9. The Provocations of Existentialism - Part 2 of Our Discussion of Sartre's "Existentialism Is A Humanism"
In this session of the thinkPhilosophy podcast, we return to Sartre's existentialist ideas to further analyze why Existentialism is and should be a provocation for us to reflect on the choices we make and the actions we take in the world. We also bring Sartre's ideas into contact with those of previous thinkers with whom we have engaged - namely Beauvoir and Appiah - as well as mentioning some others along the way!
[Please Note: At one point, I mention Kant in a reference to a portion of the original discussion on the difference between Sartre and Kant that was cut from this edited version. You can ignore this comment - my apologies!]
