Linsenbard, Gail

This study explores Sartre’s reflections on morality in his posthumously published Cahiers Pour Une Morale. In particular it describes and elucidates the key concepts and ideas that might suggest Sartre’s conception of ‘une morale’ in 1947-48.

This book contributes to the general scholarship on Sartre.

Self in the Theoretical Writings of Sartre and Kant
Darnell, Michelle R.
2005 0-7734-6012-8 168 pages
This book argues that Kant and Sartre share a significant number of fundamental philosophical theses by exploring Sartre’s critiques against Kant. Beginning with The Transcendence of the Ego, it is shown that Sartre’s misconception of transcendental philosophy resulted in him not giving sufficient consideration to the ontological claims made by Kant in The Critique of Pure Reason, which led to Sartre’s confusion on the relation between Kant’s and his own account of self. After a consideration of their views on what the self is, Sartre’s writings on the reflective and the pre-reflective cogito in Being and Nothingness are compared to Kant’s accounts of inner sense and apperception. Ultimately, it is shown that the task of knowing self exemplifies the more general problem of the metaphysical and epistemic relation of subject to objects, and, like Kant, Sartre draws a transcendental distinction between things as they appear and as they are in themselves.
