Sartre and Evil: Guidelines for a Struggle

Synopsis

Sartre has more to say about Evil--its origins in, effects on modern man, and how to fight it--than any other philosopher in the 20th century. In this book, the authors examine many of Sartre's literary and philosophical writings for what they have to say about the nature of Evil and its effect on our lives. From this, they evolve guidelines for those wishing to fight Evil in their own lives. Using examples from their experience with human rights violations, the authors suggest that Evil is "any attempt to purposely destroy the freedom of a person," and clearly demonstrate that Sartre's work can be useful as a guide for getting along in the contemporary world.
