Morris (philosophy, Oxford U.) provides a critical, but sympathetic of Jean-Paul Sartre, the iconic French intellectual typically cited as the creator of existentialism. The author poses and responds to two compelling questions about Sartre: is he to be taken seriously as a philosopher and, aren't his philosophical concepts irredeemably dated? Morris sketches Sartre as a brilliant, insightful thinker. The book depicts the relationship between his methodology and the results of his thinking by focusing on the way the philosopher as a human being explores what it means to be human.
