This does not mean that there is no other consciousness, simply that this other does not count; it is "inessential" (p. 143/231/186). If there is another, it is equally isolated, independent, self-contained; each is for the other, as Sartre would complain, simply an object; or, as Hegel has it, they walk onto the stage of life as "independent figures" (Gestalten) (p.
