  1. Sartre supported the Cuban revolution from the first and he went to Cuba in 1960 where he met Castro and Che Guevara.

    The concept of Che Guevara as a “complete human being”, is first a reference to the “complete man” of the Renaissance, a concept that Sartre radically redefines: to him it means that Che Guevara made possible the concept of fraternity and revolutionary solidarity that Sartre had described in Critique of Dialectical Reason. Che Guevara thought and acted: that’s probably how Sartre saw him (as opposed to himself who was a thinker but not an active revolutionary).
