Summary: A monumental work of the twentieth century, Being and Nothingness is the fullest expression of Jean-Paul Sartre's philosophy of existentialism. First published in 1943, this masterpiece still defines and expresses the modern condition, and holds great relevance for contemporary readers.

Existentialism rejects the Cartesian duality of mind and matter, as well as supernatural authority, and claims instead that "being" comes before "knowing,&quo

Included is a key to special terminology, both the technical terms coined by Sartre and familiar words to which he assigned special meanings.
