Mailer in The Nation

The June 6, 2005 issue of The Nation reprints an essay by Mailer from a French periodical on the theological views of the late French philospher, Jean-Paul Sarte: “On Satre’s God Problem.” Adam Shatz introduces the essay:

This year marks the centenary of the birth of Jean-Paul Sartre, the great philosopher of existentialism and a definitive model of the intellectual engagé. The Paris-based daily Libération asked a group of writers to comment on the philosopher’s legacy. Norman Mailer was among the contributors.
