compare ideas and conflictive occasions that seem within the versions utilized by the artists.

But in this sense the milieu cannot explain anything on its own. Nonetheless the milieu deserves a certain amount of attention if one is attempting to ascertain the artist's degree of consciousness and freedom. But Sartre does not simply ask what became of the artists and their lives. The decisive questions reads: what did they make of their origins?

A human being is completely determined by the circumstances he is part of and by his epoch, reproducing these as something unique. This means that every prediction becomes shaky. 9 His concept of the universal singular is based on a dialectical approach. But he does not accept dialectics unconditionally. The artist portraits are for Sartre a further opportunity to test dialectics' applicability in practice. Dialectics offers him a framework of ideas, though without becoming one of the main methodological components in the artist portraits.
