Post-War Reflections

A compact collection of eight wide-ranging essays by Sartre from the immediate postwar years.

Iconic French novelist, playwright, and essayist Jean-Paul Sartre is widely recognized as one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century, and his 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 editions.
Post-War Reflections collects eight of Sartre’s essays that were written in his most creative period, just after World War II. Sartre’s extraordinary range of engagement is manifest in this collection, which features writings on postwar America, the social impact of war in Europe, contemporary philosophy, race, and avant-garde art.
