On Marx and the decline of the Roman Empire

Handwritten manuscript fragment in French, unsigned, one page, 8.25 x 10.5, no date. Sartre pens some thoughts on economic philosophy. In part (translated): “One can find in a pinch the movement which precipitated the decline of the Roman world, since this story is dead, but, whatever the contradictions…we can return in advance of capitalist decadence since this story does not take place. But the key is not there: what troubles first is that Marx seems to deprive himself of the same movement.” Sartre crossed out the last two lines regarding Marx. In fine condition, with toning to edges. Much of Sartre’s work addresses Marxism, including his 1957 essay Search for a Method and 1960 book Critique of Dialectical Reason, which developed the idea of Existentialist Marxism. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
