I'm reading this for AP English, and was wondering if anyone could simplify the concepts of Being, Being in-Itself, and Being For-Itself. Also, I need help with the defining characteristics of being. Namely, "Being is. Being is in itself. Being is what it is." Thanks in advance.
I wont help you, just because I'm madly jealous at you having a decent English curriculum...
Never read the book, but I'm guessing Sartre smoked a LOT of weed.

I saw Rick Astley in Quebec City, on April 10th 2009. Best day of my life!

There is no being.

There is no existence.

There is only perception.

Feel free to follow up a silly philosophy.

Alright, I have not read this book and do not want to give a bash at describing these terms in case Satre defines them differently I'm afraid.

But bloody hell, Philosophy in an English class is awesome.

EDIT: Just google it, I tried and got good answers
