Truth and Existence, written in response to Martin HeideggersEssence of Truth, is a product of the years when Sartre was reaching full stature as a philosopher, novelist, playwright, essayist, and political activist. This concise and engaging text not only presents Sartres ontology of truth but also addresses the key moral questions of freedom, action, and bad faith. Truth and Existenceis introduced by an extended biographical, historical, and analytical essay by Ronald Aronson. Truth and Existenceis another important element in the recently published links between Sartres existentialist ontology and his later ethical, political, and literary concerns. . . . The excellent introduction by Aronson will help readers not experienced in reading Sartre.--Choice Accompanied by an excellent introduction, this dense, lucidly translated treatise reveals Sartre as a characteristically 20th-century figure.--Publishers Weekly Jean-Paul Sartre (1906-1980) was offered, but declined, the Nobel Prize for literature in 1964. His many works of fiction, drama, and philosophy include the monumental study of Flaubert,The Family Idiot, andThe Freud Scenario, both published in translation by the University of Chicago Press.
