Feminist Interpretations of Jean-Paul Sartre by Julien S. Murphy

Feminist Interpretations of Jean-Paul Sartre

Part of the Re-Reading the Canon Series


Feminist Interpretations of Jean-Paul Sartre by Julien S. Murphy

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.
