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

545 editions published between 1930 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 7,822 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

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

Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

234 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 3,715 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

Existentialism and humanism by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

201 editions published between 1943 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 2,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the existential movement in France has had almost a popular success, it is much more than passing fashion in ideas. It has over a century of history behind it, and is already entitled to rank as one of those movements of revolt against over-systematization in philosophy which have occurred from time to time in the course of Western thought, with corrective or stimulating effect. And although existentialism is often described as anti-historical, and in a sense it is, its advocates show no lack of interest in their historical antecedents. The present translation of a lecture by Jean-Paul Sartre, followed by a discussion, may therefore be usefully prefaced by a brief account of the school of thought which it represents

339 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Search for a method by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

142 editions published between 1953 and 2005 in 11 languages and held by 2,511 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

Sartre's study of Baudelaire is one of the more brilliant achievements of modern criticism.

The transcendence of the ego : an existentialist theory of consciousness by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

157 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 2,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in France in 1937, this essay marked a turning point in Sartre's philosophical development. Before writing it, he had been closely allied with phenomenologists such as Husserl and Heidegger. Here, however, Sartre attacked Husserl's notion of a transcendental ego. The break with Husserl, in turn, facilitated Sartre's transition from phenomenology to the existentialist doctrines of his masterwork, Being and Nothingness, which was completed a few years later while the author was a prisoner of war. --From publisher's description
