Jean-Paul Sartre (French: 1905 – 1980) was a French philosopher, playwright, novelist, political activist, biographer, and literary critic. He was one of the key figures in Existentialism and phenomenology, and one of the leading figures in 20th-century French philosophy and Marxism. His work has influenced sociology, critical theory, post-colonial theory, and literary studies.
Sartre was also noted for his open relationship with prominent feminist and fellow existentialist philosopher and writer Simone de Beauvoir. He was awarded the 1964 Nobel Prize in Literature but rather gracefully refused the honor.
EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION! A fascinating treatment of the great psychotherapist by the great existentialist-Marxist.
