Project #73130 - Sartre and Crash



1.    Strive for completeness and above all clarity (this presents more difficulty than one might think).

2.    Organize your thoughts as clearly and thoroughly as possible before you start to write.

3.    Avoid vague, ambiguous, or careless expressions.  Write simply.  Do not try to sound profound.  Use simple, straightforward sentences.

4.    Spell correctly

5.    Observe the principles of standard grammar and composition.

6.    Limit yourself to 3-6 pages, double-spaced, 8½ by 11 format, all margins 1 inch.

Please use ‘Left” justify and NOT “Full” (edge to edge) justify for line spacing.

7.   You must use only Font: New Times Roman or Arial, Font Size: 12, NO SMALLER or different.



Answer both sections A and B: (Focus the majority of your attention and responses to a presentation of the details and reasoning in response to section “A” below before your application of these ideas in section “B”.)


A)   Sartre claims that one should act so that one “chooses in the name of freedom.”  Explain the aim and intention of this maxim. Include in your explication, but you should not limit yourself to, an explanation of Sartre’s concept of human Being (one’s essence), all related concepts and the existential aim of one’s choices/actions (to choose in the name of freedom). Explain how Sartre applies this idea of choosing in the name of freedom (instead of choosing in denial of freedom) as a moral criticism of the anti-Semite. Present his step by step argument (critique) of the anti-Semite.


B)   There are several biased (prejudice-based) relationships that are characterized in the movie Crash. Some of these relationships of bias or prejudice open themselves to criticism similar to that used by Sartre in his Portrait of the Anti-Semite.






Select two of the relationships characterized in the movie “Crash” listed below.  Please see me for approval of any alternative choices. Explain how Sartre’s approach to moral criticism of the anti-Semite could be applied to each, given the specific kind of prejudice manifest in the selected relationship(s):


1)    The experience between gun shop owner (Jack McGee), Farhad (Shaun Toub) and his daughter Dori (Bahar Soomekh) when Farhad attempts to buy a gun with his daughter.                                                                                 

2)    Anthony (Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges) and Peter Water’s (Lorenz Tate) reactions to the service they received in a restaurant in Westwood Village (near UCLA).


3)    Jean Cabot (Sandra Bullock) and Anthony (Ludacris) / Peter Waters (Lorenz Tate)

(Her reactions to the two men)


4)    Jean Cabot (Sandra Bullock) and Locksmith Daniel (Michael Pena)


5)    Christine Thayer (Thandie Newton) and Officer Ryan (Matt Dillon)

(Especially after their first encounter-consider prejudices running both directions) 


6)    Fred (producer played by Tony Danza) & Cameron Thayer (Terrence Howard): Re: Fred’s request to reshoot the scene so one character could appear to be more “Black/African American”        


7)    Officer Ryan (Matt Dillon) and Shaniqua Johnson (Loretta Devine) (Medical Insurance)
