About this product
- DescriptionThis landmark book, first published in 1979, met acclaim as a doubly important work of radical philosophy. Its subject, Jean-Paul Sartre, was among the twentieth century's most controversial and influential philosophers; its author, Istvan Meszaros, was himself establishing a reputation for profound contributions to the Marxian tradition, which would continue into the next century.The Work of Sartrewas thus considered essential for its insights on Sartre and as a piece of Meszaros's developing politico-philosophical project. In this completely updated and expanded volume, Meszarosexamines the manifold aspects of Sartre's legacy as velist, playwright, philosopher, and political actor and in so doing casts light upon the enture oeuvre, situating it within the historical and social context of Sartre's time. Although critical of aspects of Sartre's philosophy, Meszaros celebrates his unyielding commitment to the struggle against the power of capital, and elucidates what this means for the individual in their search for freedom.
