Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980) was one of the most iuential thinkers of the twentieth century. Regarded as the father of existentialist philosophy, he was also a political critic, moralist, playwright, novelist, and author of biographies and short stories. Thomas R. Flynn provides the first book-length account of Sartre as a philosopher of the imaginary, mapping the intellectual development of his ideas throughout his life, and building a narrative that is not only philosophical but also attentive to the political and literary dimensions of his work. Exploring Sartres existentialism, politics, ethics, and ontology, this book illuminates the defining ideas of Sartres oeuvre: the literary and the philosophical, the imaginary and the conceptual, his descriptive phenomenology and his phenomenological concept of intentionality, and his conjunction of ethics and politics with an egoless consciousness. It will appeal to all who are interested in Sartres philosophy and its relation to his life. Item Dimensions: 5.98" L x 1.22" W x 8.98" H
