Read in June, 1995

I followed up my reading of Sartre's Being and Nothingness with reading de Beauvoir's The Second Sex. It seemed only fair to read a big long book by her after reading one by him. I was disappointed by this book; it was like I'd heard it all before. I don't think that's quite fair of me to be disappointed on that account. She was the first one to say a lot of those things so the popularity of her thought has made the original expression of it seem a bit tired and slow going.
