Publisher's Summary

Simone de Beauvoir stands as a towering figure in the 20th century's flowering of thought among women. There are probably more women philosophers alive today than in all of prior history, and their perspective brings new ideas and fresh approaches to old problems. We are just now beginning to understand women's unique contribution to philosophical thought.

The World of Philosophy series is a dramatic presentation, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

Bit of a squeeze but a stalwart attempt

Well read, and well built, bringing other voices makes a complex and dense subject easier to follow, this work actually presents one of the best bit size treatments of existentialism and yet it doesn't ignore the difficulties that existentialism presents to those trying to follow it.
