Being and Nothingness
This Description may be from another edition of this product.
Revisit one of the most important pillars in modern philosophy with this new English translation--the first in more than 60 years--of Jean-Paul Sartre's seminal treatise on existentialism. This is a philosophy to be reckoned with, both for its own intrinsic power and as a profound symptom of our time (The New York Times).In 1943, Jean-Paul Sartre published his masterpiece, Being and Nothingness, and laid the foundation of his legacy as one of the greatest twentieth century philosophers. A brilliant and radical account of the human condition, Being and Nothingness explores what gives our lives significance. In a new, more accessible translation, this foundational text argues that we alone create our values and our existence is characterized by freedom and the inescapability of choice. Far from being an internal, passive container for our thoughts and experiences, human consciousness is constantly projecting itself to the outside world and imbuing it with meaning. Now with a new foreword by Harvard professor of philosophy Richard Moran, this clear-eyed translation guarantees that the groundbreaking ideas that Sartre introduced in this resonant work will continue to inspire for generations to come.
