Abandoning the Primacy of Knowledge

Abandoning the Primacy of Knowledge

“We said that consciousness is the knowing being in his capacity as being and not as being known. This means that we must abandon the primacy of knowledge if we wish to establish that knowledge.”

Jean Paul Sartre | Being and Nothingness


Let’s parse that first sentence with some creative punctuation:

  • consciousness = the knowing being (in his/her capacity as being, not [merely] as being known)
