Beauvoir And The Second Sex

Feminism, Race, And The Origins Of Existentialism

Book - 1999
Rate this:
This text attempts to understand Beauvoir's philosophy in The Second Sex. It details the discovery of the origins of Beauvoir's existentialist philosophy in her handwritten diary from 1927 and uncovers evidence of the sexist exclusion of Beauvoir from the philosophical canon. The book also reveals evidence that the African-American writer Richard Wright provided Beauvoir with the theoretical model of oppression that she used in The Second Sex. It explores the influence of The Second Sex in transforming Sartre's philosophy and in laying the theoretical fondations of radical feminism.
