A confident understanding of Sartre is essential for students of Continental philosophy. Sartre: A Guide for the Perplexed is an illuminating and comprehensive introduction to the work of this major twentieth-century thinker. It identifies the four key themes that run through Sartre's writings - consciousness, freedom, bad faith and authenticity. It explores each theme in detail, building up a clear and thorough overview of Sartre's philosophy in its entirety. Anyone required to read Sartre will find this thematic account of his work an invaluable companion to study.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Exceptionally clear and incisive ... This book will be hugely helpful to readers of Sartre and will, I believe, prove to be of lasting value.' Nicholas Dent, Professor (Emeritus) of Philosophy, University of Birmingham
"Cox's book is much more than an introduction to Sartre ... Sartre: A Guide for the Perplexed is well worth reading and thinking about. It would be useful in existentialism classes, history of philosophy classes, philosophy of mind, and in Great Books programs which focus on the chronological development of ideas in the Western world."--Sanford Lakoff
"By discussing the limits of [Sartre's] arguments and assessing the criticisms levelled against him, the author maintains a balanced view and does not go along with the tendency of the 1980s and 1990s to dismiss his work as incoherent and insignificant. Equally helpful are the examples from everyday life illustrating particularly difficult ideas, like the use of the pixelated image of an actor on screen to explain intentionality (p.17)."--Sanford Lakoff "Journal Of European Studies "
