Paul Z,

Not really.   Rather, (especially since Sartre was listed as one of the
candidates for "The Greatest Philosopher")  it was an excuse for  bringing
to the attention of the list the article by Rebecca Pitt  from _Socialist
Worker_ (UK) on Sartre.  While  I can hardly disagree with the conclusion
of the article ("Sartre's work needs to be read") I was quite surprised by
fact that it was so *uncritical* of Sartre.  I don't really understand why
the SWP (UK) would want to publish such a laudatory, uncritical article
on Sartre now.  Do others know why?

In solidarity, Jerry
