Episode 37 - Jean-Paul Sartre & French Existentialism

In this episode, we tackle Jean-Paul Sartre--chainsmoker, nymphomaniac, and arguably the biggest juggernaut of French existentialism in history. We discuss Sartre's existentialism and its ethical implications, the essence-existence distinction, the importance of atheism in his philosophy, and the idea that we are condemned to be free, and the idea that everything does unfortunately suck and all we can really do is make it suck less. All and more in this episode! Music featured: Beck - Nausea Violent Femmes - Blister in the Sun Rage Against the Machine - Freedom Pink Floyd - Learning to Fly
