A Legacy Under Attack
The Sartrean legacy in moral philosophy is under siege. While Jean-Paul Sartre is regarded as a well-accomplished writer in philosophy, novel, playwright, and biography, just to name a few, many are convinced that ethics was not his strongest suit. His approach to morality is often rebuked vociferously.
The literature is laden with works that juxtapose Sartre as a moral philosopher. This book interjects a different perspective in the debate. The text examines some of the works that made Jean-Paul Sartre a famous writer, as well as a relevant moral philosopher.
This work proffers a different perspective in the current literary discourse. It offers a thorough, but succinct, exploration of the Sartrean approach to moral philosophy. The text also revisits some of Sartre’s most poignant moments, including his childhood, his trajectory toward literary stardom, and his major accomplishments.
