Sartre on Sin

Between Being and Nothingness

Kate Kirkpatrick

Oxford Theology and Religion Monographs

  • Demonstrates the profound influence of a Christian concept--original sin--on Sartre's existentialism
  • Argues that Sartre's philosophy can serve as a useful stimulus for thinking about the relevance of the concept of sin today
  • Offers a close analysis of Sartre's landmark text, Being and Nothingness, reading his concept of freedom in a new light
  • Opens up a rich and unmined vein of theological influence and inheritance
