The age of reason by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

40 editions published between 1947 and 2009 in English and French and held by 1,725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the bohemian Paris of the late 1930s, focuses on three days in the life of a philosophy teacher named Mathieu who is seeking money to pay for an abortion for his mistress, Marcelle. Sartre analyses the motives of various characters and their actions and takes into account the perceptions of others to give the reader a comprehensive picture of the main character. The Age of Reason is concerned with Sartre's conception of freedom as the ultimate aim of human existence. This work seeks to illustrate the existentialist notion of ultimate freedom through presenting a detailed account of the characters' psychologies as they are forced to make significant decisions in their lives. As the novel progresses, character narratives espouse Sartre's view of what it means to be free and how one operates within the framework of society with this philosophy. This novel is a fictional reprise of some of the main themes in his major philosophical study Being and Nothingness. One of the notions is that ultimately a person's freedom is unassailable as it is fundamentally part of the nothingness that is the imagination and so cannot be taken away or destroyed

"The novel called The case of Sergeant Grischa, is the central piece of a triptych of Grischa, of which the collective title will be a trilogy of the transition.

17 editions published between 1933 and 2001 in English and German and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic 1933 novel provides a vivid picture of life in Germany just before Hitler's takeover and focuses on the lives of a young married couple who struggle to survive in the country's nightmarish economic atmosphere. Fallada captures the turmoil that engulfs Johannes and Bunny Pinneberg as they try to satisfy even their most basic needs in a society in total chaos from incredible, deadly inflation." -- Back cover
