Book description

Most readers of Sartre focus only on the works written at the peak of his influence as a public intellectual in the 1940s, notably Being and Nothingness. Jean-Paul Sartre: Key Concepts aims to reassess Sartre and to introduce readers to the full breadth of his philosophy. Bringing together leading international scholars, the book examines concepts from across Sartre's career, from his initial views on the 'inner life' of conscious experience, to his later conceptions of hope as the binding agent for a common humanity. The book will be invaluable to readers looking for a comprehensive assessment of Sartre's thinking from his early influences to the development of his key concepts, to his legacy.

Reviews

"This volume showcases an impressive range of international contributors, who tackle three major aspects of Sartre's philosophy - psychology, ontology, and ethics - in a series of original and thought-provoking essays. The book achieves the remarkable feat of combining accessibility and lucidity with depth and intellectual challenge in a collection which deserves to become a classic for Sartre specialists and novices alike.'"
