It compares this rejection with Wittgensteins rejection of these conceptions of man, his relation to the knowledge of what belongs to the world in which he lives. It concentrates on the existentialist critiques of consciousness as a substance and of the self as such a substance, of each persons body as something external to which he is causally related, and of others as at best indirectly accessible to us. It discusses Sartres positive views on these questions and the way he falls into a form of solipsism himself.

It then considers Sartres rejection of determinism and his conception of freedom as our capacity for choice. In a concluding chapter the book sketches a non-objectivist account of the self, its development, its bad faith, its capacity to emerge from it, and its knowledge of itself, free from the objections considered earlier. It then considers some new objections directed at its own account.
