The Fly

From an Associated Press box published this morning.

SARTRE REVISITED: The French are taking a fresh look at the 20th century philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre as they mark the 100th anniversary of his birth.

COUNTRY IN CRISIS: Sartre's influence has declined but fans say he is more relevant today than ever as the French question their role in the world after voters rejected the European constitution.

ACTIVIST PHILOSOPHER: Sartre's unapologetic support of controversial left-leaning causes has overshadowed his philosophy of existentialism, which holds that people are born without meaning to their lives and can choose to determine their "essence."

And this was not in the Associated Press box:

"to be is to do" - Aristotle
"to do is to be" - Jean Paul Sartre
"do be do be do" - Frank Sinatra

I prefer Albert Camus to Sartre. Camus had great moral courage.
