The Cambridge companion to Sartre by Christina Howells( Book )

55 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the most comprehensive and up-to-date surveys of the philosophy of Sartre, by some of the foremost interpreters in the United States and Europe. The essays are both expository and original, and cover Sartre's writings on ontology, phenomenology, psychology, ethics, and aesthetics, as well as his work on history, commitment, and progress; a final section considers Sartre's relationship to structuralism and deconstruction. Providing a balanced view of Sartre's philosophy and situating it in relation to contemporary trends in Continental philosophy, the volume shows that many of the topics associated with Lacan, Foucault, Levi-Strauss, and Derrida are to be found in the work of Sartre, in some cases as early as 1936. A special feature of the volume is the treatment of the recently published and hitherto little studied posthumous works
Stiegler and technics by Gerald Moore( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These 17 essays covers all aspects of Bernard Stiegler's work, from poststructuralism, anthropology and psychoanalysis to his work on the politics of memory, 'libidinal economy', technoscience and aesthetics, keeping a focus on his key theory of technics throughout. Stiegler brings together key concepts from Plato, Freud, Derrida and Simondon to argue that the human is 'invented' through technics rather than a product of purely biological evolution. Stiegler is a thinker at the forefront of our contemporary concerns with consumerism, technology, inter-generational division, political apathy and economic crisis. His ambitious project is to go beyond these sources of social distress to uncover and examine precisely 'what makes life worth living'. -Publisher description
Sartre : the necessity of freedom by Christina Howells( Book )

29 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Multiple languages and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exciting and accessible collection of essays, from French and American as well as British authors, brings together some of the best contemporary critics of Sartre's literary works. Using a wide variety of modern theoretical and critical approaches, the essays examine Sartre's work as literature, rather than as illustrations of his philosophical treatises. From semiotics to deconstruction, from pragmatics to psychoanalysis, these highly readable essays apply some of the most up-to-date approaches in contemporary critical thinking to Sartre's novels, plays, literary theory and autobiography. Several of the essays deal in different ways with the same text, demonstrating a wide spectrum of critical approach and producing varied but complementary interpretations of the major works
