Existentialism and Humanism (, "Existentialism is a Humanism") is a 1946 philosophical work by Jean-Paul Sartre, based on a lecture called "Existentialism is a Humanism" he gave at Club Maintenant in Paris, on 29 October 1945. "Existentialism and Humanism" was the title used in the United Kingdom; the work was originally published in the United States as Existentialism.
