Sartre Said…

Join Juan Valdes as he shares what French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre believed about the meaning of life.  Pretty sad!
Jean-Paul Sartre, (born June 21, 1905, Paris, France—died April 15, 1980, Paris) Was a French novelist, playwright, and exponent of Existentialism—a philosophy acclaiming the freedom of the individual human being. He devoted himself to leftist causes and is arguably the best known philosopher of the twentieth century.  In 1964 he turned down the Nobel Prize for literature.  The Swedish Academy had selected him for having “exerted a far-reaching influence on our age”.  Yes, but what kind of an influence??  He had lifelong commitments to socialism, anti-fascism and anti-imperialism and his influence is still being felt in the world today.
