From this paper, it is clear that Sartre allows human beings to be who they really are. He allows them to be free and determine their essence themselves. Actually, it is human nature to be free and decide one’s essence oneself. We cannot generalize human nature on grounds of some universal codes because that would mean overlooking the powerful significance of individual experiences. To be human and to exist is to precede essence. There is no essence which determines existence for a human being. Rather, we exist first and then we are at liberty to define our essence. This concept of existentialism says a lot about human freedom. Such freedom has a positive impact on the novel’s main character, Roquentin, because it enables him to finally determine what it means to be human. When this realization hits him that he cannot be free as long as remains entangled in the past, he breaks free from the nauseous feeling of nothingness. Freedom comes with a responsibility and any attempt made to escape it leads to a life of nausea. When Roquentin forgets his responsibility by existing in the past, he becomes cursed with nausea. As he becomes free, he begins to feel warmer and happier. As nausea vanishes and Roquentin becomes free, all the objects which had become mundane to him resume their meaning. Instead of wasting time in recapturing the past, he finally finds challenges outside of himself which make him free. Such freedom, according to Sartre, is the most valuable and essential thing about being human.
