(p.199) Chapter 7 Conclusion
Simone de Beauvoir's Philosophy of Individuation

Laura Hengehold

Edinburgh University Press

Will women’s freedom from sexist sense mean an end to the concept of the “Other”? Who is Beauvoir’s Other? This chapter sets The Second Sex in dialogue with Deleuze’s references to the “Other” in Logic of Sense and Difference and Repetition. Focusing on an autobiographical scene that was eventually deleted from her first novel, this chapter suggests that the Independent Woman occupies the structural place of the Other in Beauvoir’s Idea of the sense that might arise in place of sexist representations and habits.

Keywords:   Sense, problematization, the Other, Levinas, the Independent Woman
