This chapter considers Sartre's critique of Freud and his alternative account of self-deception in terms of bad faith in order to see what can be learned from him and also in order to suggest that there is still much to be learned from Freud. Where Sartre's critique is defective, as it often is, an attempt is made to bring out the underlying problem that still poses a challenge to psychoanalytic theorizing.

Keywords: Sartre; Freud; self-deception; bad faith
