Ethics of Ambiguity | [Simone de Beauvoir]

Ethics of Ambiguity

In this classic introduction to existentialist thought, French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir’s The Ethics of Ambiguity simultaneously pays homage to and grapples with her French contemporaries, philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, by arguing that the freedoms in existentialism carry with them certain ethical responsibilities. While contemplating Nihilism, Surrealism, Existentialism, Objectivity, and human values, The Ethics of Ambiguity is a thorough examination of existence and what it means to human life.

    "Exceptionally Poor Narration"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator doesn't even try to pronounce world-renown philosophers' names correctly -- in fact, pronouncing them differently in different places. His reading slows to a hesitant crawl frequently, to the extent that it seems clear that the recording took place upon his first reading of the material -- not at all professional, especially for a narrator of an eminent work of philosophy!

    But it gets worse: you can sometimes hear a sneer or baulk in the man's voice where, due to apparent lack of comprehension, he finds the philosophical talk ridiculous!

    I don't want to be ungenerous. I may be mishearing and reading into that which others might hear differently and more truly. But, regardless, I found myself so utterly distracted by Nick Hahn's narration that I simply could not continue the book. My sense of literary professionalism (which is not at all normally very strong -- oh me, I refuse to wear proper slacks into the office!) is so affronted, I really would like a refund in protest.
