Publisher's Summary

Jean-Paul Sartre, a French philosopher, is perhaps the best known advocate of existentialism. In this view, no external authority gives life meaning: mankind is radically free and responsible. In every moment we choose ourselves, with no assurance that we have a continuing identity or power. We set up determinisms to ease our minds, but in the face of the finality of death, only through our present consciousness do we establish our own authentic existence. Sartre's existentialism faces the evil in human existence and sees that humans are responsible for it.

The Giants of Philosophy is a series of dramatic presentations, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall world view of history's greatest philosophers. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

    "Bad, bad, narration"

    What a shame. I would have been really interested in this audiobook, but having listened to the audio sample it is too unpalatable for my taste. What accent is Sartre supposed to have? Italian? He was FRENCH. If you're going to do an accent for god's sake get the right nationality or better still, a narrator with the correct accent!
    And Charleton Heston?! No, no, no. Aside from his terrible pronunciation of 'Sartre', this kind of actor is totally wrong for this subject matter.
    A missed opportunity by the publisher - I hope another version is made with a more sensible choice of voice actors.

    "A nice quick run-through"

    Not a great deal of depth but a nice introductory guide to Sartre. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.
