Being is what the conscious subject questions, and it is independent of that subject. This independent being lacks all determinate character. Being is ‘opaque’, ‘solid’, ‘filled with itself’. Concepts such as activity and passivity, temporality and change, possibility and necessity do not apply to being. Being, Sartre says, is ‘beyond’ all these. To be precise, the only thing one could say about it is that it is what it is. Consciousness, by contrast, is entirely transparent to itself; it has no hidden features.

The relation between a conscious subject and an essence as they together make up a human being is not adequately captured either by an affirmation or by a denial of identity between them, so long as identity is understood in the sense in which it applies to objects in the world. What makes it oneself that one reflects on is the particular concern which one has for the past and future of that self, for it is one’s own; however, in reflecting upon it, one makes it an object of one’s consciousness.
