Virtually no aspect of his monumental system has generated more attention. Yet bad faith has been plagued by misinterpretation and misunderstanding. At the same time, Sartres correlative concepts of good faith and authenticity have suffered neglect or insufficient attention, or been confused and wrongly identified by Sartre scholars, even by Sartre himself.

Ronald E. Santoni takes on the challenge of distinguishing these concepts, and of showing whether either or both existential attitudes afford deliverance from the hell of Sartres bad faith. He offers the first fill-scale analysis, reconstruction, and differentiation of these ways of existing as they develop in Sartres early works (1937-1947).Although he attempts to redeem Sartres slighted concept of good faith, Santoni warns that it must not be viewed interchangeably with authenticity.

Further, in one of the earliest and most sustained studies of Sartres Notebooks for an Ethics available in English, Santoni shows how Sartres posthumously published notes for an ethics of Salvation confirm his differentiation and argument. The way out of Sartrean hell, Santoni insists, is authenticity¬óliving with fidelity to our unjustifiable freedom and assuming responsibility for it.
