Abstract: This paper explores how Beauvoir’s unique position as a woman commenting on the ‘feminine condition’ in The Second Sex lead to fundamental differences from Sartre’s philosophy in Being and Nothingness. It shows how Beauvoir and Sartre’s views diverge in two ways: in differing obstacles to freedom, and in contrasting views on a possibility of reconciliation between the Subject and Other.
