Filosofia, politica, letteratura: Jean-Paul Sartre, 1938-1946

Sartre, Existence, Being, Contingency, Freedom, Responsibility


In the youthful phases of his thought, Sartre’s discovery is Husserl’s phenomenology, the idea of “cogito cogitatum”, and Heidegger’s notion of the existence like being-in-the world. Even though he starts from the world’s primacy on the man, afterwards Sartre declares the absolute freedom of the man “en-situation”. In the postwar period he analyses the Jewish’s issue and explains that his existentialism isn’t a contemplative philosophy: he pass from the discovery of the existence’s contingency to the concept of the “engagement” like the writer’s necessity. Convinced that «chaque homme est politique», he thinks about the intellectual work and suggests an order’s swing
