Iris Murdoch assesses the different strands of Jean-Paul Sartre's rich and complex work. Sartre's political passions combined with his memorable literary gift place him foremost among the novelists as well as the philosophers of our time. Iris Murdoch discusses the tradition of philosophical, political and aesthetic thought that gives historical authenticity to Sartre's achievement, while showing the ambiguities and dangers inherent in his position.
