Jean-Paul Sartre

a.k.a. Jean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre

Author Code: FJPS

Born: Jun. 21, 1905 - Paris, France

Died: Apr. 15, 1980 - Paris, France

Related to Albert Schweitzer on his mother's side, Sartre was educated at the Ecole Normale Superieur where he received a doctorate in philosophy. He met Simone de Beauvoir at the ENS in 1929 and the two became lifelong friends and sometimes lovers. Sartre was drafted in 1929 and served two years in the French Army, with some time spent in Algeria. He was again drafted in 1939 and was captured by the Germans in 1940 and spent nine months as a POW. During his incarceration he wrote Bariona, fils du tonnere, his first play. Released in 1941 due to poor health, he returned to Paris and resumed teaching at the Lycee Pasteur. Together with Beauvoir and others he founded Socialisme et Liberte, an underground group that failed to achieve a following. In 1943, he published Being and Nothingness, his principal philosophical work. Following the liberation of Paris in 1944, he published Anti-Semite and Jew. Following the war in late 1945, Sartre set up the Modern Times (Les Temps Moderne) journal which reviewed literature and politics. He began writing full-time, adopted Marxism, and came out politically against French rule in Algeria. Later he would oppose the Vietnam war. In 1960, he published Critique of Dialectical Reason, a major work in existentialism. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1964 and became the first person ever to decline the prize. He was active throughout his life in left-wing political causes; supporting Castro in Cuba, the 1968 Paris strikes and was part of the Bertrand Russell Tribunal. Sartre is one of the leading figures in 20th Century French philosophy. His other works include The Wall (1939), No Exit (1944), The Victors (1946), The Devil and the Good Lord (1951), Search Fora Method (1957), The Trojan Women (1965), The Family Idiot (1971) and War Diaries: Notebooks From a Phony War (1984 Posthumous).
