A Legacy Under Attack. The Sartrean legacy in moral philosophy is under siege. While Jean-Paul Sartre is regarded as a well-accomplished writer in philosophy, novel, playwright, and biography, just to name a few, many are convinced that ethics was not his strongest suit. His approach to morality is often rebuked vociferously.
The Vietnam War was an unfortunate moment in human history. It was, for a fact, a horrific event in Indochina. It was also a tragic event in the history of modern warfare. This war was an unnecessary military venture, which led to an innumerable lost of lives. The text explores the policy rationale that led to the decision to evacuate American embassy personnel from Saigon.
While Jean-Paul Sartre is regarded as a well-accomplished philosopher in other fields, his views about ethics are often rebuked vociferously. I endeavor, passionately of course, to dissect the congruity of Sartre's writings on ethics. I argue that it is quintessential to emphasize the intellectual relevance of this great thinker in the ethical discipline.
