Another good piece from him, again. Honestly, this is elementary (and i please everybody to read this) and quite good as introductory for neophyte, before try to another Sartre (or another philosophy).

All you need is thinking and imagination (or sort of, this book escort you to try imagine sth)

Happy reading.

روان شناسی تخیل از اولین آثار سارتر محسوب می شود که همراه "خیال"، اثر دیگری که در همان دوران، و در چارچوب فلسفه ی سارتر (اگزیستانسیالیسم و آزادی بشر) نوشته شده است. با وجودی که تقریبن همه ی آثار معروف سارتر به فارسی ترجمه شده، روان شناسی تخیل یکی از چند رساله ی مهم اوست که در فارسی ندیده ام.

در مورد ژان پل سارتر، مطلبی جداگانه نوشته ام؛

One of my favourite Sartres - very intuitive, not too technical. A good introductory book.
