existentialism and Simone de Beauvoir

born Jan. 9, 1908, Paris, France
died April 14, 1986, Paris, France

My overflowing leisure handed me the world and at the same time prevented me from seeing it. Just as the sun filtering through the clossed venetian blinds on a hot afternoon, makes the whole magnificence of summer blaze in my mind; whereas if I face its direct harsh glare it blinds me. --Simone de Beauvoir

Simone de Beauvoir, a French essayist and novelist, was a leading feminist and a proponent of existentialism. Her philosophical view closely resembled that of Jean Paul Sartre, a lifelong associate. The existential dilemma is the central theme of her works, but her perspective ranges from the autobiographical to the historical.

Simone Lucie-Ernestine-Marie-Bertrand de Beauvoir (b. Jan. 9, 1908, Paris, France d. April 14, 1986, Paris). French writer and feminist, a member of the intellectual fellowship of philosopher-writers who have given a literary transcription to the themes of Existentialism. She is known primarily for her treatise Le Deuxième Sexe, 2 vol. (1949; The Second Sex), a scholarly and passionate plea for the abolition of what she called the myth of the "eternal feminine." This seminal work became a classic of feminist literature.
