Aesthetics in Sartre and Camus. The Challenge of Freedom

Translated by Catherine Atkinson

Series:

Heiner Wittmann

Aesthetics in Sartre and Camus examines the ideas on aesthetics expressed in the oeuvres of the two French authors. The dispute that arose following the publication of Camus’ L’homme révolté and Sartre’s criticism of Camus’ book culminated in the break up of their friendship in 1952, thereby underlining the differences in the authors’ thinking. But by observing the function and significance of art and freedom in their works, fundamental correspondences and areas of agreement are revealed in Sartre’s and Camus’ writings and are analysed in the present study.
