Jean-Paul Sartre's "Existentialism Is a Humanism"
Read Sartre's 1946 lecture titled "Existentialism Is a Humanism". As you read, note the reasons Sartre argues that existentialism is a humanism. Also pay close attention to the criticisms of existentialism that Sartre addresses, making a list of each
criticism and how Sartre counters them. Consider the validity of these criticisms and whether you agree with any of them. Sartre argues that existentialism does not lead to isolationism and quietism, but rather that existentialism conceives the human
subject as always in the world, with others. Pay close attention to how Sartre lays out and justifies this argument.
