Jean Paul Sartre is still widely regarded as France's 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 Yet, to many, his work has been superseded by the work of subsequent poststructuralist and postmodernist philosophers such as Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, Jean Baudrillard and Gilles Deleuze.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 Sartre's work, the first systematic study of Sartre's relationship to postmodernism. This fundamental revaluation of one of the central figures of 20th Century though highlights the critical value and enduring relevance of Sartre's work to our postmodern times.
"The New Sartre presents an entirely convincing and fresh reading of Sartre's relationship to structuralism, post-structuralism and postmodernism....A genuinely illuminating interpretation of Sartre as formative of (rather than opposed to) contemporary French theory and philosophy."
