According to Rousseau, in the state of nature man is isolated and independent, but as he becomes a social being, he becomes also a moral being. Sartre thinks that anguish caracterizes the subjective existence of man while making decisions. To both, the beginning of intersubjectivity depends on recognition of the other and is essential to morals.
