Sartre and the Phenomenological Gaze

Sartre and the Phenomenological Gaze

Théâtre Antoine, Paris, April 2, 1948

(p.111) 7 Sartre and the Phenomenological Gaze
Language of the Gun
University of Chicago Press

This chapter begins with an analysis of the phenomenological approach embodied in the work of Jean-Paul Sartre. Sartre's play Les mains sales offers an illustration of this approach. It represents one specific manifestation of the phenomenological that shares with other versions, such as rational action theory, game theory, or theories of emotions, an intense focus on individual decision making—on the deeply internal mental processes that dissect motivations, reasons, and desires and produce individual action.

Keywords:   phenomenological approach, Jean-Paul Sartre, Les mains sales, rational action theory, mental processes, individual action
