Episode 141: De Beauvoir’s Existentialism: Moral and Political Dilemmas (Part One)

Episode 141: De Beauvoir’s Existentialism: Moral and Political Dilemmas (Part One)

More on The Ethics of Ambiguity (1947), this time on part III. Ep. 140 laid out man's "ambiguity," but what does that mean in terms of practical decision making? De B. talks about the practical paradoxes of dealing with oppression and what it might mean to respect the individual given that there's no ultimate, pre-existent moral rule-book to guide us, nothing we can point to to excuse the sacrifice of someone to a "greater good."
