    Sartre

    I'm doing a religion assignment on Jean Paul Sartre. Can anyone recommend books/articles/websites/etc. that could be useful in studying his philosophies and work?

    Thanks
    I'm weary with right-angles, abbreviated daylight,
    Waiting for a winter to be done.
    Why do I still see you in every mirrored window,
    In all that I could never overcome?

    Hi Classic - Well, I wouldn't recommend "Being and Nothingness" - started reading this a couple of weeks ago and still haven't managed to get past the introduction - seriously head-mashing! I always thought I had a pretty good handle on logic but I guess I was wrong!

    Good luck with your assignment

    His lecture Existentialism is a Humanism is available on-line. It's a pretty good summary of his philosophy.
    What is the use of a violent kind of delightfulness if there is no pleasure in not getting tired of it.
    - Gertrude Stein

    A washerwoman with her basket; a rook; a red-hot poker; th purples and grey-greens of flowers: some common feeling which held the whole together.
    - Virginia Woolf
