Being and nothingness : an essay on phenomenological ontology by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

604 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 15 languages and held by 7,953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often criticized, and all too rarely understood, the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre encompasses the dilemmas and aspirations of the individual in contemporary society. The principal text of the modern existentialist movement, Being and Nothingness contains the basic tenets of his thought. A work of inherent power and epic score, it provides a vivid analysis for all who would understand one of the most influential philosophic movements of our time
Situations by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

355 editions published between 1947 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 7,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Situations III, published in English for the first time in the form that Sartre himself gave to the collection, contains essays from the philosopher's most creative period, 1945-49. The first section, comprising articles written at the end of World War II and published variously in Paris, New York and London, conveys Sartre's immediate post-War reflections on collaboration, resistance and liberation. Part Two brings together the most telling of the pieces that reflect his long trip to the USA in January-May 1945. After a lucid philosophical exposition of the failings of philosophical materialism in Part Three, Sartre focuses in the fourth section on the new revolutionary poetry of 'Negritude' in the famous long essay 'Black Orpheus'. Part Five is devoted to meditations on the visual arts, with penetrating essays on the work of Alberto Giacometti and Alexander Calder, both of whom Sartre knew well."--Jacket
Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

826 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 29 languages and held by 6,925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the 1964 Nobel Prize for Literature, Jean-Paul Sartre, French philosopher, critic, novelist, and dramatist, holds a position of singular eminence in the world of letters. Among readers and critics familiar with the whole of Sartre's work, it is generally recognized that his earliest novel, La Nausée (first published in 1938), is his finest and most significant. It is unquestionably a key novel of the twentieth century and a landmark in Existentialist fiction. Nausea is the story of Antoine Roquentin, a French writer who is horrified at his own existence. In impressionistic, diary form he ruthlessly catalogues his every feeling and sensation. His thoughts culminate in a pervasive, overpowering feeling of nausea which "spreads at the bottom of the viscous puddle, at the bottom of our time -- the time of purple suspenders and broken chair seats; it is made of wide, soft instants, spreading at the edge, like an oil stain." Roquentin's efforts to come to terms with life, his philosophical and psychological struggles, give Sartre the opportunity to dramatize the tenets of his Existentialist creed
The wall (Intimacy) and other stories by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

789 editions published between 1939 and 2013 in 23 languages and held by 4,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the five stories included in this collection - "The Wall," "The Room," "Erostratus," "Intimacy" and "The Childhood of a Leader"--The French master of Existentialism displays his powers of narrative and psychological insight in the stories of a modern Erostratus who is compelled to murder, a psychotic who communicates his hallucinations to his formerly-sane spouse, an unfaithful wife still bound to her importent husband, a boy's metamorphosis into an anti-semitic fascist, and the astonishing fate of a political prisoner

". Saint Genet is Jean-Paul Sartre & rsquo;s classic biography of Jean Genet & amp;mdash;thief, convict, and great artist & amp;mdash;a character of almost legendary proportions whose influence grows stronger with time. Bringing together two of the century & amp;rsquo;s greatest minds and artists, Saint Genet is at once a compelling psychological portrait, masterpiece of literary criticism, and one of Sartre & amp;rsquo;s most personal and inspired philosophical creations."
Baudelaire by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

Sartre's study of Baudelaire is one of the more brilliant achievements of modern criticism. He turned abstractions like Existence and Being, Freedom and Nature, into a theory of psychoanalysis, grounded in man's creativity and opposed to Freudian determinism. Then he put the theory into practice in this book on Baudelaire
Search for a method by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

107 editions published between 1953 and 2005 in 10 languages and held by 2,337 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
The transcendence of the ego : an existentialist theory of consciousness by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

174 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 2,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Transcendence of the Ego may be regarded as a turning-point in the philosophical development of Jean-Paul Sartre. Prior to the writing of this essay, published in France in 1937, Sartre had been intimately acquainted with the phenomenological movement which originated in Germany with Edmund Husserl. It is a fundamental tenet of Husserl, the notion of a transcendent ego, which is here attacked by Sartre. This disagreement with Husserl has great importance for Sartre and facilitated the transition from phenomenology to the doctrine of Being and Nothingness

Adieux : a farewell to Sartre by Simone de Beauvoir( Book )

55 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Dust Jacket: In Adieux: A Farewell to Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir uses Jean-Paul Sartre's last ten years as a focus for understanding his entire life. Through her eyes, we see an intimate portrait of the man who was widely recognized as one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century-the foremost philosopher of existentialism, a Nobel Prize-winning playwright, and a central figure in almost every major philosophical, political, literary, and social issue of our time. De Beauvoir was Sartre's closet friend, his intellectual companion, and, intermittently, his lover, from his early twenties until his death. It is she who tells his story in Adieux. She begins with a year-by-year memoir of Sartre's last decade: his political involvements, his work on Flaubert, his friendships, his relationship with her, his slow demise. The second and longer part of the book is a conversation between Sartre and De Beauvoir about his entire life and work. Unguarded, lucid, and incisive, Sartre talks about the origins of his philosophy, the inspiration for his fiction, and the conviction behind his activism. But more than a philosophical book, Adieux is a personal dialogue of astonishing candor. Sartre openly discusses his relationships with women-a subject which seems to pain De Beauvoir even now; his ugliness; his fear of passion. And in one of the most moving passages in Adieux, De Beauvoir anticipates Sartre's death. She knows he is dying, but she cannot tell him. Existentialism's acceptance of death does not console her. Adieux reveals the inner Sartre and the inner De Beauvoir, and illuminates one of the most extraordinary relationships of our century
No exit (Huis clos) a play in one act, & the flies (Les mouches) a play in three acts by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

187 editions published between 1945 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 2,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No Exit is an unforgettable portrayal of hell. The Flies is a modern reworking of the Electra-Orestes story. Dirty Hands is about a young intellectual torn between theory and praxis. The Respectful Prostitute is a scathing attack on American racism
