A Critical Analysis of Sartre’s Freedom Philosophy --A Study of “Why Write?”

  •  HUANG Min    


Jean-Paul Sartre is regarded as a leading figure in the 20th-century philosophy due to his great contributions to the theories on existentialism and freedom. One of Sartre’s notable works—“Why Write?” sheds light on his philosophical contemplations on freedom and free will. On Sartre’s upcoming 117 birthday, we make an in-depth analysis into “Why Write?” in an attempt to critically and better learn about Sartre’s Freedom Philosophy. Sartre embraces absolute freedom, a consequence of which, according to Sartre, is full responsibility. However, his notion of freedom is still interspersed with contradictions if we take what he has said about absolute freedom and full responsibility into careful consideration.
