Steven Churchill and Jack Reynolds, Jean-Paul Sartre: Key Concepts (Acumen: 2013)
Most readers of Sartre focus only on the works written at the peak of his influence as a public intellectual in the 1940s, notably Being and Nothingness. Jean-Paul Sartre: Key Concepts aims to reassess Sartre and to introduce readers to the full breadth of his philosophy. Bringing together leading international scholars, the book examines concepts from across Sartre’s career, from his initial views on the “inner life” of conscious experience, to his later conceptions of hope as the binding agent for a common humanity. The book will be invaluable to readers looking for a comprehensive assessment of Sartre’s thinking – from his early influences to the development of his key concepts, to his legacy.
