Sartre’s Existentialism Is a Humanism and Freud, “The Structure of the Unconscious”

Sartre’s Existentialism Is a Humanism 1) What common ideas about existentialism is Sartre defending against? (p. 1) 2) What does Sartre mean in claiming that “existence precedes essence”? (p. 3) 3) For what reason does Sartre deny the existence of human nature? (p. 4) 4) Why does Sartre discuss the Biblical story of Abraham? (p. 6) 5) What does Sartre mean in saying that humans are “condemned to be free”? (p. 8) Study questions on Freud, “The Structure of the Unconscious” 1) In Freud’s view, what are the “three qualities of mental processes,” how are they different, and what common root underlies all of them? (See pages 1-2) 2) Explain how the ego mediates between the id and the super-ego. Be sure to give definitions of each. Then, distinguish the sense in which Freud uses ego from the ordinary, everyday sense of the word, as in “He/she has a huge ego.”
