Sartre’s Existential Psychoanalysis contemplates existentialism because it relates to glossy psychology
In Existential Psychoanalysis, Sartre seems to be at existentialism throughout the lens of recent psychology, with a selected curiosity in Freud’s concept of determinism. by way of framing the “human situation” round an existentialist psychoanalysis, the French thinker contradicts Freud through claiming that people are in complete regulate in their offerings, behaviors, and decisions—blatantly disagreeing with Freud’s thought of the subconscious libido.
By marrying philosophy with psychology and arguing opposed to one other well-known philosopher (Freud), Sartre asks the reader to reconsider the common definition of existentialist thought.
From the preface:
The Critique, actually, constitutes a
kind of summa, because it offers with the total problematical that I
had yet in part thought of within the creation. It elaborates a
theory of realizing within the feel, following Dilthey and
Weber, that I had taken the time period. It bargains with the bounds of
the comprehensible or the intelligible, as Jaspers had performed for
psychology and Weber had performed for the learn of social and
historical fact. It endeavours to difficult a typology of
practicc-oriented ensembles, or in different woi'ds, a typology of
the various modalities of reciprocal family members among the
individual and collectives, of the several modes of integration
of collectives into consciousnesses and, inversely, of consciousnesses
into collectives. and at last, yet with out delivering the
sustaining argument, that's left to a moment quantity, the
Critique takes as an final objective the intelligibility of a single
History, which has a tendency in the direction of the root of fact, or the
possibility of fact, from a totalizing of the turning into of man.
All the whereas Sartre follows the line that had led neo-Kantians
and phenomenologists to a opposite end: the extra that
understanding the previous expresses the historicity of the historian,
the extra it's pointed out with the belief of a combination
of situations by means of the actor, and the fewer it avoids perspectivism.
It turns out to justify the in a different way trite formulation that
each iteration and every epoch re-writes historical past. simply because the
future isn't really but current, and since every one iteration and each
epoch provides itself a unique prior as a result of the destiny towards
which it's orientated, it's the destiny that determines the current.

I have found that students who express the greatest misgivings about the systematic character of my theology are the very ones who are most impatient when discovering two of my statements that contradict each other. They are unhappy to find one point in which the hidden system has a gap. But when I develop the system further to close this gap, they feel that is a mean attempt on my part to imprison them. This is a very interesting double reaction. Yet it is understandable, because if the system is taken as a final answer, it becomes even worse than a prison.
There is no human existence without thought. The emotionalism that is so rampant in religion is not more but less than thinking, and reduces religion to the level of sub-human experience of reality. Schleiermacher emphasized the function of "feeling" in religion and Hegel emphasized "thought", giving rise to the tension between them. Hegel said that even dogs have feeling, but man has thought. This was based on an unintentional misunderstanding of what Schleiermacher meant by "feeling", one that we often find repeated even today.
