Sartre’s essay: “Existentialism Is a Humanism” > check http://marxists.org/reference/archive/sartre/works/exist/sartre.htm for the full Essay.
In it Sartre says: “His mother was living alone with him, deeply afflicted by the semi-treason of his father and by the death of her eldest son, and her one consolation was in this young man. But he, at this moment, had the choice between going to England to join the Free French Forces or of staying near his mother and helping her to live… Which is the more useful aim, the general one of fighting in and for the whole community, or the precise aim of helping one particular person to live? Who can give an answer to that a priori? No one. Nor is it given in any ethical scripture.”
I am here to prove that Sartre's ideologies are crushed by the Islamic Monotheist perspective, and while it was neglected during his era, now the gradual success of his ideological planning prediction of “we shall have disposed of God as an out-of-date hypothesis which will die away quietly of itself” (Sartre), and as this ideology stripped France from its Christian coating to a secular nationalistic one, the Islamic ideology crushes out the French ground with no control by its same indigenous minds to the degree the secular French government banned Islamic religious freedom in particular in a coward response .
The crushing response to his mediocre minded lying “for the act of lying implies the universal value which it denies”(Sartre) from what he mentioned as quoted above is as follow:
It was narrated that Mu’awiyah bin Jahimah As-Sulaimi said:
“I came to the Messenger of Allah (Peace be Upon Him) and said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I want to go for Jihad with you, seeking thereby the Face of Allah and the Hereafter.’ He said: ‘Woe to you! Is your mother still alive?’ I said: ‘Yes.’ He said: ‘Go back and honor her.’ Then I approached him from the other side and said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I want to go for Jihad...
...JeanPaulSartre's Philosophical Writing
JeanPaul Sartre personally believed in the philosophical idea of existentialism, which is demonstrated in his play No Exit. His ideas of existentialism were profoundly outlined in the play. Based on the idea that mental torture is more agonizing than physical, No Exit leaves the reader with mixed emotions towards the importance of consequences for one's acts.
Set in Hell, the vision of the underworld is nothing the characters imagined as they are escorted to a Second Empire styled hotel. This is all ironic, in the fact that Sartre never believed in perdition. He uses this fictitious place to persuade his audience. Hell is used as a foundation to prove his point. The characters, Garcin, Inez, and Estelle, are all brought together by some kind of complicated design that they try to unveil. Each character has a story and a reason for their damnation, but what they look for is an answer for their presence with each other. Garcin, a journalist and pacifist that took 12 to the chest, was the first to attempt to mend matters in the room. His idea to be courteous to one another is later contradicted when he begins to fight with Inez. Estelle, a self-absorbed instigator, appears to suffer from denial.
As these three people sit and argue about their past, their visions of life on earth are gradually fading. When they see how things...
...Responsibility is a self-regulated set of activities which are guided by some ethical and legal principles. Under CSR, companies can decide to take up some initiatives that will help them in complying with the legal standards as well as in making a positive contribution to the society.
d Driving forces of CSR
The driving forces of CSR are many. Firstly, in some countries, CSR is required by laws. For example, in many countries there are environmental laws. These laws require that companies follow some activities so that the environment is not affected. Similarly, in some countries, foreign organizations are required to contribute in the community development projects.
Other driving force is the development of brand image and also revenues. Companies can use their CSR activities and advertise them. This way they create a good reputation for themselves and also can promote their products.
Finally, an important driving factor for CSR is the acceptance of the fact that sustainable growth and development are the only way to survive in the long term. Companies that realize that they can only grow over the long term by helping all the stakeholders to grow and develop set up CSR activities.

No Exit by JeanPaul Sartre
Analyze the play’s title. Be sure to consider the original French: Huis Clos.
Since its first publication in 1944 in French, the play Huis Clos by Jean-Paul Sartre has been translated into numerous languages around the world. The English translations have seen many different titles, including In Camera, No Way Out, and Dead End. The most common and accepted of all the title translation, however, is No Exit. The translation is derived from the literal meanings of the title words in French: “huis” means “door” and “clos” means “closed”. Thus, taken one step further, since the term “closed door” is associated with a sealed-off entrance, the translation became No Exit. However, every language has words and phrases that are exceptions to the rules, idiomatic expressions that only a native French-speaker would be aware of - and “huis clos” is one such phrase. So exactly how accurate is this English translation of “huis clos” from its original French? And what kind of an effect does the plays true title have on the story?
The translation of "huis clos" to “no exit” comes from the literal translation of the phrase, with “huis” translating to “door” and “clos” to “closed”. This derived term, "closed door", explains the translation of Huis Clos to No Exit: a closed door generally creates an image of a barred entrance and no way...
...“It’s always the badly dressed people who are the most interesting.”
