Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Jean Paul Sartre is still widely regarded as France's most famous and influential philosopher. The New Sartre presents a radical reassessment of Sartre's work, the first systematic study of Sartre's relationship to postmodernism.The book presents the reader with a detailed analysis of Sartre's entire oeuvre, from the 1930s to the 1970s, focussing in particular on his two main philosophical texts, Being and Nothingness and The Critique of Dialectical Reason. A fundamental revaluation of one of the central figures of 20th Century thought, The New Sartre highlights the critical value and enduring relevance of Sartre's work to our postmodern times.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 177-185) and index.
