"Using Sartre" is an introduction to the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre which promotes Sartrean views but adopts a consistently analytical approach to him. Concentrating on his early philosophy, up to and including Sartre's masterwork "Being and Nothingness, " Gregory McCulloch demonstrates how much analytical philosophers miss when they neglect Sartre and the continental tradition in philosophy.
In the classic spirit of analytical philosophy, "Using Sartre" is a clear and pithy exposition of Sartre's early work. Written specifically for beginners and non-specialists, the book is sure to spark new interest in Sartre and the existentialists while also making a significant contribution to the analytical philosophy of mind. It indicates how the analytical and continental approaches to philosophy may be brought into closer relation to one another.
""Using Sartre will be a welcome addition to the materials with the aid of which an analytically trained undergraduate can study Sartre's philosophy. The book immediately engages the reader with its directness and informality of style."
