Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

913 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in 26 languages and held by 7,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the 1964 Nobel Prize for Literature, Jean-Paul Sartre, French philosopher, critic, novelist, and dramatist, holds a position of singular eminence in the world of letters. Among readers and critics familiar with the whole of Sartre's work, it is generally recognized that his earliest novel, La Nausée (first published in 1938), is his finest and most significant. It is unquestionably a key novel of the twentieth century and a landmark in Existentialist fiction. Nausea is the story of Antoine Roquentin, a French writer who is horrified at his own existence. In impressionistic, diary form he ruthlessly catalogues his every feeling and sensation. His thoughts culminate in a pervasive, overpowering feeling of nausea which "spreads at the bottom of the viscous puddle, at the bottom of our time -- the time of purple suspenders and broken chair seats; it is made of wide, soft instants, spreading at the edge, like an oil stain." Roquentin's efforts to come to terms with life, his philosophical and psychological struggles, give Sartre the opportunity to dramatize the tenets of his Existentialist creed
The age of reason by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

393 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 4,879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in volatile Paris of 1938, the first novel of Sartre's monumental Roads to Freedom series, follows two days in the life of Mathieu Delarue, a middle-aged French professor of philosophy. As the shadows of the Second World War draw closer, even as his personal life is complicated by his mistress's pregnancy, his search for a way to remain free becomes more and more intense

The wretched of the earth by Frantz Fanon( Book )

129 editions published between 1961 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 3,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written at the height of the Algerian war for independence, Frantz Fanon's classic text has provided inspiration for anti-colonial movements ever since. With power and anger, Fanon makes clear the economic and psychological degradation inflicted by imperialism. It was Fanon, himself a psychotherapist, who exposed the connection between colonial war and mental disease, who showed how the fight for freedom must be combined with building a national culture, and who showed the way ahead, through revolutionary violence, to socialism. Many of the great calls to arms from the era of decolonization are now purely of historical interest, yet this passionate analysis of the relations between the great powers and the Third World is just as illuminating about the world we live in today"--Publisher description
Being and nothingness : an essay on phenomenological ontology by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

155 editions published between 1943 and 2020 in English and held by 3,709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often criticized, and all too rarely understood, the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre encompasses the dilemmas and aspirations of the individual in contemporary society. The principal text of the modern existentialist movement, Being and Nothingness contains the basic tenets of his thought. A work of inherent power and epic score, it provides a vivid analysis for all who would understand one of the most influential philosophic movements of our time

Saint Genet, actor and martyr by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

141 editions published between 1952 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 3,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saint Genet is Jean-Paul Sartre's classic biography of Jean Genet--thief, convict, and great artist--a character of almost legendary proportions whose influence grows stronger with time. Bringing together two of the century's greatest minds and artists, Saint Genet is at once a compelling psychological portrait, masterpiece of literary criticism, and one of Sartre's most personal and inspired philosophical creations
Anti-Semite and Jew by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

223 editions published between 1940 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 3,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by a non-Jew and from a non-Jewish point of view. Nothing of the anti-Semite either in his subtle form as a snob, or in his crude form as a gangster, escapes Sartre's sharp eye, and the whole problem of the Jew's relationship to the Gentile is examined in a concrete and living way, rather than in terms of sociological abstractions

The emotions, outline of a theory by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

213 editions published between 1938 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 2,868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although written fairly early in his career, in 1939, Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions is considered to be one of Jean-Paul Sartre's most important pieces of writing. It not only anticipates but argues many of the ideas to be found in his famous Being and Nothingness. By subjecting the emotion theories of his day to critical analysis, Sartre opened up the world of psychology to new and creative ways of interpreting feelings. Emotions are intentional and strategic ways of coping with difficult situations. We choose to utilize them, we control them, and not the other way around, as has been posited elsewhere. Emotions are not fixed; they have no essence and indeed are subject to rapid fluctuations and about-turns. For its witty approach alone, Sartre's Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions can be enjoyed at length. It is a dazzling journey to one of the more intriguing theories of our time. -- Back cover
Les mains sales, pièce en sept tableaux by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

