Francois Noudelmann studies Sartre's time(table) and illustrates how he used his body and his mind. Taking as an example Sartre's work on Flaubert, Noudelmann underpins his own study by explaining that Sartre presupposed that everything makes sense in an existence in order to constitute a life, even what seems to lie outside the individual's intentions. This totalising approach articulates two contiguous and complex notions: life and existence, which Noudelmann then applies to Sartre himself, unmasking his secret temporalities, such as playing the piano, in a detotalising manoeuvre which, through its segmentation(s), (re-)composes the tempos of life. In passing, Noudelmann also evokes Sartre's and Beauvoir's seemingly "transparent relationship".
