This text examines the nature of the works Sartre compiled about ethics. It explores some of the arguments that are often offered against the role Sartre played in the ethical genre. It seeks to demonstrate that Sartre was a moral philosopher by referencing the works of several scholars in the field. My position in the text is that Sartre was not just a philosopher. He was also a moral philosopher. I argue that Sartre had an undeniable ethical dimension in his philosophy. I point out several works, which could substantiate that claim. I argue that it is necessary to magnify the intellectual relevance of this great thinker in the ethical discipline.
