Handwritten manuscript fragment in French, unsigned, two lightly gridded pages, 8.25 x 10.5, no date. Sartre pens some thoughts on his existentialist understanding of the political dimension of human existence. In full (translated): “In the problem at hand, the groups differ in their praxis and the kind of integration it requires. Praxis, in turn, is controlled by their common interests and defined by its purpose. But if these interests may give rise to the group, it is precisely insofar as it presents itself as a company; by themselves, they are unable to describe human relationships that are updated during the praxis and within a social organization. This point of view, I do not think it necessary to radically distinguish passive groups and active groups.” Light edge toning, a couple trivial creases, and an edge tear to the lower blank area of the first page, otherwise overall fine condition. Sartre analyzes the praxis in his important Critique of Dialectical Reason. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
