Selflessness in Sartre’s Existentialism & Early Buddhism ~ Phramaha Prayoon Mererk


Sartre’s and the Buddhist’s treatments of consciousness are similar in that they are characterized as non-egological. In formulating their own theories of consciousness, Sartre and the Buddhist alike have attacked the egology or attavada propounded by their predecessors and contemporaries.

Sartre thus rejects Husserl’s doctrine if the transcendental ego whereas the Buddhist repudiates the atman theorythe chief proponents of which are the Upanisadic thinkers. The outcome of their attack is much the same; theu reach the conclusion that there is no permanent self or ego within or behind the stream of consciousness; that is, consciousness is egoless or not-self (anatta). This is a basic view shared by Sartre and the Buddhist.
