Jean-Paul Sartre's Existentialism is a Humanism is a treatise on the ideas of existentialism. Sartre, who is a philosopher who has given the most comprehensive account of existentialism, is also its spokesperson.
In this short piece of work, Sartre writes about why the existentialist conception of life, which basically renounces all of a possible metaphysical afterlife, is fraught with so much urgency. The famous phrase, "Existence precedes essence.", is its key phrase.
