Description - Sartre by Katherine Morris

For many, Jean-Paul Sartre is the iconic, urbane French intellectual, whose message emphasizes the meaninglessness of life and the hellishness of other people; spokesperson for post-war radicalism, his thinking may now seem to be irredeemably passe. Yet in this new introduction to his thought, Katherine Morris portrays Sartre as a brilliant and insightful thinker who possessed a clear and philosophically fruitful viewpoint and presents Sartrean phenomenology as a living, evolving enterprise. The book depicts the relationship between Sartre's methodology and the results of his reflections by focusing on the ways the philosopher, as a human being, explores what it is to be human. What Sartre deems as "bad faith" can serve to alienate philosophers from the richly human world of everyday experience. His methodology offers freedom from such philosophical bad faith, ultimately strengthening the connection between philosophy and the real - that is the human, the lived - world.
