Being Like No Other

Simone de Beauvoir: Author and Philosopher

Simone de Beauvoir is regarded as one of the founders of feminism, her book The Second Sex became a cornerstone of the women’s liberation movement. As a committed philosopher and writer and the life-long companion of Jean-Paul Sartre, she had a major influence on intellectual life in the 20th century.

To mark the centenary of her birth, on 9th January 2008, Ingeborg Gleichauf has produced an accessible biography that provides an absorbing and enjoyable read and will appeal to all age groups. The author retraces de Beauvoir’s personal and intellectual development, discusses Sartre’s influence and demonstrates why de Beauvoir’s thought and actions have lost none of their relevance, even to today’s readers. A fascinating portrait of a headstrong and combative character, whose influence extends far beyond the spheres of feminism and existentialism into the world of philosophy and literary history.
