“If literature isn’t everything, it’s not worth a single hour of someone’s trouble.” —Sartre
The famous 20th-century philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre was a French Existentialist, which means you will be instantly cooler once you start throwing his name around. Sartre is the most recent of our philosophers—the only one born in the 20th century. As a result, his beliefs still enjoy relatively fresh popularity in today’s classrooms and coffee shops.
