‘All these questions, which refer us to a pure and not a necessary reflection, can find their reply only on the ethical plane.

The ‘ethical question’ continued to preoccupy Sartre, in one form or another, for the rest of his life, and has recently become a renewed focus for critical enquiry on the part of Sartrologues, with the publication in 1991 of L’Espoir maintenant and its subsequent translation into English.
