by Paul Vincent Spade
Number of pages: 243
This is a set of class notes for a graduate-level course the author taught in the Fall semester, 1995, on Sartre's early philosophy. The main work, of course, was Being and Nothingness, but we also discussed Husserl's The Idea of Phenomenology, Sartre's Transcendence of the Ego and other works along the way. (Some of them we discussed at length.)
