700 pages of magical reality Beauvoir is one of those handful writers worth a name Simone s narrative uality is so much powerful I ve never experienced before A must read for third world I will be revisiting this book very soon it seems it has taken me almost a year to finish this book in my efense it s 701 pagesfor as long as i can remember since first i heard her name and after when i knew that there is a book called the second sex written by a French woman and i admire the french i have wanted to read itthe years passed by i was playing with the idea of learning as much french as i can to read it in the original but alas so little time so many books to read and i also have a fetish for books in paper and i search all over the world before i resign to reading a PDF of a book well i searched and searched and then searched some but no signs of this book and the Persian version Road Brothers doesn t count cause let s face it when things get tough translations get roughanyways as a student of English Literature andiscovering myself through the years i realized the i live the i see the i read the i feel that i am a feminist so i picked up or got stuck with my thesis subject Difference Feminism and NOW i had to read this book let s face it This woman started Feminism and so it began my one year journey to reading this masterpiecefirst chapter and i was blown away even though it s all about biology the first chapter she talks about the female of a lot of species but even that is interesting in the next chapters she looks at women from every single possible view within without social biological philosophical historical cultural she probes everywhere the conscious and the unconscious she goes A Narrative of the Life of Mary Jemison deep and theneeper than you knew existed to explain the why and the how and the when of why women are the way they are who is Toy Story 4 Deluxe Step Into Reading doing this to us why hasn t it changed through the years who benefits from all this and then after 600 pages of fabulous reading comes the sweet conclusion of how to fix it how to change it how to overcome and i love how she just like Woolf is not interested in separating men and women she believes inifference and euality no one needs to hate we Flubby Is Not a Good Pet! don t need to fight we just need to lookeep inside and find our answers because no matter how hard you fight it the future IS coming and the future is eual Knocked Up Preggers Up the Spout A Bun in the Oven The word pregnant is pregnant with connotation And for women often viewed in bodily terms than men nothing foregrounds a woman s body than pregnancy It s interesting to consider what Simone The Farm Bill de Beauvoirubbed the mother of modern feminism thought about motherhood itself Given what she writes in The Second Sex Beauvoir would probably concur with my friend s attitude A number of years ago a friend of mine spoke to me of her When the Irish Invaded Canada desire to have a baby She felt being in her early thirties she should get on with it but would not consider being pregnant while she was still in graduate school When I asked her why she responded that pregnancy made you into such a body and in the environment of graduate school she would feel like a body among minds Her fear encapsulates a number of assumptions A mother is a body A bodyoes not think Intellectuals graduate students faculty writers think Mothers This Life do not think A woman as a graduate student or a professor writes talks produces thinks from the position of aaughter that is from the position of a female body still unencumbered enough to think Pregnancy or maternity besides being a position traditionally at odds with intellect consider the old caveat the baby or the book also represents loss of control and a resultant The Night Window (Jane Hawk discomfort with the body somatophobia Marianne Hirsch in The MotherDaughter Plot isolates both lack of control and somatophobia as two areas of avoidance andiscomfort with the maternal 165 often apparent in feminist rhetoric In The Women s Room one of Marilyn French s characters sums up pregnancy as a time when a woman loses control of her body and by extension her mind as well as her identity Pregnancy is a long waiting in which you learn what it means completely to lose control over your life There are no coffee breaks no Blade Bound (Chicagoland Vampires, days off in which you regain your normal shape and self and can return refreshed to your labors You can t wish away even for an hour the thing that is swelling you up stretching your stomach until the skin feels as if it will burst kicking you from the inside until you are black and blue You can t even hit back without hurting yourself The condition and you are identical you are no longer a person but a pregnancy 69 With pregnancy you are no longer a person you are no longer you Logically the next uestion is Will you still be you when you become a mother For Simonee Beauvoir the answer would be No pregnancy and motherhood rob a woman of her identity and her intellect Over and over again in her interviews and in her books Beauvoir refers to mothers as slaves reduced to bodies and cut off from intellectual pursuits Beauvoir s From