Existentialism says existence precedes essence. In this statement he is taking existentia and essentia according to their metaphysical meaning, which, from Plato's time on, has said that essentia precedes existentia. Sartre reverses this statement. But the reversal of a metaphysical statement remains a metaphysical statement. With it, he stays with metaphysics, in oblivion of the truth of Being. The philosophers Richard Wollheim and Thomas Baldwin have argued that Sartre's attempt to show that Sigmund Freud 's theory of the unconscious is mistaken was based on a misinterpretation of Freud.
Intellectuals associated with the political right allege that Sartre's politics are indicative of authoritarianism. Brian C. Anderson denounced Sartre as an apologist for tyranny and terror and a supporter of Stalinism , Maoism , and Castro's regime in Cuba. Sartre, who stated in his preface to Frantz Fanon 's The Wretched of the Earth that, "To shoot down a European is to kill two birds with one stone, to destroy an oppressor and the man he oppresses at the same time: there remains a dead man and a free man", has been criticized by Anderson and Michael Walzer for supporting the killing of European civilians by the FLN during the Algerian War.
Walzer suggests that Sartre, a European, was a hypocrite for not volunteering to be killed.

Domingue nor of the Haitians An entire sub-chapter in the Manuel relates the story in which a little girl who had been missing for days was discovered dead- killed as human sacrifice by cult members.
First, on the level of its contents, the emphasis on national unity — while blurring cultural and social divisions and conflicts — aligns the national community behind the ruling class together in one culture and language — French.
The fact that the narrative unfolds on the political scene — where French legal and political institutions are appropriated by the Haitian ruling class — contributes strongly to conferring French character to Haitian national identity. The absence of the African roots of Haitian social organization and culture from the pages of the most widely read Haitian history manual goes unnoticed because the Haitian masses themselves have generally been absent from the formal-public sphere — indeed, from Haitian civic life.
Secondly, on the epistemological level, the historical study of a nation through classical political history lends well to hidden ideology and agendas — which explains why it has been discredited by the social sciences for the past several decades This affirmation is corroborated in the case of the history book examined above.

Bellegarde-Smith 2 , p. Quoted in Hoffmann 1 , p. The Vatician had rejected the Haitian Constitution which stipulated complete separation of Church and State, approved divorce and gave illigimate children the same rights as legal children.

Similar educational policies were implemented for several decades into the 20 th usually in conjunction with the religious teaching orders which were eventually put on the payroll of the Haitian State.
It was evidently for economic reasons that Haitian leaders hired priests and nuns to teach in State schools. William B. Quoted in Hoffmann 2 , p. One of us is soon to tell in all its details the story of the life of Michael Bakunin, but its general features are already sufficiently familiar. Friends and enemies know that this man was great in thought, will, persistent energy; they know also with what lofty contempt he looked down upon wealth, rank, glory, all the wretched ambitions which most human beings are base enough to entertain.
A Russian gentleman related by marriage to the highest nobility of the empire, he was one of the first to enter that intrepid society of rebels who were able to release themselves from traditions, prejudices, race and class interests, and set their own comfort at naught. With them he fought the stern battle of life, aggravated by imprisonment, exile, all the dangers and all the sorrows that men of self-sacrifice have to undergo during their tormented existence.
From the time when the Revolution brought down to the masses its Gospel — not the mystic but the rational, not the heavenly but the earthly, not the divine but the human Gospel, the Gospel of the Rights of Man — ever since it proclaimed that all men are equal, that all men are entitled to liberty and equality, the masses of all European countries, of all the civilized world, awakening gradually from the sleep which had kept them in bondage ever since Christianity drugged them with its opium, began to ask themselves whether they too, had the right to equality, freedom, and humanity.
As soon as this question was posed, the people, guided by their admirable sound sense as well as by their instincts, realized that the first condition of their real emancipation, or of their humanization , was above all a radical change in their economic situation.
The question of daily bread is to them justly the first question, for as it was noted by Aristotle, man, in order to think, in order to feel himself free, in order to become man, must be freed from the material cares of daily life. For that matter, the bourgeois, who are so vociferous in their outcries against the materialism of the people and who preach to the latter the abstinences of idealism, know it very well, for they themselves preach it only by word and not by example.

The second question arising before the people — that of leisure after work — is the indispensable condition of humanity. But bread and leisure can never be obtained apart from a radical transformation of existing society, and that explains why the Revolution, impelled by the implications of its own principles, gave birth to Socialism. The present work is a fulfillment of that intention; but I have slightly altered the title, because on reflection, I felt that Bakunin was here treating of wider and deeper matters than merely the merits of one political philosophy as against another.
