Being and nothingness : an essay on phenomenological ontology by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

24 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in German and held by 145 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

Literature & existentialism by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

9 editions published between 1978 and 2006 in German and Undetermined and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a probing philosophical exploration of the act of literary creation, Sartre asks: & ldquo;What is writing?, & rdquo; & ldquo;Why write?, & rdquo; and & ldquo;For whom does one write? & rdquo; After discussing existentialism as it pertains to art, human emotions, and psychology, French existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre turns the question of existentialism to the subject of literature by stating that he wishes to & ldquo;examine the art of writing without prejudice. & rdquo; Sartre eschews the idea of artists and writers comparing their works of art to one another; instead, he argues, & ldquo;they exist by themselves. & rdquo; Tying into his thoughts on literature, Sartre additionally delves into Marxist politics, the intellectual labor of the writer, the individual reader, and the reading public

The words by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

14 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean-Paul Sartre was arguably the best-known and most influential French writer of his time. As a philosopher, as a novelist, as a playwright, as the author of filmscripts, as the editor of Les Temps Modernes, as a man who was never afraid to commit himself to the moral and political as well as the literary life of his own times, he was unique. Not since Voltaire has Western civilization produced so humane, manifold, and boldly "engaged" a man of letters. At 59, he undertook his autobiography, bringing to his own childhood the same rigor of honesty and insight which he had applied so brilliantly in earlier books to Baudelaire and Jean Genet. "Directed to the heart as well as to the intellect," the result is like nothing else in the Sartre canon, or in France, where The Words has been accorded a place beside that other masterpiece of self-analysis, Rousseau's Confessions.--Adapted from publisher description
