Although this is a substub right now, it is an important philosophical topic. Presumably the original author is planning to expand. Give him/her a chance. If not expanded by end of VfD period, then delete. Bkonrad | Talk 21:01, 18 Apr 2004 (UTC)
I expanded it a bit. It's still a stub, but at least it's a semi-useful stub now. There's still a lot to be done in terms of distinguishing it from Dasein, but seeing as Dasein doesn't even have an entry right now, that's probably a future task. Regardless, it's a work in progress, and an important one. Keep. Snowspinner 21:17, 18 Apr 2004 (UTC)
Keep in its current form - looks promising. Pteron 04:29, 19 Apr 2004 (UTC)
Ack! Give it a chance! It was listed on vfd the same day I started the article! Anyhow, yeah, it can be distinguished from Daesin because being-in-itself is a term that Sartre develops in his own direction. Thanks for the added text, btw. Keep. -Seth Mahoney 17:06, 19 Apr 2004 (UTC)
There should be a source for the claim that Heidegger's alleged anti-semitism was rooted in his belief that jews were not whole Daseins. There is much scholarship on the issue of Heidegger's links to the Nazi party and whether or not he was truly anti-semitic. The wording damages the NPOV of this page.--Sam 04:42, 1 August 2006 (UTC)
Can't understand why the being-for-itself article was deleted. Can't make sense of that. Anyway I've added in some basics about Sartrean Being-in-itself. Without getting over the top with terminology. I'll grammaticalise it a bit tomorrow. Sludgehaichoi 22:38, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
This article is completely wrong. Hegel (nineteenth century) develops the concept of "being-in-itself (Ansichsein)." Someone needs to rewrite this altogether, or the article needs to be discarded, and readers can go to philosophers' pages, where their subjects are already elaborated.
