About this product
- DescriptionFrom the beginning to the end of his philosophizing, Sartre appears to have been concerned with bad faith -our natural disposition to flee from our freedom and to lie to ourselves. Virtually aspect of his monumental system has generated more attention. Yet bad faith has been plagued by misinterpretation and misunderstanding. At the same time, Sartre's correlative concepts of good faith and authenticity have suffered neglect or insufficient attention, or been confused and wrongly identified by Sartre scholars, even by Sartre himself. Ronald E. Santoni takes on the challenge of distinguishing these concepts, and of showing whether either or both existential attitudes afford deliverance from the hell of Sartre's bad faith. He offers the first fill-scale analysis, reconstruction, and differentiation of these ways of existing as they develop in Sartre's early works (1937-1947). Although he attempts to redeem Sartre's slighted concept of good faith, Santoni warns that it must t be viewed interchangeably with authenticity. Further, in one of the earliest and most sustained studies of Sartre's Notebooks for an Ethics available in English, Santoni shows how Sartre's posthumously published tes for an ethics of Salvation confirm his differentiation and argument. The way out of Sartrean hell, Santoni insists, is authenticity-living with fidelity to our unjustifiable freedom and assuming responsibility for it.
