Thus in the early portions of the novel, Roquentin, who takes no attitude towards objects and has no stake in them, is totally estranged from the world he experiences.


The objects themselves, in their brute existence, have only participation in a meaningless flow of events: This alienation from objects casts doubt for him, in turn, on his own validity and even his own existence.

Roquentin says of physical objects that, for them, "to exist is simply to be there.

Ethan Kleinberg writes [33] that, more than Husserl, it was Martin Heidegger who appealed to Sartre's sense of radical individualism.

He says, "for Sartre, the question of being was always and only a question of personal being. The dilemma of the individual confronting the overwhelming problem of understanding the relationship of consciousness to things, of being to things, is the central focus" of Nausea.

This view itself supported Sartre's vision of people as fundamentally both doomed and free to live lives of commitment and creativity.

These flashes appear seemingly randomly, from staring at a crumpled piece of paper in the gutter to picking up a rock on the beach. The feeling he perceives is pure disgust: As the novel progresses, the nausea appears more and more frequently, though he is still unsure of what it actually signifies.
