Simone de Beauvoir and the Politics of Ambiguity

Sonia Kruks

Studies in Feminist Philosophy

  • This is the first monograph/book-length study of Simone de Beauvoir's political philosophy
  • It draws on a range of Beauvoir's writings that are little known to Anglophone readers, in addition to her most famous book, The Second Sex.
  • Kruks demonstrates how Beauvoir's philosophy of ambiguity bears on a range of contemporary political debates and dilemmas.
  • The book treats Beauvoir as an original and free- standing thinker, not as a disciple of Sartre.
