Motivated aversion: bad faith and non-thetic awareness

Webber, Jonathan ORCID: 2002. Motivated aversion: bad faith and non-thetic awareness. Sartre Studies International 8 (1) , pp. 45-57. 10.3167/135715502781809693

Sartre's concept of ‘non-thetic awareness’ must be understood as equivalent to the concept of ‘nonconceptual content’ currently discussed in anglophone epistemology and philosophy of mind, since it could not otherwise play the role in the structure of ‘bad faith’, or self-deception, that Sartre ascribes to it. This understanding of the term makes sense of some otherwise puzzling features of Sartre's early philosophy, and has implications for understanding certain areas of his thought.
