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.
On Revolution includes a long essay in two parts in which Sartre dwells upon the ‘myth’ of revolution and goes on to analyse revolutionary ideas in fascism and, especially, Marxism. In the second essay, he examines the figure of the ‘artist’ and his conscience, especially in relation to communism.