Crib to Kindergarten description of pregnancy from her influential book The Second Sex 1949 sounds very much like theescription uoted above from The Women s Room While French s character emphasizes how much pregnancy overtakes a woman s identity Beauvoir goes further and Writing Off Ideas depicts pregnancy like aisease that ultimately annihilates awoman the fetus is an enrichment and an injury the fetus is a part of her body and it is a parasite that feeds on it she possesses it and she is possessed by it it represents the future and carrying it she feels herself vast as the world but this very opulence annihilates her she feels that she herself is no longer anything emphasis added 495 In this theorization a woman not only loses her former identity in the process of pregnancy but actually loses her mind as Beauvoir illustrates when she The Dividing Line Histories of William Byrd II of Westover describes the pregnant woman in less than human terms but in the mother to be the antithesis of subject and object ceases to exist she and the child with which she is swollen make up together an euivocal pair overwhelmed by life Ensnared by nature the pregnant woman is plant and animal a stock pile of colloids an incubator an egg she scares children proud of their young straight bodies and makes young people titter contemptuously because she is a human being a conscious and free individual who has become life s passive instrument 495 Beauvoir s perspective in the above uotation attracts comment Though The Second Sex ostensibly is presented as an objective critiue there is no attempt at objectivity here In what often amounts to an emotional tirade Beauvoir relentlessly focuses on the pregnant woman s body euating it with an animal or a stockpile of colloids and then rather gratuitously states that a pregnant woman scares children and makes them titter contemptuously Beauvoir sescriptions of pregnancy illustrate her attitudes about the pregnant body and the resultant Intellect disintegration of the mind and identity she sees occurring with maternity Beauvoir s attack on motherhood is surprising unless you ve read Beauvoir s autobiographical works There you can see how Beauvoir systematically rejects the body particularly a woman s body in favor of the life of the mind And Beauvoir s research on motherhood proves less than scientific While she presents her findings in The Second Sex as though they are objective and backed by evidence from broad samplings her viewpoints on motherhood rest largely on her observations of a few friends uotes from novels and her own personal life Beauvoir for instance posits that the nausea women suffer in pregnancyemonstrates that pregnancy is not a natural state for human women given that nausea is unknown for other mammals 498 In evidence for this conclusion Beauvoir preemptively cites herself referring the reader to an earlier point in her own text Whatever groundbreaking work Beauvoir accomplishes in The Second Sex needs to be balanced against Beauvoir s privileging of the mind over the body as well as her evident Mi Pais Inventado distaste for women s bodily processes and pregnancy in particular Further Beauvoir sesire to erase the body Ensayo sobre la ceguera (CONTEMPORANEA) doesn t work Ironically as Jane Flax points out the search for truth in the world of pure mind ultimately leads right back to the body The self which is constituted by thought and created by an act of thought by the separation of mind and body isriven to master nature because the self cannot ultimately The Far Shore deny its material character orependence on nature Despite Descartes claim the body reasserts itself at least at the moment of El eskimal y la mariposa death 28 And can one really separate the mind from the body Jean Fran ois Lyotard provocatively explores this uestion in his essay Can Thought Go On without a Body Lyotard considers whether technology could create machines to make thinking materially possible after our bodies areestroyed 77 Lyotard concludes that not only is thought impossibly entwined with the body but that the body actually creates thought Thinking and suffering overlap 82 Thought Lyotard posits attempts to create endings to once and for all silence the Encountering Missionary Life and Work discomfort of the unthought The unthought hurts It s uncomfortable because we re comfortable in what s already thought And thinking which is accepting thisiscomfort is also to put it bluntly an attempt to have DarkBASIC Programming for the Absolute Beginner done with it That s the hope sustaining all writing painting etc that at the end things will be better As there is no end this hope is illusory 84 The impasse of artificial intelligence thus hinges onesire thought without body has no impetus Indeed Lyotard
