Toril Moi. "Simone de Beauvoir." The British Academy. March 20, 2014.
The British Academy Master-Mind Lecture delivered by Professor Toril Moi on March 20 2014 at the British Academy in London.
Join Professor Moi as she discusses Simone de Beauvoir, a ‘Master-Mind’ in feminist theory. Author of The Second Sex – one of the greatest works of feminist theory ever written – Simone de Beavoir’s writing and work demonstrate that literature and philosophy provide indispensable understanding of human existance and the role of woman in society. Beauvoir’s vindication of the knowledge produced by the arts and the humanities is more significant than ever before.
