Product description

Review

"When [Sartre] demands that we take responsibility for our lives, for the shape of our world, for the situation of the least favored--for others as well as ourselves--he is expressing decisively important conditions for learning to live as responsible citizens in this globalized world. This is no outmoded radicalism, but the message of one of the most challenging and contemporary philosophies."--Ronald Aronson, International Herald Tribune

"Like no one else, [Sartre] sought to understand exactly what it means to be responsible."--Ronald Aronson, International Herald Tribune


"In this small book, we discover Sartre as more than the café existentialist or the playboy. Here we see the committed philosopher working in public, with many of its evident hazards. Despite its flaws, in Existentialism is a Humanism, we have a model for a committed philosophy--one that is sorely needed today."--Nicholas Hengen, Rain Taxi
Selected as a 2008 AAUP University Press Book for Public and Secondary School Libraries
"To understand Jean-Paul Sartre is to understand something important about the present time."--Iris Murdoch

About the Author

Philosopher, playwright, and novelist Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980) was the most dominant European intellectual for the three decades following World War II. In 1964, he was awarded but declined the Nobel Prize in Literature. Annie Cohen-Solal is the author of the acclaimed Sartre: A Life, an international best-seller that has been translated into sixteen languages.
