Sartre: Existentialism and Romanticism
Interpretation and Culture
By Roy Kalay
Click to Enlarge

Sartres existentialism won great popularity on the one hand and was widely criticized on the other, because it presents an extreme of the individual as absolute freedom: freedom to create his own identity and meaning of life, freedom to challenge the conventions of morality and determine the values of good and evil by which he lives, and freedom to break the conventional aesthetic values and create aesthetic forms which express his feelings and thoughts. This book connects this concept and another radical concept of the individual as freedom: romanticism. Its aim is to show that at the heart of Sartres philosophy is a cohesive core of romantic ideas that influenced his existentialist thought.

The first part of the book deals with Sartres view of man man is absolute freedom, and the second part deals with Sartres perception of the author, who, in his view, has a special status: the author has a special connection to freedom and is closer than other people to understanding human existence as freedom. The book shows how the romantic notion of the artist and of man is present in Sartre: How the Romantic notion of the artists artistic freedom is present in Sartres perception of man as freedom, how romantic admiration for the genius of the artist is present in Sartres perception of the author and the special status he attributes to him in human society, how the Romantic preference of imagination over reason and science over art is present in Sartres thought and in his perception of the relationship between freedom and between imagination and art.
