Early Sartre and its Relation to Marxism
Facticity, apparently, doesn’t apply to existentialists and Marxists – it only applied to everyone else. In fact Marxists don’t believe that existentialists really transcended their own facticity (class, etc.) either. Sartre himself also came to believe that existentialists didn’t truly transcend their facticity.
The Marxist Sartre
It’s fair to say that Sartre-as-Marxist, rather than Sartre-as-existentialist (forget the possible fusion), appears not to be at home anymore. At least you would expect that many postmodernists, and, earlier, many post-structuralists, have been against Sartre’s (Marxist) historical “totalisations” and his Marxist/Hegelian belief in “organic wholes”.They have been.
