"Constatei que estava vivendo uma verdadeira neurose desde que comecei a escrever, desde os 9 até os 50 anos. A neurose, tal como aconteceu com Flaubert, era considerar que nada era mais belo e superior do que escrever. Escrever era criar obras que permaneceriam e a vida de um escritor deveria ser compreendida a partir de suas obras".

Read this for an existentialism class at Michigan State University. The professor made this book wonderful - explained meaning and gave great examples.

Recommends it for: no one. Start the fire with it.
Read it cover to cover and had no idea WHAT I'd read. Perhaps my fault (low IQ?) but did feel better when I read quote by Albert Camus in which he said he'd read the same book and had no idea what Sartre was attempting to say, and I KNOW Camus was bright. I am absolved!

This is an excellent compilation of essays by Jean-Paul Sartre, indexed by topic and presented to make his philosophy more accessible. The book achieves some success on that front, but much of the material from Being and Nothingness is relentless and hard to follow.

I'm pretty sure Sartre was on acid when he wrote his this, but it is very interesting, and he does make some good points.
Frank Spencer
There's an interview with Sartre at the beginning of this one.
