Jean-Paul Sartre - August 26th 2012, 12:49 AM

Sartre, possibly my favorite philosopher, if not perosn of the 20th century. I was wondering what everyone else thought of him.

I prefer Kierkegaard's existentialism to Sartre's.

Aside from the oft-quoted line one of his characters utters in No Exit - "hell is other people" - which is most amusing and somewhat bleak at the same time, I must confess my knowledge of his philosophy and related arguments is somewhat superficial. I imagine if I went over it again I'd probably recognise it, but suffice it to say what I have read of it hasn't made much impression on me. Sorry. To be honest, that's probably more a reflection on me than on Sartre...

"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." - Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom

However bleak things seem, however insurmountable the darkness appears, remember that you have worth and nothing can take that away.

I like Existentialism Is A Humanism, I find the majority of his assertions in it to be both intelligently conceived and put forward. Also, his statement most commonly translated as 'existence precedes essence', referring uniquely to humans, holds some value to me.

It's no surprise that you'll soon forget about me
