Gregory McCulloch’s recent book Using Sartre has the laudable aim of treating Being and Nothingness ‘analytically’.1 But, I think, he falls short of fulfilling this aim, and I want to try to bring this out in respect of his interpretation of Sartre’s treatment of the question of the existence of Others. McCulloch’s idea of ‘treating Sartre analytically’ is treating him as ‘one of us’ (US x), by which he says that he means ‘applying analytical techniques and standards of rigour to Sartre’ (Ibid.). ‘Bravo,’ one might say; but in practice, McCulloch slips into a more ordinary use of the expression ‘treating Sartre as one of us’.
