Dennis Smith. 1999. Zygmunt Bauman: Prophet of Postmodernity. Cambridge: Polity Press. DENNIS SMITH SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR Simone de Beauvoir was born in Paris in 1908, the elder of two daughters of bourgeois parents. Beauvoir’s intellectual abilities were apparent from an early age and the change in her family’s economic circumstances was such that the young Beauvoir – contrary to the expectations about young bourgeois women of the time – was allowed to train for a career. The profession she chose was that of teacher of philosophy, and it was during this training that she encountered the secular, critical world of European philosophy – a world inhabited not just by ideas that challenged those of her former milieu but by the person of Jean-Paul Sartre, the man with whom she was to form a complex, life-long relationship.
The assumptions that underpinned this gendered account of intellectual creativity were to be challenged – although not perhaps fully discussed until years later – by the publication in 1949 of The Second Sex. In this work Beauvoir voiced the now famous comment that ‘women are made and not born’. Beauvoir did not trespass into those places where Judith Butler and others were to take this idea some thirty years later, but what she did do was to suggest that men (and Man) are the deﬁnitive norm of human existence.
