Title: Pierre-Jean Renaudie
Being truthful or untruthful to oneself : Remarks on Sartre and Cavell

Radicalizing Husserl’s critique of the so-called self-transparency of the  
ego, Sartre emphasized its opacity and stressed the importance of  
truthfulness as a moral condition of self-knowledge. Describing and knowing  
oneself is then not a matter of knowledge but of authenticity : it requires  
a moral commitment to oneself that is always likely to be compromised by  
bad faith. I argue that the role this concept of truthfullness plays in  
Sartre's analysis of the self presupposes a refined and disguised form of  
self-transparency that reintroduces some of the difficulties Husserl was  
attempting to rule out, and that a better account of the self can be  
sketched on the basis of Cavell's remarks on autobiography.
