  1. Bart van Leeuwen & Karen Vintges (2010). "A Dream, Dreamed by Reason . . . Hollow Like All Dreams": French Existentialism and Its Critique of Abstract Liberalism. [REVIEW] Hypatia 25 (3):653 - 674.
    The recent chiming of Simone de Beauvoir's legacy by French feminists for a policy of assimilation of Muslim women to Western models of self and society reduces the complexity and richness of Beauvoir's views in inacceptable ways. This article explores to what extent a politics of difference that challenges the ideals and political strategies of abstract liberalism can be extracted from and legitimized by the philosophies of Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre. Without assuming their thought is identical, we can (...)

  6. Karen Vintges (2001). 'Must We Burn Foucault?' Ethics as Art of Living: Simone de Beauvoir and Michel Foucault. [REVIEW] Continental Philosophy Review 34 (2):165-181.
    The title of this article refers to Beauvoir's essay Must We Burn De Sade? (1953/1952). Analogous to Beauvoir's essay on Sade, this article is something of an apology for Foucault. I use Beauvoir's essay on Sade to discuss Foucault's concept of ethics as an art of living. I conclude that the final Foucault's thought on ethics can be labelled a post-existentialism, combining postmodern thinking and the issues of freedom and commitment in an inspiring way. I argue, however, that the (...)

  7. Karen Vintges (1999). Simone de Beauvoir: A Feminist Thinker for Our Times. Hypatia 14 (4):133 - 144.
    For many, Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex has only historic significance. The aim of this article is to show on the contrary that Beauvoir's philosophy already contains all the elements of contemporary feminism-so much so that it can be taken as its paradigm. Beauvoir's ideas about the self are extremely relevant today. Feminist themes such as the logic of "equality and difference" and identity are interwoven in her thinking in ways that can offer solutions to what seem to be (...)
