crappy, elements of Sartre's philosophy was flawed like elements of Daniel Defoe's novels were flawed. However, just like Daniel Defoe is considered one of the great-grandfather's of the novel (amongst other things), I consider Sartre to be one of the great-grandfathers of existentialism (I realize Sartre had precursors, I'm not saying he existed in an intellectual vacuum). Existentialism is to my mind a philosophy of reason and reason is an axiomatic process which continually evolves as new data is accrued.

We can be certain of existence, but less sure of essence. The problem facing Sartre and his confrères is that axiomatic reason forms only a small part of the reality they sought to explain. "Life doesn't exist inside language: too bad for me." -Kathy Acker
