  Jean-Paul Sartre [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Sartre's methodology is Husserlian (as demonstrated in his paper "Intentionality: a fundamental ideal of Husserl's phenomenology") insofar as it is a form of intentional and eidetic analysis.
Sartre's account of imagining does away with representations and potentially allows for a direct access to that which is imagined; when this object does not exist, there is still an intention (albeit unsuccessful) to become conscious of it through the imagination.
Sartre's existentialist understanding of what it is to be human can be summarised in his view that the underlying motivation for action is to be found in the nature of consciousness which is a desire for being.

 Jean-Paul Sartre (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Sartre seems to have read the phenomenological ethicist Max Scheler, whose concept of the intuitive grasp of paradigm cases is echoed in Sartre's reference to the "image" of the kind of person one should be that both guides and is fashioned by our moral choices.
Sartre's third attempt at an ethics, which he called an ethics of the "we," was undertaken in interview format with Benny Lévy toward the end of his life.

 Jean-Paul Sartre
In other words, there can be no such "reduction." In his novel Nausea (1938), Sartre made this point in a protracted example: his bored and often nauseated narrator confronts a gnarled chestnut tree in the park and recognizes with a visceral shock that its presence is simply given and utterly irreducible.
Central to the argument of Being and Nothingness and Sartre's insistence on the primacy of human freedom is his insistence that consciousness cannot be understood in causal terms.
Sartre gives us a brutal but familiar everyday example of our experience of being-for-others in what he calls "the look." Someone catches us "in the act" of doing somethig humiliating, and we find ourself defining ourself (probably also resisting that definition) in their terms.

 Existential Primer: Jean-Paul Sartre
Sartre's willingness to avoid the truth was established at a young age, and he continued to lie or omit facts throughout his life.
Sartre's sympathies were always with the left, but after making his philosophical debut as an impassioned advocate of individual freedom, denouncing Marxism as deterministic and Communist party as undemocratic, he aligned himself with Marxism and relegated Existentialism to being a mere "ideology." Marxism, he declared, was the only valid philosophy for our time.
Sartre argues that it is man's basic wish to fuse his openness and freedom with the impermeability of things, to achieve a state of being in which the en-soi and pour-soi are synthesized.

 Cat's Eye Technologies: The Sartre Programming Language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Sartre programmers, perhaps somewhat predictably, tend to be boring and depressed, and are no fun at parties.
The set of orthographs varies from Sartre implementation to Sartre implementation, but is guaranteed to contain all the so-called "letters" from at least one modern language, transliterated to the closest element of the ASCII set and ordered as the bit-reversed EBCDIC value, assuming those bit-patterns were integers, which they probably aren't.
Since Sartre does not allow for unconventional, potentially confusing symbols to be strewn about a program (for example, "17" meant to represent a certain quantity of items), this allows the programmer to define a set of symbolic constants he plans to use.

Sartre gave up teaching after the war and devoted all his time to writing (he declined the '64 Nobel Prize for Literature); he emerged as the leading light of the left-wing, the supporters of which could be found at the Cafe de Flore on the left bank.
To Sartre human life is an "unhappy consciousness," a "useless passion." To this, I am obliged to comment: I believe that one's life is, in itself, a value; and the objective standard for one to follow is that which advances this value.
Outside of Sartre's view that life is an "unhappy consciousness," a "useless passion," much of what Sartre asserts makes sense and counters the dangerous notions of Freud and his ilk.

 Camus and Sartre: The Story of a Friendship and the Quarrel that Ended It   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Sartre's deft handling of this strange and banal subject moves with a "vigor and certainty" reminiscent of Kafka.
Sartre dwells on the repugnant features of humankind "instead of basing his reasons for despair on certain of man's signs of greatness." And the reviewer was also bothered by the "comic" inadequacy of Roquentin's final attempt to find hope in art, considering how "trivial" art is when compared with some of life's redeeming moments.
Sartre continues, in apparent agreement with Camus: "If we are able to refuse the misleading aid of religion or existential philosophies, we then possess certain basic, obvious facts: the world is chaos, a 'divine equivalence born of anarchy'; tomorrow does not exist, since we all die.
