Iconic French novelist, playwright and essayist, Jean-Paul Sartre (1905–1980) is widely recognized as one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century, whose work has remained relevant and thought-provoking through the decades. The Seagull Sartre Library now presents some of his most incisive philosophical, cultural, and literary critical essays in twelve newly designed and affordable volumes.
This volume consists of a single long essay that analyses the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908–1961), the leading phenomenological philosopher in France who was the lead editor of the influential leftist journal Les Temps modernes, which he established with Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir in 1945. Written following Merleau-Ponty’s death, this essay is a moving tribute from one major philosopher to another.
