    In Being and Nothingness, Jean-Paul Sartre closely examines ontology (the study of the nature of being) and discusses empirical issues that he finds scientific fields struggle to explain. Above all, he delves into the idea of “freedom over choice”, which states that humans have complete and total responsibility over their actions. While taking care to address, build on, and refute the works of Descartes, Husserl, Hegel, and other earlier philosophers, Sartre covers “Being-for-itself”, “Being-for-others”, and ethics.

    Jlongtorso says: "Cannot listen to the narration."
    "Excellent book, poor narration"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd recommend the actual book, but not the Audible version.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Pam Tierney’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This is a short book and the narrator rushes through one sentence to the next. The content is condensed and some sentences require a moment for thought and processing, but the monotone and hasty narration makes it hard to follow.
