Place Jean-Paul Sartre in Paris

Jean Paul Sartre (1905-80) was a prominent French thinker, and his writings mean many things to many people of the world. When he died in 1980 his funeral cortege was followed as many as 50,000 young Europeans. However, what does Sartre mean to physicists?

In order to answer this question, let us review the events that took place in France during World War II.

Let us stop the serious talk. The best way to appreciate Jean-Paul Sartre is to spend a few days at the Place Jean-Paul Sartre. I was fortunate enough to stay four nights during the second week of January (2012) at a hotel in that area. I would like to share with you some of the photos I took there.
