About This Book
Jean Paul Sartre is still widely regarded as FranceÆs most famous and influential philosopher. Yet, to many, his work has been superseded by the work of subsequent poststructuralist and postmodernist philosophers such as Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, Jean Baudrillard and Gilles Deleuze. The New Sartre presents a radical reassessment of SartreÆs work, the first systematic study of SartreÆs relationship to postmodernism.This fundamental revaluation of one of the central figures of 20th Century thought highlights the critical value and enduring relevance of SartreÆs work to our postmodern times.
