Simone De Beauvoir's Ethics and Postmodern Ambiguity: The Assertion of Freedom in the Face of the Absurd.
Slattery, Patrick; Morris, Marla
Educational Theory, v49 n1 p21-36 Win 1999
Despite de Beauvoir's language of bifurcations in her writings, she actually initiates a process of deconstructing Cartesian distinctions between the individual and society, past and present, present and future, means and ends, and ethics and freedom. The paper reconceptualizes her book, "The Ethics of Ambiguity," proposing a movement toward revisioning freedom and ambiguity in discussing ethics in contemporary education. (SM)