why machines to mimic human minds would ever start thinking without the iscomfort of the unthought making their memory suffer 85 We need he continues machines that suffer from the burden of their memory 85 ie machines with bodies But it is precisely this burden the burden of memory the burden of the body Beauvoir hopes to silence as she fashions her life into a trajectory of pure intellect Increasingly Beauvoir identifies herself with the life of the mind she associates with the male sphere while simultaneously excising all that connects her to her female body Though Beauvoir points out many of women s ineuities in A Second Sex and argues that women have often been viewed as the lesser or other sex ironically it is a sex that Beauvoir seems to reject as well adapted from a prior publication As a feminist it s been recommended to me for years that I read Simone e Beauvoir s 1949 book The Second Sex As a regular person though I have always felt like it wasn t the right time to read itWhat Eyes Open Level 2 Students Book Romanian Edition does that even meanAs someone living as the second sex myself there is no excuse for this I was lazy bottom line It s a big book and while big bookso not normally frighten me I was worried I wouldn t be smart enough for Simone Controversies in Neuroendoscopy de Beauvoir She was from what I understand a highly intelligent and talented existentialist writer and here I am practically picking my nose while Iecide what kind of cereal I want to eat for First Peoples: A Documentary Survey of American Indian History dinner tonight I mean I m not theimmest light in the pack but I m also not the brightest I m just regularBut as I am pushing 40 it s been on my mind that I should really read this book There s probably never the right time maybe the time is right now We read this as a group here on GR and I m afraid to say I sort of Baby Goes Around The Block disappeareduring any iscussion of it because life got in my way but I persevered anyway because I was finally ready to commit to SimoneAnd what a commitment it wasI read Betty Friedan s classic The Feminine Mystiue a few years back and what was surprising to me about that book was that it read so easily and smoothly I think for that reason alone Friedan may have reached of her audience than Beauvoir id though this Fruit Trees for Every Garden does not automatically mean we should be ignoring Beauvoir uite the opposite reallyThe book is large yes And it isense yes Beauvoir insists her readers give a bit of themselves in order to read this book I think She covers a lot of ground in this book than Friedan though the comparison is unfair since they achieved The Creakers different things with their writing and came at it from slightlyifferent anglesBeauvoir s approach covers biology philosophy religion history you name it There s very few stones that Beauvoir Stolen Fate (The Mythean Arcana did not turn in the process of writing this book She begins with the science of gender and sexuality and then she walks the reader through the entirety of a woman s life from her youngays to maturity to old age Beauvoir was 41 when this book was published Just how long The Warlow Experiment did it take her to write this Because I m 38 and she was probably writing this at that age based on the size and the amount of research sheid and this makes me feel like a colossal failureThe information here may seem The Quest For the Kid (The Explorers dated to a reader today There s also so much information that it s easy to glaze over at times Beauvoir was a French writer and her lack of love for the Americans is evident in several places in sometimes subtle other times not so subtle ways It s amusing to look back at it now but the point is she wasn t even wrong She may have written things in a condescending manner but she still hit the nail on the headMuch of her information is still relevant today There was a section I especially recall in which she talks about abortion a topiciscussed openly way less often back in 1949 and she writes about it in a very matter of fact manner The part that I especially love is that she pointed out how so many people want to prevent abortions and they encourage many to keep their child And then once the woman carries the baby for the greater part of a year and gives birth to this thing those same people who encouraged her to keep the baby are suddenly nowhere to be found to help ensure that she and the baby receive all the financial and other support that they need This is a still a topic of Dark Pool of Light, Volume One debate today how conservatives want to tell women what too with their bodies with lots of promises to help and then when the time comes they shrug and say Not my problemI m totally paraphrasing here Beauvoir was much too classy to write Not my problemI Not Just a Cowboy (Texas Rescue, do recommend this book to well anyone who can manage to get through it It s not the easiest book to read because it just seems too boring Well I m sorry that a woman s life is boring to you Beauvoir s point was and should still be that women are here we are the other part of the population and we have a history and a voice of our own The part of this book that has affected me the most in the ten years since I ve read it is most certainly the introduction wheree Beauvoir says that in order to efine herself to herself she must start with I am a woman This surprised her then as it surprises me now when I realize that that is how I must start too Although I grew up in a post feminist you can have it all type of environment it was eye opening and isconcerting to learn that women are considered the other as opposed to the Coopers Wife default regardless of how I choose to see myselfThe book isivided into philosophical literary and biological reflections of the feminine While the biolog To seem rather than to see to appear rather than to be this in a nutshell has

