"The Second Sex" as a Classic: A Rhetorical Criticism.
Waln, Virginia
The rhetorical technique of Simone de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex" is discussed and analyzed as one source of its impact on the women's movement. De Beauvoir's existentialist philosophy is seen as the most significant factor both in her perception of the world and in the rhetorical style adopted in the book. This includes both a phenomenological approach emphasizing empirical description and a dialogical style which will continue to communicate its message for years to come. (AA)
