Summary Philosophy as Passion refutes the commonly held view of Simone de Beauvoir as no more than an acolyte of Jean-Paul Sartre. Karen Vintges delineates Beauvoir's independent, original ethics and philosophy, drawing on the moral philosophical treatises of the 1940's and 1950's along with The Second Sex, her novel The Mandarins, and autobiographical works
