(from France 24, 8/8.)

A newly discovered letter between philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus, better known for their feud rather than their friendship, reveals they were on talking and socialising terms in the mid 1940s.

Philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus are better known for their feud rather than their friendship. But a newly discovered letter has shed light on their early friendship, before they fell
out over the need for “revolutionary violence”.

The handwritten note was found in an original edition of Sartre’s writings, of which only 60 copies were published, by two booksellers in Orléans.
