"What I have just written is false. True. Neither true nor false, like
everything one writes about madmen, about men." With these sentences, Jean-Paul
Sartre undermines the truthfulness of his own autobiography, "Les Mots."
Undeterred by such circumlocutions, Andrew Leak here cuts through Sartre's own
disavowals to unearth the man behind the literary and philosophical giant. This
biographical study integrates Sartre's works into his personal life, revealing
the intimate contexts in which his philosophy developed. From Sartre's
beginnings as a bright and precocious student, Leak explores how he struggled
against the repressive strictures of bourgeois expectations, endured cruelty at
the hands of schoolmates, and forged his conflicted personality within a
fragmented family life. The book probes his particularly influential
relationships with a range of people--from Simone de Beauvoir to Gaston
Gallimard--and how Sartre was transformed by historical events, in particular
his service in World War II. Telling anecdotes, personal correspondence, and
archival photographs expose how Sartre's own challenges emerged as predominant
themes in his works--such as the often blurred delineation between the real and
imaginary, and his preoccupation with definitions of "madness" in the
individual. Leak's astute and provocative examination of Sartre himself
challenges the philosopher's assertion about the limits of knowledge of the
other.
