Video starts when Sartre is a school teacher, in his spare time he developed a strong interest in phenomenology, a new branch of philosophy that offered a radical account of the workings of human conscience. In 1933 he went Berlin to study with a leader in that field. When he came back to Paris, the big idea he came back with was to relate to an item in the world rather than a representation of it in your head. Sartre started to write about how we are here by chance, with no purpose in life. This writing was later titled La nause’e. This episode ends when Sartre is working on a political play and his philosophical writings. This video is for high school students, some parts have subtitles.
