    Very quick read and if you're a fast reader, even quicker. In the field of biography, Sartre published in a short volume on the poet Charles Baudelaire. In the eighteenth century, with the atheism of the philosophers, the notion of God was done away with, but not so with the idea that essence precedes existence. There is no God. Death separates the living from the dead; but those who are about to die are also separated from the living since they alone can undergo what is about to happen to them. It would be a still greater mistake to reduce his existentialism to very simplistic elements, such as crude nihilism, as often has been done.

    That is, he evolved a philosophy which concerned itself with existence in all its forms: social, political, religious, and philosophical. He continued by arguing that we need a sense of responsibility for other people and society as a whole which was different from his previous contentions. These works deal with an ineffectual hero in a morally and politically indifferent France before World War II. Real classy.

    Not to mention, I enjoyed the book. The bulk of the story is taken up describing a night spent in a prison cell by three prisoners who have been told they will be shot in the morning. He gave the lecture to answer his critics among the communists and catholics. There are other interesting concepts explored in this book such as morality, anguish, abandonment, despair, and intersubjectivity. A leading figure in 20th-century French philosophy, he was an exponent of a philosophy of existence known as existentialism. Atheistic existentialism, which I represent, is more coherent.
