I have decided to start my own glossary for words I come across in Being and Nothingness that I needed to look up. I’ll add to it as I go along. Hope someone else finds this useful.
Abschattung – Shade, hue, shadowing
Conatus – Exertion, striving
Concatenation – A series of interconnected events, concepts, etc, the act of linking together or the state of being joined
Dualism – Idea that in the universe there are two different kinds of things for example mind and body or Plato’s actuals vs universals.
Eidetic – to do with recall of visual imagery.
Erscheinung – In German this seems to mean everything from appearance, phenomenon, emergence. Sartre seems to use it in reference to a particular idea of Kant.
Hexis – From the Greek – often translated as state, possession or having, or disposition. I think Sartre is using it in the term of state i.e. “behind the act there is neither potency nor hexis nor virtue”. Meaning there is nothing solid behind the act.
Monism – Idea that in the universe there is only one kind of things i.e. phenomenon.
Nominalism – Idea that universals are merely names for things
Noumenal – In the realm of thought rather than substance. From noumenon – a thing as it is in itself, not perceived or interpreted, incapable of being known, but only inferred from the nature of experience or the object of a purely intellectual intuition.
Ontic – Real, possessing the character of the real
Ontology – Study of the nature of being, set of entities presupposed by a theory, and in some senses Sartre uses it as a term for the theory as well i.e. a particular ontology would include a theory of being and associated entities.
Plenitude – Fullness, state of being complete
Transcendence – Moving beyond
Wesenchau – From Husserl – Intuition of Essences