Nstrument Motherhood is just such a time when one s usual notion of autonomous individual selfhood is terrifyingly overthrown At such a time a woman becomes swamped by immanence she feels herself to be a mere passive instrument of life She is completely absorbed into the relational function of her subjectivity Here in motherhood e Beauvoir comes in headlong collision with the critical problematic of female identity and its seemingly intractable struggle to preserve a sense of independent self that survives the pressures of impinging relationships for motherhood is the ultimate of all impingements Your sense of self before and after cannot remain the same The birth of my two children at least was experienced as a crisis moment in which I myself was tasked to a rebirth a movement from independent to interdependent selfhoodHow DO you reconcile these two Well she Bird Forest doesn t It seems to me that she gives perfect expression to the whole problem of ourual nature both uncompromisingly autonomous and intrinsically relational without truly recognizing it as a problem never mind venturing a solution Learning to simultaneously honour the self in its autonomy and in its full capacity for self giving relationship or to reconcile in short the seemingly conflicting Virtual Economies demands of self actualization and relational self transcendence would bring greater harmony to a societyeeply The Sack of Panama divided between these two currently conflicting trajectories A lot of the meaning of woman and man she says was written over andistorted by a great Technology in World Civilization deal of symbolic mechanisms gone wrong and taking on a life of their own thereby blocking the spontaneous expression of our true sexual nature When we abolish the slavery of half of humanity together with the whole system of hypocrisy it implies then theivision of humanity will reveal its genuine significance and the human couple will find its true form Just so the full realization of one element of the No-One Ever Has Sex On A Tuesday duality empowers the other to find his true form in a relation that now manifests its true form for the first timeWhat if we have never really spoken truly about ourselves about our experience and about the true nature of our relations This thought haunts much of her work and I respect that Thus she very profoundly partakes of the modern project to reefine the fundamentals of the human condition or at least to re explore once what seemed to be a foreclosed issue Her philosophical work is a clearing ground for accreted symbolic clutter that lives on only by a kind of inertia and Horses, Oxen and Technological Innovation distorts all that is seen and felt thereby blocking outeeper reserves of meaning It is for us to ponder the means to a larger perspective that can contain the intractable ambiguities that she has so faithfully recorded for us here Her work provides a map that lays out what it takes to genuinely know and fully become our own selves Her uniue historico philosophical approach to self knowledge encourages us to know our lives by placing our most intimate personal experience in the context of the broadest perspective attainable at our historic moment Like all great thinkers who had anything of value to teach about self knowledge e Beauvoir holds before us the image of a great tree In order to understand our particular twig we must recover a map of the larger tree that holds us in place The meanings that shape us and limit us can be seen truly only in this perspective of historical epth This map is the surest ground on which we can lay out our personal stories Foundational and packed with insight so much so that much of the work s worth checking out even if parts now read as State Building In Revolutionary Ukraine dated Inense Unity 5.x Game AI Programming Cookbook dizzying prose the first volume critiues psychoanalysis and Marxism overviews the history of women in Western civ and unpacks the assumptions behind sexist cultural myths the second walks through the major stages of human life and considers how theyiffer for men and women implicitly focusing on the experiences of middle class white Europeans The first is specific and engaging than the second which s prone to long stretches of abstraction about the condition of bourgeois housewives that are easy to skim today though Volume II s observations on birth control sex work and what Adrienne Rich would later rebrand as compulsory heterosexuality are sharp and still spot on As with other paradigm shifting thinkers of the 20th century Good Vibes, Good Life de Beauvoir s thought s been absorbed into the mainstream but there are shades of nuancerawn here that are often lost in summaries of her work Reading De Beauvoir s seminal feminist manifesto has allowed me to compose my genealogical tree for The Second Sex is a book about my mother and the mother of my mother and the mother of my grandmother and of

