Abstract Sartre s transcendence of the ego  means that consciousness is outside of the ego, that the ego is the ego of the other , and that the other is neither in consciousness nor in the ego. Sartre viewed reflection  as a pure mood rather than as the substantial carrier of mood. The strangeness and absurdity of the world emerge from this reflection. Sartre s imagination of the evil  has two aspects. On the one hand, evil  corresponds to the concept of the other, transcending the capacity for domination of the ego; on the other hand, imagination is related to the other in a broad sense, with the ability to transform philistinism  and evil  into marvels.
