Simone de Beauvoir and the Algerian War: Toward a Post-Colonial Ethics [Book Chapter]
Chapter from Feminist Interpretations of Jean-Paul Sartre, edited by Julien S. Murphy.
More about this title:
While Sartre was committed to liberation struggles around the globe, his writing never directly addressed the oppression of women. Yet there is compatibility between his central ideas and feminist beliefs. In this first feminist collection on Sartre, philosophers reassess the merits of Sartre's radical philosophy of freedom for feminist theory.
