    From amongst Sartre’s ‘Sexualities’, I liked the chapter called Maternal Love. It is about Caroline Flaubert, the mother of my favourite writer Gustave Flaubert. She was a daughter of a doctor and later she married a doctor. It meant to have ‘death for a neighbour, naked, familiar’, for all the members of such families. To put up with the fact would be different for each of them. Flaubert himself was affected by a nervous breakdown and melancholia. I can understand very well the term a ‘domestic From amongst Sartre’s ‘Sexualities’, I liked the chapter called Maternal Love. It is about Caroline Flaubert, the mother of my favourite writer Gustave Flaubert. She was a daughter of a doctor and later she married a doctor. It meant to have ‘death for a neighbour, naked, familiar’, for all the members of such families. To put up with the fact would be different for each of them. Flaubert himself was affected by a nervous breakdown and melancholia. I can understand very well the term a ‘domestic Stalinism’, and the suffering of a later de-Stalinized person. Well, the hypothetical statement of Sartre that Mme Flaubert was never upset or jealous, thus, she was neither a hysterical wife, makes me think of Mme Bovary by Gustave Flaubert who represents just the opposite. Moreover, Mme Flaubert is described here to be more a wife than a mother, and it should have been quite a frustrating situation for her children. One can feel it from some of Flaubert’s works that his mother was the most important person in his life. On the other hand, young Gustave already happened to had been in a true ‘existential’ situation when he was forced to be created literally by himself (and not by his mother). After having read this chapter by Sartre, I guess that Emma Bovary would represent two ways how to escape Flaubert’s own family situation: either she is the author himself dreaming about achieving his personal freedom, or she is a reverse model of his mother Mme Flaubert, when dreaming about his mother’s infidelity.

    Wow, took me literally years to push through this dense little publication with many landscapes in its essays. Some I loved, some I couldn't get to the end of a single sentence without re reading. It seemed to start light, reach the concrete of excerpts of Being and nothingness in the middle and taper off to some interesting and thought provoking portraits towards the end. Silly me. Had I realized they were all from the French Publication "Modern Times" it might have helped me put a lot of it in Wow, took me literally years to push through this dense little publication with many landscapes in its essays. Some I loved, some I couldn't get to the end of a single sentence without re reading. It seemed to start light, reach the concrete of excerpts of Being and nothingness in the middle and taper off to some interesting and thought provoking portraits towards the end. Silly me. Had I realized they were all from the French Publication "Modern Times" it might have helped me put a lot of it in perspective. It was a gift, I'm not a Sartre fan and there were times when I thought I would never be but it somehow proved me wrong on that point. Sartre when not wallowing in in philosophical language of symbols displays what you would expect from such a well admired intellectual. He beautifully dissects and psychoanalyses situations and lives in order to throw a light which may never otherwise see the day. And when turned in the mind indeed sit well with logic. His thoughts are pretty amazing, and when you are about to give it all away as pure masturbation, he brings it down to the boys and shares some fun with us as well. I really liked it. But would I read it again? Never. Perhaps might pick it up for the occasional chapter but at least I know now which ones to avoid.

    سارتر پس از جنگ، به همراه تنی چند از فیلسوفان و نویسندگان فرانسوی مجله ای به نام "له تان مدرن" (عصرجدید) منتشر می کردند. بنظر می رسد این کتاب، مجموعه مقالات سارتر در مجله ی "عصر جدید" باشد. از آنجا که این مجله را هرگز ندیده ام، در مورد این ادعا تردید دارم. در مورد ژان پل سارتر، مطلبی جداگانه نوشته ام؛ http://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_... سارتر پس از جنگ، به همراه تنی چند از فیلسوفان و نویسندگان فرانسوی مجله ای به نام "له تان مدرن" (عصرجدید) منتشر می کردند. بنظر می رسد این کتاب، مجموعه مقالات سارتر در مجله ی "عصر جدید" باشد. از آنجا که این مجله را هرگز ندیده ام، در مورد این ادعا تردید دارم. در مورد ژان پل سارتر، مطلبی جداگانه نوشته ام؛ http://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_...

    Sartre has a unique way of expressing himself. I enjoyed reading in particular his essays on his travels and experiences in different cities as well as that on maternal love, though I couldn't follow his arguments on issues and personalities of the literary/artistic scence of the early 20th century because I have no basis of even a cursory knowledge on such matters.
