During the day, I have two American coffees. I might add some water, but rarely finish it.
Finding a cup of coffee present on my desk throughout the day has become a ritual. In Beirut, I live in Gemmayzeh and my office is in Downtown; in Paris, my apartment and office are in the 16th arrondissement. You can barely find a pathway through the office, with different Stockman mannequins, fabric rolls, embroidery samples, moodboards and sketches all spread around.
We usually work 10 hours a day and more than 15 during shows, which creates a strong bond and family spirit. I only take urgent phone calls, as I bounce from one meeting to another. I love every aspect of my job. It is so intense that I cannot dedicate a moment to certain tasks as I often get interrupted. My team constantly share pictures, drawings and detailed embroideries so I can approve things quickly. I am inspired by everything that will catch my attention; a book, painting, sculpture.
It may sound strange, but the most frightening things might trigger creativity. However, the woman remains my main source of inspiration, as I always aspire to make women look beautiful. I like a woman with character and confidence, regardless of their age, shape or size. The only relaxing moment is during lunch, but I am never alone. Actually, I need company while I eat, usually my co-workers so that we can discuss business-related matters.
I am lucky to be pampered by my mother who sends food to the office, such as kibbeh bi laban. In Paris, my cook, who travels with me, also serves a variety.

I like to start with a crab salad, followed by Lebanese dishes like sayadiyeh or burghul. I crave desserts, such as cheesecake, but I do my best not to be tempted. I am not a diet freak but I try to be healthy, though sometimes I overeat when a temptation is staring me right in the face. I like a woman with character and confidence, regardless of their age, shape or size German model Toni Garrn was revealed as the new face of Elie Saab Le Parfum this week in Paris. Does it sound strange if I tell you that my work is my hobby?
It is seriously the case. I always look for inspiration, check latest trends, think of different gowns. So even if I have a day off, I am working, otherwise the day seems endless and I feel frustrated. I usually leave around 8pm, though before collections not until 2am. I admit I am a workaholic, and being around my team gives me more energy and better productivity. I would feel very guilty throwing out my ideas and leaving them working all night without assistance.
When there are no plans, I go home, do a few phone calls with family and friends, have a light dinner, usually a grilled halloumi sandwich and salad, and briefly watch TV — Fashion TV or a comedy — then straight to bed. I rejoice by the idea of being in bed by 10pm. If I have dinners or a social occasion, I go straight from the office to keep up the energy. I receive lots of invitations but I will only grant a few. As such, they show themselves to be resistant to whatever significance human consciousness might perceive in them. He also took inspiration from phenomenologist epistemology, explained by Franz Adler in this way: Any action implies the judgment that he is right under the circumstances not only for the actor, but also for everybody else in similar circumstances.
This indifference of "things in themselves" closely linked with the later notion of "being-in-itself" in his Being and Nothingness has the effect of highlighting all the more the freedom Roquentin has to perceive and act in the world; everywhere he looks, he finds situations imbued with meanings which bear the stamp of his existence.
Hence the "nausea" referred to in the title of the book; all that he encounters in his everyday life is suffused with a pervasive, even horrible, taste—specifically, his freedom. The book takes the term from Friedrich Nietzsche 's Thus Spoke Zarathustra , where it is used in the context of the often nauseating quality of existence. No matter how much Roquentin longs for something else or something different, he cannot get away from this harrowing evidence of his engagement with the world.
The novel also acts as a terrifying realization of some of Immanuel Kant 's fundamental ideas about freedom; Sartre uses the idea of the autonomy of the will that morality is derived from our ability to choose in reality; the ability to choose being derived from human freedom; embodied in the famous saying "Condemned to be free" as a way to show the world's indifference to the individual. The freedom that Kant exposed is here a strong burden, for the freedom to act towards objects is ultimately useless, and the practical application of Kant's ideas proves to be bitterly rejected.
Also important is Sartre's analysis of psychological concepts, including his suggestion that consciousness exists as something other than itself, and that the conscious awareness of things is not limited to their knowledge: While the broad focus of Sartre's life revolved around the notion of human freedom, he began a sustained intellectual participation in more public matters towards the end of the Second World War, around He attended plays, read novels, and dined [with] women.
And he was published. Sartre portrayed his own pre-war situation in the character Mathieu, chief protagonist in The Age of Reason , which was completed during Sartre's first year as a soldier in the Second World War. By forging Mathieu as an absolute rationalist , analyzing every situation, and functioning entirely on reason, he removed any strands of authentic content from his character and as a result, Mathieu could "recognize no allegiance except to [him]self",  though he realized that without "responsibility for my own existence, it would seem utterly absurd to go on existing".
Mathieu was restrained from action each time because he had no reasons for acting. Sartre then, for these reasons, was not compelled to participate in the Spanish Civil War , and it took the invasion of his own country to motivate him into action and to provide a crystallization of these ideas. It was the war that gave him a purpose beyond himself, and the atrocities of the war can be seen as the turning point in his public stance.
The war opened Sartre's eyes to a political reality he had not yet understood until forced into continual engagement with it: In , after the group disbanded, Sartre joined a writers' Resistance group,  in which he remained an active participant until the end of the war.
He continued to write ferociously, and it was due to this "crucial experience of war and captivity that Sartre began to try to build up a positive moral system and to express it through literature". The symbolic initiation of this new phase in Sartre's work is packaged in the introduction he wrote for a new journal, Les Temps modernes , in October Here he aligned the journal, and thus himself, with the Left and called for writers to express their political commitment.
Sartre's philosophy lent itself to his being a public intellectual. He envisaged culture as a very fluid concept; neither pre-determined, nor definitely finished; instead, in true existential fashion, "culture was always conceived as a process of continual invention and re-invention. He did not dogmatically follow a cause other than the belief in human freedom , preferring to retain a pacifist's objectivity.
It is this overarching theme of freedom that means his work "subverts the bases for distinctions among the disciplines". Sartre systematically refused to keep quiet about what he saw as inequalities and injustices in the world. Following the Liberation the PCF were infuriated by Sartre's philosophy, which appeared to lure young French men and women away from the ideology of communism and into Sartre's own existentialism.
In the late s Sartre supported the Maoists , a movement that rejected the authority of established communist parties. In the aftermath of a war that had for the first time properly engaged Sartre in political matters, he set forth a body of work which "reflected on virtually every important theme of his early thought and began to explore alternative solutions to the problems posed there".
In Sartre's opinion, the "traditional bourgeois literary forms remain innately superior", but there is "a recognition that the new technological 'mass media' forms must be embraced" if Sartre's ethical and political goals as an authentic, committed intellectual are to be achieved: The struggle for Sartre was against the monopolising moguls who were beginning to take over the media and destroy the role of the intellectual. His attempts to reach a public were mediated by these powers, and it was often these powers he had to campaign against.
He was skilled enough, however, to circumvent some of these issues by his interactive approach to the various forms of media, advertising his radio interviews in a newspaper column for example, and vice versa. The role of a public intellectual can lead to the individual placing himself in danger as he engages with disputed topics.
In Sartre's case, this was witnessed in June , when a plastic bomb exploded in the entrance of his apartment building. His public support of Algerian self-determination at the time had led Sartre to become a target of the campaign of terror that mounted as the colonists' position deteriorated.
A similar occurrence took place the next year and he had begun to receive threatening letters from Oran, Algeria. Sartre wrote successfully in a number of literary modes and made major contributions to literary criticism and literary biography. His plays are richly symbolic and serve as a means of conveying his philosophy. The best-known, Huis-clos No Exit , contains the famous line "L'enfer, c'est les autres", usually translated as "Hell is other people.
In this way, Roads to Freedom presents a less theoretical and more practical approach to existentialism.

