2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Charles Comer on March 5, 2013
Particularly for undergrads, Sartre scholarship nearly always circles around Being and Nothingness, and what we might call "atomistic existentialism", that being the thesis that freedom is predominantly a singular affair. However, Sartre developed his social theory over his long career, incorporating Marxism only to qualify it later. In the end, through tomes no less expansive as Being and Nothingness, such as Critique of Dialectical Reason and scads of occasional writings, Sartre wrote a philosophy that rides on his early existentialism but yet abandons some early theses about freedom, responsibility, and what we take from, and owe, others. This book by one of the best scholars of Sartre and Existentialism, Tom Flynn, synthesizes Sartre's career in an accessible and useful study. This is highly recommended for students of existentialism, latter-day Marxism, and most certainly Sartre. It distills literally thousands of pages into a fraction of that, and, more importantly, guides the reader to the very important sections in books such as the two volumes of the Critique of Dialectical Reason: Volume II [ CRITIQUE OF DIALECTICAL REASON: VOLUME II BY Sartre, Jean-Paul ( Author ) Jul-17-2006, the Flaubert study, the Genet study, and certainly all the essays collected in assorted anthologies.

Flynn's writing is clear and useful, and he is very thorough, pointing the scholar to other places where his picture of Sartre can be both substantiated and perhaps qualified.