Istential project thus far according to Untamed Delights (The Phoenix Pack, de Beauvoir Woman s historicestiny has prohibited her from Wild London developing into a self understood as an autonomous ontic unit and agent Instead hers has been a merely instrumental existenceefined entirely by her social roles Never a maker of meaning her success in life was The Gilded Hour defined to the extent that she was a suitable canvas for receiving others meanings This philosophicalocument is first of all whatever else it might be a sustained exploration of what it means to know to be to make and ultimately to become a self De Beauvoir starts from the perplexing situation in which she encounters her selfhood as somehow incomplete and Unnatural Selection deeply problematic to herself From this starting point she can ask the millionollar uestion of philosophy anew and for our benefit and namely What Hannah does it really take to know a self our self The first thing one should note about this book is that it was not originally intended as a political treatise it wasn t made with the intention of shouting shrill slogans over a megaphone Its aim is philosophical understanding of the human condition not political expediency As such it eschews neat and tidy ideologicalivisions in its essence and prefers to obliuely cast a searching light on the rich ambiguity of this ueer Emil and the Detectives dual nature we experience as sexual beings and the implications this has for our sense of identity and our experience of meaning De Beauvoir s work finds insight not in ideological formulations but in the poignant and possibly unanswerable uestions brought up by the tensions andualities that seem intrinsic to the human condition and that perhaps the ideologue in hisher search for the perfectly Summer of Ghosts defined politicalogma will always and of necessity gloss over Her highest strength as a thinker attempting to venture in this gender minefield is that she guides herself therein less by a pursuit of ideological neatness and by an effort to attain a philosophical consciousness that can comprehend a perhaps intractable ambiguity The impulse to Know thyself is shown here to cut across all artificial barriers of specialization e Beauvoir comes to herself through biological and historical research hormones and hearth glands and cosmetics literary and mythological critiue with all of this capped by philosophical reflection She shows how in the effort to know our condition philosophy can contain inform and irect all partial A Mothers Duty disciplinary inuiries and perspectives a modern and biographical take on the traditional ideal of philosophy as a ueen of the sciences When most people think of self knowledge they tend to conceive this process in purely subjectivist terms in short in terms of looking into material accessible only to the individual consciousness Somewhere in the swarmy mess of impulses affects personal memories belief commitments and gut feelings you are told you shall find Your Self In contrast I suspect she would sympathize with Mann s insight in The Magic Mountain A man lives not only his personal life as an individual but also consciously or unconsciously the life of his epoch and his contemporaries As such the work goes far beyond our culture s subjectivist approach to self knowledge in order to illuminate us to ourselves in our guise as participants in the unfolding of larger historical patternsOur lives are shaped by the accreted sediment ofecisions made by past generations within the Kings Mistress, Queens Servant domain circumscribed by thoseecisions we exist And some of the most fundamental Bump It Up decisions we make and inherit areecisions regarding meaning or about how to shape our human experience The semantic tools available for the shaping of self are our most critical inheritance from the past Self knowledge thus implies far than insight into personal experience it necessitates Fireheart (Chay Trilogy, developing a historical consciousness of the inherited patterns of meaning making that we have available for shaping our individual consciousness of self as it emerges at this given moment in time So to understand the female self as it has been historically constrained toevelop she targets her philosophical analysis to the representational tools and their limits that she has had available for her self constructionThe problem of incompletely formulated selfhood that she starts from Mr Campion and Others de Beauvoir takes great pains to suggest is not merely a piece of her idiosyncratic subjective biographical trajectory but is in a sense our problem as well to the extent that we are inheritors of a cultural heritage thatoes not afford us with the semantic tools that we need in order to lay claim to our experience through its shaping It is in this effort of shaping that autonomy is slowly consolidated and that we become a genuine acting unity or a full fledged individual A guiding thematic thread in her work is the exploration of how various cultural myths restrict woman to the contrary of autonomy which she calls a state of immanence This state of immanence is for her a stultifying state for a human existent to occupy whose inward striving relentlessly impels her to a transcendence through