462 editions published between 1947 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 2,785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A political drama set in the fictional country of Illyria between 1943 and 1945, the story is about the assassination of a leading politician. The story is told mainly in the form of a flashback, with the killer describing how he carried out his mission. The killer's identity is established from the beginning, but the question is whether his motivations were political or personal. Thus, the play's main theme is not on who did it but on why it was done
Baudelaire by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

218 editions published between 1947 and 2019 in 12 languages and held by 2,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sartre's study of Baudelaire is one of the more brilliant achievements of modern criticism. He turned abstractions like Existence and Being, Freedom and Nature, into a theory of psychoanalysis, grounded in man's creativity and opposed to Freudian determinism. Then he put the theory into practice in this book on Baudelaire
Search for a method by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

107 editions published between 1960 and 2005 in 7 languages and held by 2,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La méthode marxiste actuelle, affirme Sartre dans cet essai écrit en 1957 pour une revue polonaise, "s'identifie à la Terreur par son refus inflexible de différencier. Son but est l'assimilation totale au prix du moindre effort. Il ne s'agit pas de réaliser l'intégration du divers en tant que tel, en lui gardant son autonomie relative, mais de le supprimer". Ainsi, toute analyse marxiste d'une vie d'homme, d'un événement ou d'une période historique n'est plus qu'un jeu de concepts qui ne découvre rien. Sans remettre en cause les thèses de Marx, notamment sur l'importance des conditions matérielles dans les relations humaines, Sartre entend montrer que ces relations, aussi réifiées qu'elles puissent être, ne se laissent pas dissoudre dans l'économique ; il propose, pour repousser la limite marxiste à une compréhension de l'homme concret, de l'Histoire concrète, une méthode dialectique, progressive-régressive, dont certaines notions sont issues de l'existentialisme. C'est cette méthode qu'il mettra en œuvre dès l'année suivante dans son grand ouvrage (qu'il appelle ici sa "seconde partie") Critique de la Raison dialectique. -- Back cover

Les jeux sont faits by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

272 editions published between 1947 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 2,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story is set in Paris, in a setting vaguely suggestive of German-occupied northern France (or perhaps Vichy France) during World War II. The plot concerns two characters, Pierre Dumaine and <U+fffd>ve Charlier. They are predestined to be soulmates, but this destiny is prevented by their premature violent deaths, and they do not meet until passing into the afterlife. <U+fffd>ve and Pierre have never met each other in their respective lives. At the beginning of the book, <U+fffd>ve is very sick, and unknown to her, her husband And<U+fffd>r is poisoning her in order to marry her sister Lucette and keep the dowry. Pierre on the other hand is planning a revolution, but is killed by his friend Lucien. Both Pierre and <U+fffd>ve do not realize that they have been dead for a while. Pierre and <U+fffd>ve realize different truths about their own lives as they walk invisibly as ghosts amongst the living, with the power to interact only with other deceased souls. Pierre and <U+fffd>ve have difficulty adjusting to this powerless condition. They meet each other in line to register at a bureaucratic clearing house for the recently deceased where both of them slowly find out that there has been a mistake in the paperwork. They are surprised to learn that according to article 140, they were predestined to be soulmates. Successfully appealing their case, Pierre and <U+fffd>ve are brought back to life and given twenty-four hours to show their love to each other, or their second chance at living will be revoked. However, they are each distracted by unfinished business from their previous lives. Because <U+fffd>ve was poisoned by her husband, she wants to convince her sister that he is not a good man. Pierre wants to stop the revolution to overthrow the Regency that he had planned, because in death he discovered the Regent knew about it, and realizes that if carried out, it will result in the massacre of his friends and the end of the resistance. Unable to explain the unique circumstances in which they acquired their knowledge, they both have difficulty convincing their friends that they know what is the right thing to do. Neither is able to completely dissociate themselves from the things that were once important to them, and they realize that by not concentrating on their love they might be sacrificing their second chance at life
