Essays in Aesthetics by Jean-Paul Sartre

Essays in Aesthetics

by Jean-Paul Sartre

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
4 Hrs. 20 Min.


Renowned French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre references artists such as Tintoretto, Calder, Lapoujade, Titian, Raphael, and Michaelangelo in discussing how great art of the past relates to the challenges of his era. Essays in Aesthetics is a provocative collection that considers the nature of art and its meaning. Sartre considers the artist's "function", and the relation of art and the artist to the human condition. Sartre integrates his deep concern for the sensibilities of the artist with a fascinating analysis of the techniques of the artist as creator. The result is a vibrant manifesto of existentialist aesthetics.
