    Verbose yet profound, I went through a myriad of emotions while reading this book. To find out how Sartre made me reconsider everything from my friendships to my relationship with truth, read a full-length essay on my blog. ...

    Every ten or so pages I had to stop and do "The Chicken Dance", U know, where U flap your arms like a silly chicken at Oktoberfest and then shimmy on down! If U want to play a fun drinking game with the book have a drink every time ol' Jean-Paul uses the word "conscious" 'cuz he is ...

    "Being and Nothingness" is the principle existential text of philosophy written by Jean-Paul Sartre'. It seems to serve more as a phenomenological extension of Martin Heidegger's text on Ontology (Being and Time) rather than the common belief that it is a profound misunderstanding of H...

    In Sartre?s Being and Nothingness, he promotes the existentialist outlook that existence precedes essence. It?s a view that opposes the Aristotelian quest for the meaning of something by asking after its function, and defining its virtue based on how well it performs that function....

    Do you like to read words? This book has alot. Maybe Sartre and I have a connection beyond the limits of consciousness. This took me a very long time to digest. What a book! ...

    It goes without saying that Being and Nothingness is a quintessential book in regards to studying existentialism. Nevertheless one must keep in mind that Sartre is the only philosopher to have claimed to be an ?existentialist.? Existentialism is not a system, and it is not going to...

    Okay...wow. Seriously? Over 600 pages to describe the phenomenology of "being" and "nothingness" (okay, I know he covers other concepts)? What Sartre should have done, in my opinion, is publish the book with only one empty page in it - this would have probably gotten his point across. ...

    It was my goal to read this (en francais) last year...then before I started grad school...and now I think I'm putting it in the "finish some time in my life" category. Weighty stuff. Not to mention a lot of ridiculous language to wade through. I had trouble with the companion reader as...

    Well, really, Being and Nothingness is a literary tract disguised as philosophy. The many metaphors he uses to illustrate his points are not philosophical in nature, but imagistic and suggestive. There is a certain wholeness to the book, but it reminds me more of Ulysses than Heidegger...

    I honestly believe that not even Sartre could explain some of these passages. In other words, I think they are pure nonsense. But he has written a complete philosophical system, such as it is, and that is worthy of reading. Just keep in mind the extreme difficulty. I would recommend re...

    The only time I ever passed out in my life was during the reading of this book. I actually felt and heard my brain pop and awoke on the floor next to the couch. This is an extremely difficult text. I recall spending an entire week on just one paragraph. I still do not fully understa...

    I want to make clear that my rating only expresses my enjoyment of the book and not my respect for the impact it had on Western Thought. ...

    One of the most sufficient book of 20th. century. One can not think about 20th. century without naming Sartre. He had influence on very many social concepts and institutions such as human rights and freedom. His ideas changed human life in many aspects. ?? ??? ??? ??????...

    Verbose yet profound, I went through a myriad of emotions while reading this book. To find out how Sartre made me reconsider everything from my friendships to my relationship with truth, read a full-length essay on my blog. ...

    Every ten or so pages I had to stop and do "The Chicken Dance", U know, where U flap your arms like a silly chicken at Oktoberfest and then shimmy on down! If U want to play a fun drinking game with the book have a drink every time ol' Jean-Paul uses the word "conscious" 'cuz he is ...

    "Being and Nothingness" is the principle existential text of philosophy written by Jean-Paul Sartre'. It seems to serve more as a phenomenological extension of Martin Heidegger's text on Ontology (Being and Time) rather than the common belief that it is a profound misunderstanding of H...

    In Sartre?s Being and Nothingness, he promotes the existentialist outlook that existence precedes essence. It?s a view that opposes the Aristotelian quest for the meaning of something by asking after its function, and defining its virtue based on how well it performs that function....

    Do you like to read words? This book has alot. Maybe Sartre and I have a connection beyond the limits of consciousness. This took me a very long time to digest. What a book! ...

    It goes without saying that Being and Nothingness is a quintessential book in regards to studying existentialism. Nevertheless one must keep in mind that Sartre is the only philosopher to have claimed to be an ?existentialist.? Existentialism is not a system, and it is not going to...

    Okay...wow. Seriously? Over 600 pages to describe the phenomenology of "being" and "nothingness" (okay, I know he covers other concepts)? What Sartre should have done, in my opinion, is publish the book with only one empty page in it - this would have probably gotten his point across. ...

    It was my goal to read this (en francais) last year...then before I started grad school...and now I think I'm putting it in the "finish some time in my life" category. Weighty stuff. Not to mention a lot of ridiculous language to wade through. I had trouble with the companion reader as...
