Not much accomplished today. Read for about 20 minutes before I went to work this morning, and did a bit of sewing on the train. Had all these plans to do loads of stuff this evening, but now I am feeling tired and snuffly. Am trying very hard not to have another cold with varying levels of success.
I did have three blocks to post this evening but as I was resizing one of them I realised it was probably wrong, am going to have to go find the book and double-check. In the meantime you are going to have to make do with just two, and a question. Do you think animals count as for-itself? I don’t know what Sartre would say about that, he doesn’t really mention them but the defining quality to be a for-itself seems to be that you can tell you are not something. While I know some animals can’t recognise themselves in mirrors most of them would know what is them and what is not. In a sense a reflection in a mirror is not them.
