This study explores Sartre's reflections in his posthumously published "Cahiers Pour une Morale". It describes and elucidates the key concepts and ideas that might suggest Sartre's conception of "une morale". In "Notebooks" Sartre offers an analysis, missing in "Being and Nothingness", of how one may reflectively overcome bad faith and live one's life authentically. This work attempts to say systematically what Sartre's ethics is not (or cannot be), given his ontological commitments. It also offers a sustained Sartrean criticism of Kant's moral theory, and in particular it attempts to show why Sartre did not accept Kant's principles on universalizability.
