Sebastian Gardner is Professor of Philosophy at University College London, where he lectures on Sartre. His previous publications include the Routledge Guidebook on Kant and the Critique of Pure Reason.
"Sebastian Gardner's Reader's Guide to Sartre's Being and Nothingness is precisely what it claims to be: an informed, trustworthy, and well-written "guide" for the study of Sartre's difficult masterpiece. But it is also a sophisticated philosophical analysis of Sartre's intentions, successes, and failures ... This is a book that deserves a place of prominence in the library of every first-time reader of Being and Nothingness and of every scholar with a serious interest in Sartre's philosophy." - Professor Dan Breazeale. University of Kentucky, USA