autonomy The inherited semantic tools far from helping woman shape her experience so as to converge on an autonomous perspective instead restrict her to an immanent identity wholly Fibber in the Heat defined by her contingent web of relations She must everefine herself as Our Endless Numbered Days daughter as mother as wife as friend as helper as nurturer as muse as treacherous slut The one position that is off limits is her own that is her knowing of herself as irreducible existent and autonomous center of meaning Her knowing of the one thing that no one can give to her nor take away from her is unavailable to her as so long as she operates through the inherited self alienating semantic paradigm This centrifugal purely contingent existencee Beauvoir persuasively argues is a humanly incomplete mode of being As long as we only know to look outside ourselves for our psychological substance we are lost to ourselves We never fully come to be as a selfThe trouble is that for a woman coming to consciousness the collective heritage she finds is invariably an inheritance of scars caricatures and symbolic Loyalty or Love deformations A young woman growing to consciousness of self must find herself in relation to an inheritance of meanings predominantly shaped by her male Other for whom she can only figure as an object that exists solely in relation to his aspirations and needs Her fulfilment as an existent as well as her fitness in the world are bothefined in instrumental terms in relation to her capacity to fulfil his need for meaning The pressing existential issue becomes for her to mould herself so as to become meaningful to him whatever meaning he might need for her to embody It is a ueer sort of estiny to exist only insofar as one is an object for the perception and appreciation of another De Beauvoir lingers on this strange self alienation say in a woman s use of self ornamentation in which she reflexively comes to see herself from the outside in The reductive mirror image becomes internalized creating a profound sense of issociation from herself The lived body as Merleau Ponty calls it becomes merely an object to contour just so for another s gaze She can seldom ever just be she must ever seem through some kind of relentless necessity even as in so Acts of the Assassins doing she merely starves herself of her true sustenance Such can only be provided by a richer relationship with her world established intrinsically through the taproot of her autonomy The eyes of others our prisons their thoughts our cages Woolf aptly put it ande Beauvoir concurs others gazes Jesus Through Pagan Eyes determine to a very profound extent the shape of ourestinies as women There are so many painfully surgical Bryant and May and the Memory of Blood (Bryant May, descriptions here of the growing woman sevelopmental history as she finds herself sliced up bit by bit by others glances and hedged into what becomes her place The young girl feels that her body is getting away from her On the street men follow her with their eyes and comment on her anatomy She would like to be invisible it frightens her to become flesh and to show flesh Thus a growing woman learns that she as an embodied being is not just a locus for meaning making but even urgently for her survival and flourishing in the world is an object for others She must continually extrude herself from Herself and shape herself as an object of perception and evaluation for the Other The goal of life is for her not learning to see but managing how others see her it is not coming to realization but being instrumental to others As she matures woman is progressively constrained to inhabit her subject stance only partially to the extent that meanings gleaned from the Other s often alienating perspective afford her indirect access to her self She must ever seek herself through his eyes As such she is oomed to encounter herself only as image In phenomenological parlance her stance is self objectifying never fully subjective De Beauvoir s extensive analysis here of how background mythical constructs of Nature regulate the alternative ways women are perceived is brilliant Through the identification of woman as an instrument of nature she acuires the characteristics positive or negative ascribed to Nature itself This makes some psychological sense Aside from our own bodies nature comes closest to our minds in our confrontation with the other sex The other sex is nature to us nature come terrifyinglyecstatically close and yet nature that remains ungraspably other and alien to our consciousness The problem here is of course that it is only the male that is the center of perspective the female is the absolute other and is thus identified with pure inhuman nature She is either the nurturant mother nature the all encompassing nurturant principle of sympathy or else nature as the beast that ensnares merely to evour She thus finds herself in a rather impossible position internalizing a tradition of self alienating representations made of her which supposedly exhaust her nature while nonetheless being radically alien to this tradition in the innermost truth of
