The Work of Sartre: Search for Freedom and the Challenge of History

István Mészáros


This landmark e-book, first released in 1979, met acclaim as a doubly vital paintings of radical philosophy. Its topic, Jean-Paul Sartre, was once one of the 20th century's so much arguable and influential philosophers; its writer, István Mészáros, used to be himself developing a name for profound contributions to the Marxian culture, which might proceed into the subsequent century. 

The paintings of Sartre was hence thought of crucial for its insights on Sartre and as a bit of Mészáros 's constructing politico-philosophical venture.   during this thoroughly up-to-date and improved volume, Mészáros examines the manifold facets of Sartre's legacy—as novelist, playwright, thinker, and political actor—and in so doing casts mild upon the enture oeuvre, situating it in the historic and social context of Sartre's time. even if severe of points of Sartre's philosophy, Mészáros celebrates his unyielding dedication to the fight opposed to the facility of capital, and elucidates what this implies for the person of their look for freedom.
