We'll begin with Simone de Beauvoir's assertion, in The Second Sex, of woman as something one becomes (as opposed to something one is born as), then consider Luce Irigaray's interpretation of Beauvoir in an essay entitled "The Question of the Other." Finally, we'll arrive at Judith Butler's critique of Beauvoir in "Sex and Gender in Beauvoir's Second Sex." We'll consider the following three questions:
The Provocations of Existentialism - Part 2 of Our Discussion of Sartre's "Existentialism Is A Humanism"
Existential Angst & How Existence Precedes Essence in Jean-Paul Sartre's "Existentialism Is A Humanism"
But Would That Still Be Me? Anthony Appiah's Thought Experiment On The Meaphysics of Personal Identity