John Huston got Sartre to script his film Freud: Some philosophers argue that Sartre's thought is contradictory. Specifically, they believe that Sartre makes metaphysical arguments despite his claim that his philosophical views ignore metaphysics. Herbert Marcuse criticized Being and Nothingness for projecting anxiety and meaninglessness onto the nature of existence itself: Existentialism thus becomes part of the very ideology which it attacks, and its radicalism is illusory.
Existentialism says existence precedes essence.

In this statement he is taking existentia and essentia according to their metaphysical meaning, which, from Plato's time on, has said that essentia precedes existentia. Sartre reverses this statement. But the reversal of a metaphysical statement remains a metaphysical statement. The philosophers Richard Wollheim and Thomas Baldwin have argued that Sartre's attempt to show that Sigmund Freud 's theory of the unconscious is mistaken was based on a misinterpretation of Freud. Intellectuals associated with the political right allege that Sartre's politics are indicative of authoritarianism.

Anderson denounced Sartre as an apologist for tyranny and terror and a supporter of Stalinism , Maoism , and Castro's regime in Cuba. Sartre, who stated in his preface to Frantz Fanon 's The Wretched of the Earth that, "To shoot down a European is to kill two birds with one stone, to destroy an oppressor and the man he oppresses at the same time: Walzer suggests that Sartre, a European, was a hypocrite for not volunteering to be killed.
