It is intending to analyze, in this research, what to extend the Jean-Paul Sartre's phenomenology evades to solipsism's problem. For that, we'll consult the Jean-Paul Sartre's young text, The Transcendence of the Ego, published in 1936. With the support of Sartre’s theoretical writings in decade of thirty, but also, occasionally, mature Sartre in Being and Nothingness, it is objective to search the way how he approaches the relation of consciousness intentional with transcendental objects, assuming the consciousness like "transcendental camp" pre- subjective and rejecting the "Ego" as immanent to consciousness, but, instead, thinking also like transcendent, such as the others mundane objects. Withal, it is the purpose to verify what to extended there is an overcoming of the classic problem of philosophical tradition: the solipsism's problem. (AU)
