Topic: Simone de Beauvoir & Moral Philosophy
Class Number & Section Details
Much has been written about The Second Sex as a contribution to feminist philosophy. But Simone de Beauvoir's ethical works (Pyrrhus and Cineas, The Ethics of Ambiguity), and the ethical theory implicit in her literary works and memoirs (as well as in The Second Sex itself), have been largely ignored by contemporary moral philosophers. The aim of this course is to understand Beauvoir’s contribution to moral philosophy specifically, drawing on (selections from) her entire oeuvre.
