Sartre’s point is that it is up to you to decide what to do with these experiences. You can use them in a negative way, or in a positive way, and for that choice, you are fully responsible. existence precedes essence’ . [p. 314] By this, Sartre means that we first simply exist – find ourselves born into a world not of our own choosing – and then create an identity for ourselves through our actions . - Sartre introduces the term ‘ bad faith ’ to refer to the state one is in when he tries to avoid facing up to responsibility for his actions. - ‘Authenticity’ is an acceptance of one’s freedom, and a recognition that human beings are the absolute origin of, and solely responsible for, their actions. determinism -- the view that every event has a cause -- is true. Incompatibilists (or hard determinists) hold that free will is incompatible with determinism. So if determinism is true, we are not free. Compatibilists (or soft determinists) hold that free will is compatible with determinism. So we can be free even if determinism is true.