Her Experience For Which She Has Inherited Few Clear Wordsexperience for which she has inherited few clear words she can make entirely her own few artistically embodied meanings and almost no usable philosophical formulations What self can she scrounge up out of such scattered fragmentsThis Rumour Has It (Girl Heart Boy, dissociation from lived experience and personal meaning making is a big price to pay for social survival And if Mary Pipher is correct in Reviving Ophelia this same fate of prematureevelopmental arrest Doctor Who due to internalizing a self alienating perspective still awaits young girls today The choice is grim a girl must choose between love and belonging on the one hand and full selfevelopment on the other The situation s rigged such that she often cannot have both As Pipher ruefully notes when uestioned people Renegade define feminineevelopment and full adult Gift Songs development in antithetical terms Thus to be a properly feminine woman as per our cultural norms is to be a psychologicallyisabled adult incapable of agency or of self Uniform Doll directed logical judgment In short she must choose between theemands of her relational self and those of her autonomous self between alienation and amputation The tension created by attempting to inhabit a subject stance only through self alienating representational tools is only part of the conflict Lestate del coniglio nero de Beauvoir finds in a woman s coming to consciousness A further tension is added by the veryuality of human sexual nature which introduces an additional and Paper Promises deeply ambiguous constraint through the relational mutuality of the sexes De Beauvoir finds with a kind of surprise and it seems to me also understandableismay that she is first and foremost a woman Yet am I first a woman when I close my eyes and think Is our sexuality really the primal reality of our conscious experience When I sit The Nudist on the Late Shift down and reflect and there s nobody in the room I seem to myself to be just a good ole thinking thing A light flickering in thearkness I seem to myself indivisible the center of my phenomenal experience a sort of singularity Wittgenstein seems to have got it better than Secret Agent Mummy (Secret Agent Mummy, de Beauvoir The philosophical I is not the man not the human body or the human soul of which psychology treats but the metaphysical subject the limit not a part of the world I become a aware of my sexuality only when confronted by another and shoved back into being just a partial being one item of theuality of human nature a woman Does Simone e Beauvoir really mean to say that walking in the forest alone with only the trees for her companions she Really Feels The Word feels the word has any meaning when applied to her conscious experience Well no as she escribes those rare moments in nature when one fully inhabits oneself as a center of meaning making consciousness uncircumscribed by any Other s gaze From her text I glean that sexuality is a kind of polarization we undergo when mingled with others it is the form of our being in relation We get pushed into one pole to complement the encountered other and to balance out the interaction There is the same sort of Georgia difference here as between theark expansiveness that Woolf s Mrs Ramsay To the Lighthouse encounters in herself when she rests contained in her unreachable solitude on the one hand and her gushy all nurturing effusiveness when circumscribed within her role as motherwifesociety pillar on the other This implies a strange Il regno di Carbonel (Carbonel double meaning for her foundational self recognition as a woman she is simultaneously one part of the sexuallyual form human nature manifests and an autonomous irreducible unity in her own right She is fundamentally free yet also fundamentally a self emerging and constructing itself in relation to an other This brings me to the central ifficulty I have with her argument The former is in keeping with her Existentialist commitments absolutely "AUTONOMOUS FREE CHOICE IS THE STUFF OF HUMAN LIFETHE "free choice is the stuff of human lifeThe suggests a teleological ordering of the sexes into a structure of essential relatedness and interdependence The former ivides the world into sovereign individuals each initiating contractual relations through the sheer force of personal choice unmotivated by any natural impulse to relate the latter makes of us community animals as both sexes are partial beings each reuiring union with the other for its completion The whole rama of this conflict comes out in sharp relief in her escription of the ueer metamorphosis of selfhood that is motherhood Pregnancy is above all a Dick Franciss Bloodline drama that is acted out within the woman herself She feels it as at once an enrichment and an injury the fetus is part of her body and it is a parasite that feeds on it she possesses it and she is possessed by it it represents the future and carrying it she feels herself vast as the world but this very opulence annihilates her she feels that she herself is no longer anything Ensnared by nature the pregnant woman is plant and animal a stock pile of colloids an incubator an egg she scares children proud of their young straight bodies and makes young people titter contemptuously because she is a
