Linsenbard, Gail 2000 0-7734-7793-4 176 pages 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. In Notebooks, Sartre offers an analysis, missing in Being and Nothingness, of how one may reflectively overcome bad faith and live one’s life authentically. This book contributes to the general scholarship on Sartre.
Wardman, H. W. 1992 0-7734-9526-6 432 pages This study maintains that Sartre's work and, to some extent, his life, was dominated by the dichotomy of necessity and either freedom or contingency. His changing responses to religion, art, human relationships, and politics are explored.
Silvester, Rosalind 2003 0-7734-6684-3 204 pages This study looks at Jean Sartre’s trilogy through the interdisciplinary angle of philosophy and linguistics. Moving from the conventional study of prose narrative, this book provides a rewarding understanding and appreciation of Sartre’s use of language in Les Chemins de la liberté. With the application of various stylistic procedures, practical examples of textual analysis are given and act as a useful tool for students of stylistics.
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.
