Great philosopher. I think he might be more known for his political statements and alternative life style than for his philosophy, but finally the latter was the foundation for how he lived his live. There is no higher authority that can get you off your freedom of choice, every human being has to decide for himself what to do.

Tried reading Being and Nothingness, but it's hardcore reading. I've been meaning to read Nausea for sometime. There ARE alot of connections between existentialsim and Eastern Philosophy because both claim that this existence is the highest one attainable. Hence the connection between recognising 'Bad Faith' and spiritual enlightenment. Depressing? Maybe, but if can acknowledge your existence as being finite it can be very empowering. He was also quite emblematic part of French society. In otherwords, if you don't understand Satre you won't understand the French. I'm quite impressed with both albeit with a pinch of salt.

Existentionalist, promiscuous, Extreme left radical athiest. Claimes that he is sofline but said that all those to the right of center should be lined up and shot, Violence is good, revolution is good. Said that either God exists or free will exist, since free will exist then there cannot be a God. His promiscuous bisexual defacto was the radical-feminist writer 'Simone de Beauvoir'.

If you want to know what the 'New-Left' is about then read this guy. If you value morals: Avoid his twisted comments!

I went through a period of being really interested in Existentialism, brought about mostly by reading Sartre’s great novel “Nausea.” In many ways it’s a pretty depressing world-view, but if it makes sense to you, whether it’s depressing or not is kind of beside the point. “Being and Nothingness” is sitting on my bookshelf, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to read it. Sartre’s fiction is definitely easier to get through than his philosophy. Is it just me, or does Existentialism seems to have a lot in common (with some major differences, of course) with Eastern religions?
