Camus and Sartre by Ronald Aronson

Book Description

Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre first met in 1943, during the German occupation of France. Intellectual as well as political allies, they grew famous overnight after Paris was liberated. But East West tensions began to strain their friendship as they evolved in opposing directions, disagreeing over philosophy, the responsibilities of intellectuals, and what sorts of political changes were necessary or possible. And while Sartre embraced violence as a path to change, Camus sharply opposed it, leading to a bitter and very public falling out in 1952, after which they never spoke again. Ronald Aronson chronicles this riveting story while demonstrating how Camus and Sartre developed first in connection with and then against each other, each keeping the other in his sights long after their break. Combining biography and intellectual history, philosophical and political passion, Camus and Sartre will fascinate anyone interested in these great writers or the world-historical issues that tore them apart.

Books By Author Ronald Aronson

We Have Only This Life to Live by Ronald Aronson We Have Only This Life to Live, Paperback (July 2013)

Philosopher, novelist, playwright, biographer, journalist, and activist, Jean-Paul Sartre was also-and perhaps above all-a great essayist.

Living Without God by Ronald Aronson Living Without God, Paperback / softback (September 2009)

Aronson has a mission: to demonstrate that a life without religion can be coherent, moral, and committed. Offering guidance for atheists, agnostics, secularists, and the undecided, "Living Without God" explores the experience and issues of 21st-century secularists.

Hope Now by Ronald Aronson Hope Now, Paperback (September 2007)

In March of 1980, Le Nouvel Observateur published the final interviews between the philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, then blind and debilitated, and his young assistant, Benny Levy. This work places the interviews in biographical and philosophical perspective to demonstrate how they confirm and contribute to Sartre's overall philosophy.
