Read full description of the books:
Witness to My Life is a collection of letters written by Jean-Paul Sartre and edited, compiled, and mostly written to Simone de Beauvoir. Sartre's and Simone's romance was legendary, and in this collection, one can partake of that romance incarnate. Also, this is quite the Romantic work with a capital 'R.' Romanticism is characterized by a trust in intuition and emotion vis-a-vis rational or skeptical understandings about oneself or the world. Almost every page bespeaks this Romanticism. Another reason someone might find this book interesting is that Sartre is developing his philosophical system and sharing it with Simone as it comes to him here. If you're at all curious about existentialism, you can read passages of Sartre's letters that are basically his existentialism in his infancy. This collection is worth reading.

Read information about the authorJean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre, normally known simply as Jean-Paul Sartre, was a French existentialist philosopher and pioneer, dramatist and screenwriter, novelist and critic. He was a leading figure in 20th century French philosophy.
He declined the award of the 1964 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his work which, rich in ideas and filled with the spirit of freedom and the quest for truth, has exerted a far-reaching influence on our age."
In the years around the time of his death, however, existentialism declined in French philosophy and was overtaken by structuralism, represented by Levi-Strauss and, one of Sartre's detractors, Michel Foucault.
