Abstract

How did Jean-Paul Sartre emerge from relative obscurity to become the embodiment of the public intellectual? In The Existentialist Moment: The Rise of Sartre as a Public Intellectual, Patrick Baert traces Sartre’s rise, situating his growing reputation within the context of the political and intellectual landscape of post-war France. David Grunner hails this as a significant and praiseworthy contribution to scholarship that will not only deepen understandings of Sartre as an individual, but also of the contemporary role of the public intellectual.
