A discussion between A. J. Ayer, Professor of Philosophy in the University of London and Stuart Hampshire, Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford.
Mr. Hampshire thinks that, in spite of its lack of clarity, Sartre's L'Etre et le Neant reaches conclusions interesting to modern empiricists; Professor Ayer has his doubts. They agree that the value of going to a strange metaphysics is that it makes you question your own assumptions.
