Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jean-Paul Sartre was once described as being, next to Charles de Gaulle, the most famous Frenchman of the 20th century. Introducing Sartre explains the basic ideas that inspired his existential world-view, and pays particular attention to his idea of freedom. It links the more general presuppositions of Sartre's philosophy to his ideas on Marxism and his support for movements of national liberation in the Third World, and explores the impact that his unusual child-hood had on his attitude towards French society.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

This text places Sartre's thinking in the context of the 20th century debate on the nature and function of literature, and especially the concept of politically "committed" literature which he so valued. It also explores his ideas about Marxism, his enthusiasm for the 1968 student rebellion, and his support for the liberation of Third World countries from Western imperialism. The book also looks at the impact of his unusual childhood, and its effects on his view of French bourgeois society.
