The Beauvoir Series

Acquiring Editor:
Series Editors: Margaret A. Simons and Sylvie Le Bon de Beauvoir

The Beauvoir Series is a seven-volume collaborative project involving an international team of scholars in philosophy and French language and literature. The series will provide scholarly editions in English of Simone de Beauvoir's philosophical texts, including some only recently discovered, and ranging from her early writings as a philosophy student at the Sorbonne through her later essays on existentialist ethics and finally to a preface written in the last year of her life.

The publication of books in this series has been supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, an independent federal agency; a translation grant from the French Ministry of Culture; and a Matching Funds grant from the Illinois Board of Higher Education.

"Through the use of fresh translations and by directing our attention to the philosophical import of overlooked tests, this series calls on the philosophical community to add Beauvoir's name to the overly patriarchal canonical registry."--APA Newsletter
