It's so interesting to read Simone de Beauvoir's words, straight from the horse's mouth, as they say. This series of interviews spans approximately a decade, the decade after feminism as we know it (from the 60s/70s) had taken its political hold. Among other things, de Beauvoir comments on whether she is a feminist (yes), ideas from The Second Sex that she had revised, and the feminism-socialism connection(s) and differences. Interesting stuff!

Die Interviews und Gespräche zwischen Schwarzer und De Beauvoir im Zeitraum von 1972-1982 zeigen Simone de Beauvoir als existentialistische Philosophin, Schriftstellerin, Feministin und private Person. So kommt auch Beauvoirs lebenslanger Partner Jean-Paul Sartre in einem Interview vor, in welchem er und Beauvoir u.a. über die besondere Art ihrer Liebesbeziehung sinnieren. Eine schöne Auswahl und interessante Einblicke in das Denken und Leben Beauvoirs.
This book was okay. I did learn some interesting things about Beauvoir, such as she didn't consider herself a feminist until later in her life, and she had an abortion during her lifetime. I think I would have appreciated the book more if I had previously heard of the feminist philosopher who had interviewed her. But I think I would prefer to read Beauvoir's autobiography.
ein sehr schönes buch, das die grundsätze des feminismus und die geschichte der frauenbewegung in einer wunderschönen freundschaft verpackt beschreibt. einfach zu lesen, und für alle, die nicht das nötige durchhalte vermögen besitzen, eine von Beauvoirs Theorien zu lesen, sich aber dafür interessieren.
