|Sartre's Thoughts On Reality
Sartre rejects the old "dualism of being and appearance," which began before Plato. "For the being of an existent is exactly what it appears." He disclaims the Aristotelian "duality of potency and act, " saying, "The act is everything." Sartre's idea of reality parallels Descartes', "I am, I exist, I think, therefore I am; I am because I think, why do I think? I don't want to think any more, I am because I think that I don't want to be."
