Review quote

"This volume showcases an impressive range of international contributors, who tackle three major aspects of Sartre's philosophy - psychology, ontology, and ethics - in a series of original and thought-provoking essays. The book achieves the remarkable feat of combining accessibility and lucidity with depth and intellectual challenge in a collection which deserves to become a classic for Sartre specialists and novices alike." - Christina Howells, University of Oxfordshow more
