"Displaying a masterful grasp of the texts, the author shows how otherness forces itself upon the existentialist Sartre, gradually constraining him to modify his understanding of consciousness as omnipotent. The issue is Sartre's discovery of the social and its conceptual assimilation into his individualistic, consciousness-oriented philosophy." -Thomas R. Flynn

"This very successful and accessible scholarly book... is simultaneously a succinct and clear overview of Sartre's philosophical works.... and a fresh consideration of Sartre's body of work." -Choice

"Busch's admirably clear and compact discussion is essential reading for Sartre scholars, since it powerfully addresses many issues dividing them... " -Ethics

"... a useful overview of the evolution of Sartre's thought... " -Review of Politics

"... a thought provoking reassessment of Sartre's philosophical career." -Man and World

"... succinct, richly documented survey... " -International Studies in Philosophy
