The Work of Sartre: Introduction (1979), Introduction (2012)

According to Sartre, the freedom of thought means emancipatory thinking, looking for alternatives and opposing the established structures of life and the institutionalised mainstream reasoning. His search for intellectual and political alternatives always inspired progressive movements to act on personal responsibility. "What is the literature of an epoch but the epoch appropriated by its literature? …You have to aspire to everything to have hopes of doing something."
