Jean-Paul Sartre and the Jewish question : anti-antisemitism and the politics of the French intellectual by Jonathan Judaken( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 1,523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

?All serious readers of Sartre's Anti-Semite and Jew should read Jonathan Judaken's Jean-Paul Sartre and the Jewish Question in order to understand its place in Sartre's oeuvre. Judaken has taken our understanding of this important text to a new level."?Robert Bernasconi, author of How to Read Sartre?Jonathan Judaken's book takes commentary on Sartre to a new level and simultaneously provides a thought-provoking example of what the author terms?the cultural history of ideas,? that is, a study of thought that both attends to its conceptual complexity and situates it within a larger sociocultural and political matrix. It also offers the first investigation of Sartre that systematically takes as its guide the pivotal importance of his influential reflections on the Jewish Question.??Dominick LaCapra, Bowmar Professor of Humanistic Studies, Cornell University Jean-Paul Sartre and the Jewish Question examines the image of?the Jew? in Sartre?s work to rethink not only his oeuvre but also the role of the intellectual in France and the politics and ethics of existentialism. It explores more broadly how French identity is defined through the abstraction and allegorization of?the Jew? and examines the role anti-antisemitic intellectuals play in this process. Jonathan Judaken reconsiders the origins of the intellectual in France in the context of the Dreyfus affair and Sartre?s interventions in the parallel Franco-French conflicts in the 1930s and during the Vichy regime. He considers what it was possible to say on behalf of Jews and Judaism during the German occupation, Sartre?s contribution after the war to the Vichy syndrome, his positions on the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the ways Sartre?s reflections on the Jewish Question served as a template for his shift toward Marxism, his resistance to colonialism, and for the defining of debates about Jews and Judaism in postwar France by both Jewish and non-Jewish intellectuals. Judaken analyzes the texts that Sartre devoted to these issues and argues that?the Jew? constituted a foil Sartre consistently referenced in reflecting on politics in general and on the role of the intellectual in particular
Race after Sartre : antiracism, Africana existentialism, postcolonialism( )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Race After Sartre is the first book to systematically interrogate Jean-Paul Sartre's antiracist politics and his largely unrecognized contributions to critical race theories, postcolonialism, and Africana existentialism. The contributors offer an overview of Sartre's positions on racism as they changed throughout the course of his life, providing a coherent account of the various ways in which he understood how racism could be articulated and opposed. They interrogate his numerous and influential works on the topic, and his insights are utilized to assess some of today's racial quandaries. The contributors also consider Sartre's impact upon the insurgent antiracist activists and writers who also walked the roads to freedom that Sartre helped pave."--Jacket
Situating existentialism : key texts in context( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This anthology provides a history of the systemization and canonization of existentialism, a quintessentially antisystemic mode of thought. Situating existentialism within the history of ideas, it features new readings on the most influential works in the existential canon, exploring their formative contexts and the cultural dialogues of which they were a part
Naming race, naming racisms by Jonathan Judaken( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eschewing social scientific approaches, which tend to examine race and racism in terms of quasi-static ideal types, this book surveys differing historical contexts from the era of scientific racism in the nineteenth-century to the post-racial racism of the post 9/11 period, and from Europe to the United States, in order to understand how racism has been articulated in differing situations. It is distinguished by the attention it pays to the on-going power of racial discourse in the contemporary period as a legitimating factor in oppression. It exemplifies methodological openness, combining
