Truth and existence by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At long last, Truth and Existence allows us to read Jean-Paul Sartre's analysis of knowing and truth. This brilliant epistemological sequel to Being and Nothingness was found among Sartre's unpublished manuscripts by his adoptive daughter and executor, Arlette Elkaim-Sartre. Posthumously published in France in 1989, the work dates to 1948, shortly after Sartre's controversial call for the writer's political commitment and his celebrated public lecture "Existentialism Is a Humanism." Truth and Existence, written in response to Martin Heidegger's The Essence of Truth, is a product of the years when Sartre was reaching full stature as a philosopher, novelist, playwright, essayist, and political activist. This brief, coherent, and engaging text presents Sartre's ontology of truth in terms of his characteristic key moral questions of freedom, action, and bad faith. While stressing the intuitive and personal dimensions of truth, Truth and Existence also explores the argument that ignoring is an intentional act starting, like all knowledge, from the primary ontological condition of ignorance. Thus, at the heart of Sartre's discussion are explanations of ignorance (as resulting from the choice to ignore), phenomenological descriptions (of behavior seeking to avoid the truth), and the reasons why one chooses to avoid the truth. Sartre explores why one Madame T., afflicted with tuberculosis, should choose to ignore the disease that is killing her rather than take responsibility for it. Here is Sartre the existentialist at his most original and most provocative: this work of epistemology, based on ontology, becomes a work of ethics. At the same time, Truth and Existence foreshadows and lays the basis for some of the most important insights of the Critique of Dialectical Reason. Truth and Existence is introduced by an extended biographical, historical, and analytical essay by Ronald Aronson

Existentialism by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was to correct common misconceptions about his thought that Sartre accepted an invitation to speak on October 29, 1945, at the Club Maintenant in Paris. The unstated objective of his lecture ("Existentialism Is a Humanism") was to expound his philosophy as a form of "existentialism," a term much bandied about at the time. Sartre asserted that existentialism was essentially a doctrine for philosophers, though, ironically, he was about to make it accessible to a general audience. The published text of his lecture quickly became one of the bibles of existentialism and made Sartre an international celebrity. The idea of freedom occupies the center of Sartre's doctrine. Man, born into an empty, godless universe, is nothing to begin with. He creates his essence - his self, his being - through the choices he freely makes ("existence precedes essence"). Were it not for the contingency of his death, he would never end. Choosing to be this or that is to affirm the value of what we choose. In choosing, therefore, we commit not only ourselves but all of mankind. This edition of Existentialism Is a Humanism is a translation of the 1996 French edition, which includes Arlette Elkaim-Sartre's introduction and a Q & A with Sartre about his lecture. Paired with "Existentialism Is a Humanism" is another seminal Sartre text, his commentary on Camus's The Stranger. In her foreword, intended for an American audience, acclaimed Sartre biographer Annie Cohen-Solal offers an assessment of both works"--Jacket
Typhus by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in French and English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Malaya during the British protectorate, the story centers on the improbable couple formed by Nellie, a down-at-heel nightclub singer, whose partner succumbs at an early stage to the epidemic of typhus sweeping the country, and the disgraced former doctor Georges, who has sunk to the lowest depths of a highly stratified colonial society. Though it does not shy from the political issues of colonialism and race that are implied in its setting, Typhus is both a turbulent love story in the best traditions of Western popular cinema and an existentialist tale of moral redemption. --Publisher's description

Les carnets de la drôle de guerre : novembre 1939-mars 1940 by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in French and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nouvelle édition augmentée d'un cahier inédit de 170 pages. Un document et un chef-d'oeuvre. Depuis ##Les mots##, ces ##Carnets## constituent le plus émouvant et le plus authentique des livres de Sartre. Le philosophe a 34 ans, dans trois ans il publiera ##L'être et le néant##. A sa façon, prodigieuse, il trompe l'ennui de la drôle de guerre. Il aborde les sujets les plus divers d'Heidegger à l'érotisme en passant par l'amitié et l'ébauche d'un système existentiel, mais revient toujours à lui, à sa jeunesse, ses amis (Nizan) ses rapports avec l'argent, ses lectures. Il dénonce, à tous le "comédien", qu'il a été, assoiffé de vérités immédiates, à la recherche d'une éthique de l'authenticité. [SDM]

The problem of method by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

10 editions published between 1986 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 83 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
