Existentialism Is a Humanism was originally delivered as a talk which Sartre gave at the Club Maintenant in Paris, on 29 October 1945. Though a highly influential and fountational text of Existentialist thought, it was widely criticized by philosophers, including Sartre himself, who later rejected some of the views he expressed in it. The first English translation was published in 1948 by Philip Mairet.
