Re: [Sartre] (unknown)
I think that from Hegel it can be learned that it does not matter if Sartre wrote it or not. What matters is that history gave it importance. If Sartre did not write it, it would change all the meaning it does/coulde has/had. This isn't literature or history group. We are discussing existentialist ideas. At least I hope.

- I disagree. When you find parts of B&N hard to follow, don't spend an hour
struggling through a couple of paragraphs, instead do try to read through
like it were a novel. Sartre often repeats himself, saying one thing in a
variety of ways. An idea that you didn't pick up on at first you may well
pick up on later. Also, if you are having trouble read it in conjunction
with some secondary literature. Arthur C. Danto's book "Sartre" is good for
begginers, and there is also Catalano's excellent "A Commentary on Jean-Paul
Sartre's Being and Nothingness" to help you out.
