What does it mean to be alive? Who are we? What is our purpose?

Those weren’t the question the FBI was interested in answering while agents spied on French philosophers John-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus.

Instead, the FBI was concerned about their politics and whether they were a danger to the U.S., the Melville House reports.

Camus raised suspicions because he was a member of the French Communist party. Sartre was involved in Cuban politics and protested the Vietnam war.
