It was to correct common misconceptions about his thought that Sartre accepted an invitation to speak on October 29, 1945, at the Club Maintenant in Paris. The unstated objective of his lecture (Existentialism Is a Humanism”) was to expound his philosophy as a form of "existentialism”, a term much bandied about at the time. Sartre asserted that existentialism was essential ...more

"What [Christian and atheist existentialists] have in common is simply their belief that existence precedes essence; or, if you prefer, that subjectivity must be our point of departure."

Man is nothing other than what he makes of himself.
— Jean-Paul Sartre

If you are interested in Existentialism, this is the book you should dive into. You will find an energetic Sartre defending his views on many subjects. I was immediately drawn to one opinion in particular: existentialism emphasizes what is despicable about the world. I have read that before. Most people apparently want to read about beauty and bliss and puppies and all those things that are part of one side of our reality. Den

سارتر مش عاجبني يا أم سارتر :DD

حسنًا الكتاب عبارة عن تفريغ لمحاضرة كان سارتر قد ألقاها
للرد على الانتقاضات الموجهة للفلسفة الوجودية
فتحدث في الجزء الأول من الكتاب عن الخطوط العريضة للوجودية
الاعتقاد بالوجود قبل الماهية
وأن الإنسان ما هو إلا حصيلة عمله
عمل الشخص هو الذي يحدد ماهيته ووجوده
بل ويحدد وجود الآخرين أيضًا
وكذا اختياراته التي ستشكل وجوده ووجود من حوله
وضرب مثال الشاب الذي جاء يطلبه النصح في قضيته
هذا المثل الذي استعان به في كل سطر يكتبه
والذي المح نافيل إلى كثرة استعمال سارتر له
والحقيقة أنه ليس

أنا أفكّر إذًا أنا موجود

هكذا راح سارتر وجاء يعرض ويفند ويناقش
وهذه اللافتة لا تفارق يده

الكتاب في الأساس ترجمة لمحاضرة من محاضرات سارتر

وقد اهتم كثيرا فيها بالتأكيد على نقطة أن حرية الفرد مسئولية
وأن الوجودية ليست فلسفة تأملية فقط
بل هي التي تحث الإنسان على أن يصنع ويفعل

والوجودية لا تحرص على الأمل كثيرا

وليست ذلك سوداوية فيها
ولكن لأن الأمل يؤدي بالفرد إلى التراخي وعدم إنجاز عمله بالجهد والمهارة الكافيين


إن هدفي هنا هو الدفاع عن الوجودية ضد كل ما يوجه إليها من انتقادات
فهم يتهمونها أولا بأنها دعوة لل

Reading Sartre’s Existentialism is a Humanism has been as arduous as it has been stimulating, for while I did try to understand his philosophy, I could also acutely discern what challenged my understanding of his work.

To begin with Sartre explains Atheistic Existentialism. He says:

Atheistic existentialism, of which I am a representative, declares with greater consistency that if God does not exist there is at least one being whose existence comes before its essence, a being which exists before

Existentialism is an Essentialism

This is supposed to be the only one of his lectures that Sartre regretted seeing in print. This was primarily because it became accepted as a sort of manifesto piece and thus tended to reduce the original themes. Sartre repeatedly implies that he will not admit to this essay/lecture being considered as an introduction to his philosophy. Again, this is because treating an 'explanation' as an essential component (or worse a summary) of his complex system of philoso

اگر بخواهم این کتاب را در یک جمله خلاصه کنم از نظرم هیچ جمله ای رساتر از "بشر محکوم به آزادی است" نمی تواند باشد
این کتاب به سه بخش اصلی تقسیم شده است. در بخش اول که مهمترین و جذاب ترین بخش کتاب نیز هست "سارتر" سعی بر این دارد که خلاصه ای جامع و کامل از این فلسفه ارایه دهد همچنین پاسخی دهد به ایراداتی که به آن وارد می کنند و در خصوص انحرافاتی که بر اثر کج فهمی آن ایجاد شده شفاف سازی نماید.در این فلسفه "وجود" انسان مقدم بر "ماهیت" اوست، بدین منظور که در آن پیش از اینکه انسان زندگی کند، زندگی به خو

هنگامی که دکارت می گوید: "به جای تسلط بر جهان، باید بر خویشتن مسلط شد" در واقع میخواهد بگوید: عمل کنیم بی آنکه به امید متکی باشیم.

اون روز که این کتاب رو خریدم، به خاطر این بود که با مفهوم اگزیستانسیالیسم در روان درمانی مشکل داشتم و امید داشتم رسیدن به یه درک مستقل از اگزیستانسیالیسم، کمکی باشه برای درک بهترش در روان درمانی. حالا که تونستم بخونمش؛ دیگه با این مفهوم در روان درمانی مشکلی نداشتم و بالاخره تقریبا برام جا افتاده بود، اما مشکل اینجاست این کتاب رو خوب نفهمیدم.

[Please note that the reviewer is a new entrant in the school of existentialism and is attempting to grasp the building blocks. Hence, her inferences can be basic and occasionally, vague too. Those who have spent considerable time in this school can choose to overlook this little account if so deemed fit (although I would love to have them here to elevate my understanding level). For the more tolerant and sagaciously curious, I will go about my way.]

Essentially, “Existentialism Is a Humanism” is

“Existentialism Is a Humanism” is the result of a transcribed lecture Sartre delivered in 1945 responding to several critiques to existentialist theories. Communist detractors accused Existentialism of being a contemplative and bourgeois philosophy that led to quietism while Catholics condemned it for emphasizing what was despicable about humanity, which induced to a hopeless and pessimistic notion of human nature.
Sartre presents his defense dissecting the concept of Existentialism in a very

تصویر جالبیه. اسمش رو گذاشتم: اگزیستانسیالیسم در یک دقیقه.



نوشته های ریزش واضح نیست، گفتم با کیفیت بالاتر بذارم، حجمش بالا میره، ممکنه بعضیا راضی نباشن.

تنها چیزی که میتونم بگم، اینه که ترجمه افتضاح بود. فکر کنم سواد فرانسوی مترجم، در حد سواد فرانسوی من بوده. شاید هم سواد فارسیش کم بوده. نمیدونم، خلاصه به قدری جملات رو بد ترجمه کرده بود که با چهار پنج بار خوندن هم نمیشد حدس زد که سارتر چی میخاسته بگه. راجع به نقطه گذاری هم که بگذریم. وسط جمله یه دفعه نقطه میذاشت، آخر جمله نقطه نمیذاشت و خلاصه هر ج

“In life man commits himself and draws his own portrait, outside of which there is nothing. No doubt this thought may seem harsh to someone who has not made a success of his life. But on the other hand, it helps people to understand that reality alone counts, and that dreams, expectations and hopes only serve to define a man as a broken dream, aborted hopes, and futile expectations.” 144 likes
