Write a 10 page paper (double-spaced, Times New Roman) on one of the topics below:
* How does de Beauvoirâ€™s understanding of â€œbeing-for-(or-with)-othersâ€ stand in relation to Sartreâ€™s view?
* How does de Beauvoirâ€™s suggestion that the for-itself should accept and maintain â€œdistanceâ€ (with her emphasis on promoting freedom and possibilities), relate to, and affect, Sartreâ€™s diagnosis that the for-itself is an unstable teleology, i.e. is teleological without having an achievable end?
* Does de Beauvoirâ€™s view of freedom, etc. offer resources for overcoming â€œbad faithâ€ and achieving an authentic human existence?
* Does de Beauvoirâ€™s view offer a motivation that might counter-balance the for-itselfâ€™s fundamental project of becoming an in-itself-for-itself?
*Does de Beauvoir offer enough material to suggest an existentialist ethics that would make good on Sartreâ€™s unfulfilled promise to provide one? What would this ethical system look like? What principles of action could be generated from her views on freedom, etc.? How would this address the worry that maintaining an emphasis on subjectivity would necessarily develop into ethical subjectivism?
Use Simone de Beauvoirâ€™s The Ethics of Ambiguity to compare with Sartre’s views in Being and Nothingness. Explain how it complements, corrects, expands upon and clarifies, or makes significant changes to Sartreâ€™s theory.
