in No Exit, de Beauvoir, and Camus.

We watched the first part of Human, All Too Human: Jean-Paul Sartre (up until 13:30).

Finish the play for Wednesday.

Interesting information about Sartre and de Beauvoir’s relationship.
