Sintesi dell'editore

Jean-Paul Sartre, a French philosopher, is perhaps the best known advocate of existentialism. In this view, no external authority gives life meaning: mankind is radically free and responsible. In every moment we choose ourselves, with no assurance that we have a continuing identity or power. We set up determinisms to ease our minds, but in the face of the finality of death, only through our present consciousness do we establish our own authentic existence. Sartre's existentialism faces the evil in human existence and sees that humans are responsible for it.

The Giants of Philosophy is a series of dramatic presentations, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall world view of history's greatest philosophers. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

Great intro to Sartre

This was one of my favorite audio series when I was a philosophy student in college. It's narrated by Charleston Heston, who you may know from his starring roll in Planet of the Apes. He has a wonderful voice and brings the basic pillars of each philosophy to life.

Narration is unbearable

I couldn’t get through more than 30 minutes of this because of the comical, very annoying French accent of the narrator. It was on par with Pepe le pew.

The parodic french accent was distracting

Every time Sartre is quoted an over the top ”french” accent is used that sounds like the french knights from Monty Python and the holy grail.

It is very distracting and detracts from the message.

The format in written form is a compact overview over Sartres ideas. Good for a first introduction if you can stand the narration

The great Greek philosophers would not be impresse

Jean-Paul Sartre philosophical thought as a whole is the ramblings of an idiot. Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Etc would not be impressed.

The gist it Sartre.

Sums up his thought and gives some of his background. Not the detailed version of Sartre, but a clear understanding of his views.

Important to understand existentialism

I've always been very interested in Sartre's, I also wrote a paper about his work. This audiobook summarize very well the key points of his investigations. Thank you

So far the best non-Starte explanation of Sartre.

I listened to "The Great Minds of the Wester Intellectual Tradition" by The Great Courses. I was intrigued by many of the minds, including Sartre.

I listened to TGC lectures on Existentialism but found them too academic. I listened to some YouTube lectures too. But I always felt a distance between the implications of what he was trying to say and what I was being taught.

This felt like I was giving Sartre a fair listen. I finally "got" what he meant by "Being in itself", Being for others" and especially "Bad Faith". I can USE this. I can agree and disagree. I can incorporate it into my model of reality. Not just talk about Sartre, which I don't care about.

This philosophy has profound implications about how to live, should you really want to hear them.

If I were starting over, learning about Sartre, I'd start here.

Bad, bad, narration

What a shame. I would have been really interested in this audiobook, but having listened to the audio sample it is too unpalatable for my taste. What accent is Sartre supposed to have? Italian? He was FRENCH. If you're going to do an accent for god's sake get the right nationality or better still, a narrator with the correct accent!
And Charleton Heston?! No, no, no. Aside from his terrible pronunciation of 'Sartre', this kind of actor is totally wrong for this subject matter.
A missed opportunity by the publisher - I hope another version is made with a more sensible choice of voice actors.

A nice quick run-through

Not a great deal of depth but a nice introductory guide to Sartre. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.
