The Desire to be God

McLachlan, James Morse: The Desire to be God

Freedom and the Other in Sartre and Berdyaev. Focusing on freedom as the central concern of both philosophers, this study reveals two ironies: Berdyaev's God is a more radical departure from traditional Western theism than Sartre's atheism; and Berdyaev's idea of freedom presents the more radical alternative to that tradition. Sartre argued in Being and Nothingness that God is incompatible with human freedom. Berdyaev argues that God is not only compatible but necessary to freedom. Jean-Paul Sartre and Nicholas Berdyaev were contemporaries in the Paris of the thirties and forties. Sartre became the most famous existentialist author and was also a politically active Marxist. Berdyaev had been a Marxist and political activist but converted to Christianity and became one of the inspirations of the French personalist movement and a key exponent of religious existentialism.
