Product Overview

This collection of new essays treats the historical, philosophical, and literary dimensions of Simone de Beauvoirs thought, and celebrates the 50th anniversary of her most influential book, The Second Sex. A team of distinguished philosophers and literary critics locate her work in the intellectual and political upheavals that marked Paris in the 1930s and 1940s; analyze her philosophical links to 17th century rationalism, and to Kant, Hegel, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Simone Weil, and Heidegger; and study the connections between her philosophical and literary writings. Above all, the collection tackles the relationship between theory and concrete situation with fresh insight and renewed urgency. *Author: Grosholz, Emily R. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 200 *Publication Date: 2006/04/13 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.50 x 5.66 x 0.55 inches
