In other words, he thinks that man first of all exists, encounters himself, surges up in the world and defines himself afterwards.Man can only conceive himself after existing. "Before that projection of self, nothing exists; not even in the heaven of intelligence: man will only attain existence when he is what he proposes to be." So, the very first effect of existentialism is that it puts every man responsible for what he becomes and the very responsibility of how he becomes is on his shoulders. So all the crap communists or Christians gave about existentialism being a bourgeois philosophy can eat it. Their doctrine is built on the pure subjectivity of an individual while Satre thinks the essence comes before the existence not the other way around.
Also, Satre wants people to shut their trap about existentialism offering the gloomy side of things (aka existential crises as my realist friends like to call it)'cos it aint that. He says it only scares those fellas cos it confronts them with the possibility of choice.So according to Satre, I do not exist. NOT YET.