June 15th 2015
JeanPaul Gaultier was born on April 24th 1952 in a suburb of Paris. His mother was a clerk and his father was an accountant, so it was his grandmother who introduced him to the fashion world. He began by sending sketches to famous couture stylists at an early age. Pierre Cardin was so impressed by his talent that he actually hired him as an assistant in 1970. After that he worked with Jocques Esterel and Jean Patuo later on, eventually he went back and managed the Pierre Cardin boutique in Manila for a year in 1974. His very first collection was relased in 1976, and his scornful style from 1981 led to being known as the enfant terrible of French Fashion. Many of his collections have been based on street wear, focusing on popuclar culture, while his haute couture collections are very formal yet at the same time unusual and fun. Although most people found his designs degenerate at the time, fashion editors like Melka Treanton of Elle and a few others were impressed by his creativity and mastery of tailoring and later launched his career. Before long, Gaultier became known as the bad boy of the fashion world. He challenged popular notions of gender and drew from edgy street and...
20th Century Philosophy
May 4th, 2014
Jean-Paul Sarte was born in Paris, France in June of 1905 and died there in April of 1980. As a French philosopher and writer, Sartre is considered one of the major intellectual figures of the twentieth century. Sartre serves as a canonical example of existentialist thought in the years following World War II, and is often credited for extending existentialist premises to further extremes. According to him, existentialism is the belief that we are defined by the consequences of our actions; that is, that an individual’s actions reveal the true nature of oneself. This school of thought highlights the precedence of the reasoning person, with tangible individual experience as the source of knowledge. Throughout Sartre’s doctrine there is a an emphasis on the individual, which can be illustrated by the scientist who is not interested in a specific reaction occurring in a petri dish, but instead focuses on the reaction based on how much it can reveal regarding the basic principles that regulate similar cases. Sartre went on to write in Being and Nothingness that one of the most important aspects of consciousness is in the freedom of individuals to always make free choices, and to live their lives towards a personal goal. Based on this, I will argue that certain aspects of Sartre’s...
...The Main issue with J.P. Sartre's Existentialism with both Communists and Christians seems to be that that the Communists and Christians do not accentuate enough on individualism compared to the, and that the world is big and hence society must be a whole and equal. Christians believe that life is a gift from God, and hence Sartre's existentialism seems to undermine Christian belief that life is God's gift, when existentialism tends to show reality of life which would show the depressive, bleak, unfair side of life. Sartre believed himself that the Christians believed that existentialism would be denying the existence of God and of God's moral law, and by destroying moral laws would supposedly lead to Anarchy, of which I personally disagree because it would simply impose freedom of thought and choice, but would cause some Chaos by those who devoutly believe in god.
According to the Communists' for a communist state to be established, there is a need for hope, and engagement in political action, and in order for the individual to reach a political movement they need to believe that their actions could be successful and hence the need for hope. Sartre's existentialism does emphasise on the reality of the human race and hence emphasise on anguish, abandonment, and despair which would undermine the needed hope needed to create and uphold a communist political state.
So by the philosophical idealisms of Sartre, both...
Jean-Paul Charles-Aymard Sartre was born on June 21, 1905, in Paris, France. His father, Jean-Baptiste Sartre, was an officer in the French Navy. His mother, Anne-Marie Schweitzer, was the cousin of Nobel Prize laureate Dr. Albert Schweitzer. Sartre was one year old when his father died. He was raised in Meudon, at the home of his tough grandfather Charles Schweitzer, a high school professor. His early education included music, mathematic, and classical literature. He studied at the Lycee Montaigne and at Lycee Henri IV in Paris. In 1917 his mother married an engineer at the naval yards in La Rochelle. There young Sartre suffered under his controlling stepfather, whom he called an "intruder". Such experiences shaped his character to rebel. After graduating from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in 1929 with a doctorate in philosophy, he served in the French Army from 1929-31. He then served as schoolmaster for several years at Le Havre, Lyon, and Paris. He published his first novel,Nausea, in 1938, and a year later, a volume of short stories entitled The Wall. His literary career, however, was put on hold in 1939 when the French Army was mobilized. He was taken prisoner in June of 1940 and imprisoned in Staleg XIID near Trier. After nine months in the German prison camp, Sartre managed to escape and made his way to Paris where he joined the...
...Existentialism and Human Emotions
by JeanPaul Sartre
Existentialism and Human Emotions
I SHOULD LIKE on this occasion to defend existentialism against some charges which
have been brought against it. First, it has been charged with inviting people to remain in a
kind of desperate quietism because, since no solutions are possible, we should have to
consider action in this world as quite impossible. We should then end up in a philosophy
of contemplation; and since contemplation is a luxury, we come in the end to a bourgeois
philosophy. The communists in particular have made these charges.
On the other hand, we have been charged with dwelling on human degradation, with
pointing up everywhere the sordid, shady, and slimy, and neglecting the gracious and
beautiful, the bright side of human nature; for example, according to Mlle. Mercier, a
Catholic critic, with forgetting the smile of the child. Both sides charge us with having
ignored human solidarity, with considering man as an isolated being. The communists
say that the main reason for this is that we take pure subjectivity, the Cartesian I think, as
our starting point; in other words, the moment in which man becomes fully aware of what
it means to him to be an isolated being; as a result, we are unable to return to a state of
solidarity with the men who are not ourselves, a state which we can never reach in the
