This content downloaded from His polyvalent genius is most centrally manifested in this system, and I have therefore made it central in this book, which attempts its synoptic and sympa- thetic reconstruction. For Danto, the Sartrian system is embodied in L'Etre et le Neant, and his study deals mostly with this major essay of Sartre. However, the first chapter contains a fairly detailed analysis of the ecstatic experience of Roquentin in La Nausee; and some passages are devoted to Qu'est-ce que la Litterature?

There are also brief allusions to other works, in particular Huis Clos. In his analysis, Danto adopts Sartre's own terms. But, wherever this is possible, he also translates the questions into a style more congenial to most American and British philosophers:. My aim in this book is ecumenical as well as expository and critical.

The ideologized division of philosophers into analysts on one side and existen- tialists or phenomenologists on the other is silly and destructive. For we are all doing the same thing, pursuing all the same structures, whether the ostensible topic of our investigation is language or consciousness pp.

Danto acknowledges that the pseudo-definition: "Men are what they are not and are not what they are" is a "rather infuriating formula" p. And it may be agreed that Sartre could have said the things he had to say in a less dazzling, but also less sophistic, manner, had he exorcized the ghosts of Hegel and Heidegger. But Danto goes further.

He believes that "the whole high-flown apparatus of nothingness in Sartre's thought is merely a device for speaking of the distance between sign and object" p. Can sign be identified with consciousness? I think this is possible to the extent that what signifies is reduced to the signifying function. And one might say that the goal of consciousness is to dissolve being into meaning and achieve a sym- bolic appropriation of the signified, through an identification with the.

At least some passages of L'Etre et le NMant would point in this direction. But this is an ideal. What signifies cannot be reduced to signifying and to that extent there is consciousness of that which signifies as meaning- less, gratuitous being. Danto's comments generally simplify L'Etre et le NMant without distor- tion, and his "translations" are often illuminating. He takes care to distin- guish the conceptual value of a term, for instance "anguish", from its literary exploitation.

His general attitude is one of sympathy and admiration in the preface, he acknowledges a professional debt to Sartre. But he also makes critical remarks. For instance, he notes that Sartre always uses the terms "to be human" and "to be a consciousness" interchangeably, "as though dogs did not have consciousness or did not engage with their doggy universes" p. As a matter of fact, in the perspective of L'Etre et le NMant, there are only human beings and things: animals do not exist.

Danto dwells on the distinction between prereflective and reflective consciousness. He suggests that this distinction is all that is required for the possibility of an unconscious p.

Danto's analysis of the distinction between the two types of consciousness also leads him, on p. One can be self-deceived under the form of bad faith only if one knows already that one is free. But one may not know this, not even if it is the truth and not even if one in fact is prereflectively aware that one is.

There is no philosophical difficulty in analyzing those cases in which there is a conflict between prereflective and reflective consciousness, because in the end they involve no self-deception. Roquentin's decision to write a novel is characterized by Danto as "a bid for redemption from inauthenticity" p. The idea of redemp- tion is more apposite, since Roquentin speaks of being "saved.

Roquentin simply hopes to be able to accept himself "in the past, only in the past. And, in L'Etre et le NMant, man cannot avoid temporalizing himself. A tran- scendental experience like that of Roquentin, in which time is said to have stopped, would thus appear to become impossible. It is surprising that Danto makes no critical comments on the distinction between prose and poetry in Qu'est-ce que la Litterature?

Can we take seriously a genre theory which, under the same label of prose, is supposed to cover scientific writings as well as philosophical essays, dramatic and narrative fiction as well as history? And does not the treatment of temporality show the insufficiency, or point- lessness, of the ontological vocabulary "being" and "nothingness" when man is said to be and not to be his future and his past? Not-yet and no-longer cannot be derived from an intemporal negation. Nothingness cannot gen- erate temporality.

L'Idiotde laFamille is said to be a four-volume study of Flaubert p. The date of Saint Genet Comelien etMartyr should be , not p. It is a pity, by the way, that Danto did not comment on this essay. Philosophically, it is at least as important as La Nauske, and it is linked to L'Etre et le Neant in an interesting way, developing the question of values.

Arthur Coleman Danto

A central theme of this book is that the main problems of philosophy and certainly the main traditional problems in the theory of knowledge, concern the space between language and the world. Professor Danto distinguishes between descriptive concepts, concerned with saying how the world is and semantic concepts, which have to do with the application of descriptions of the world. Failure to make these distinctions is responsible for a class of seemingly irresolvable disputes over the foundations of knowledge; but when the distinction is appreciated, a plausible philosophical theory of what it is to know the world can be framed which is free from the standard scepticisms. The crusade which conquered Mediterranean Spain in the thirteenth century resulted in the domination by an alien Christian minority of a dissident Muslim majority and an unusually large Jewish population. Professor Burns' research into previously untapped archival sources reveals the tensions and interaction between the three religious societies after the crusade.

However, the lack of a systematic development which could support this thesis made him face harsh criticism. However, strong foundations for his statements can be deduced from his writings. Nevertheless it is also considered the least understood. The principal difficulty in its analysis is that Danto did not present it in a single work, rather he developed it in different works over the course of twenty years, from his first article dedicated to it, The End of Art , to his final book published the same year as his death, What Art is
