Of course if you can summarize 800 pages by a brilliant philosopher
without reading it, one can only note that in speechless awe.

800 pages of existential philosophy written by Satre's girlfriend. As
tempting as that sounds, I don't believe I have the time. Besides, I know
pretty much what she says. Human beings are free; our choices are own;
good acts makes us freer; bad ones don't. Women are oppressed and
learn to think for themselves and be free. The elderly are treated
terrible. There is no god. There is no heaven, so I won't see you again,
my dear Jean-Paul, but it was great the time we had together even if I did
sleep with every man who came into our house. Adieu, cher Jean-Paul.
