The book crystallized Sartres worldview and artistic vision. Here he presented the first extended examination of the concepts of nothingness and freedom, both of which are derived from the ability of consciousness to imagine objects both as they are and as they are not.
These ideas would drive Sartres existentialism and his entire theory of human freedom, laying the foundation for his masterwork "Being and Nothingness" three years later.
