Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This book is interesting because it goes against one of the predominant currents in recent philosophical discussions (namely, that phenomenology is out of date and has been successfully replaced by more contemporary movements), and shows, instead, that Sartre's work in phenomenology offers insights that more recent thinkers have bypassed." -- Jeffner Allen, State University of New York, Binghamton

Sartre's Critique of Dialectical Reason deals with a problem that continues to dominate both continental and Anglo-American thought: the historical character of reason and the question of relativism. This work deals with the issue of relativism in the context of Sartre's later philosophy and contemporary debates on the social-historical character of reason as they emerge, principally, in the works of Foucault, Lyotard, Habermas, Rorty, and Feyerabend.

"Where too many have looked at the early and best known of Sartre's writings, Hendley is drawing from a great range of Sartre's work. He has been careful and perceptive of ambiguities and nuances in Sartre's writing, and uses other philosophers from a variety of points of view to shed light on both issues in epistemology in general and Sartre's resolution of the issue in particular." -- Linda A. Bell, Georgia State University

Steve Hendley is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Birmingham-Southern College.
