Seminar: Simone de Beauvoir on being in love

NB Please ignore the notice that this series only runs until October (and please note that the November date is 27 November, not 26 November). It will go on after that, but when I changed the text to give better directions, the Meetup site split the series in two.

At each seminar, we discuss a short philosophical text, or tackle a philosophical question. See Anja's message below for this month's text.

We want to keep these events reasonably small, so that we can keep the discussion focused, and so that everyone can participate. Please book your place by using the RSVP button. If you book and then find that you cannot make it, please cancel your booking, so that someone else can take your place.

The venue is the main ground floor foyer of the National Theatre on the South Bank. We will try to be as near to the downstream end as we can (the end furthest from Waterloo Bridge). If you are in doubt, come into the foyer, find the Lyttleton cloakroom, stand just in front of it, facing the cloakroom counter, and look in the alcove of half a dozen tables to your left. We will try to be there, but if it is occupied, we will have to move up towards the area in front of the Long Bar.

We will normally start at 7.45 pm, but when the main theatre's play starts at 8, we will start at 8.15, so that the foyer is clear for us. Please check each event, to confirm the time.

This seminar will be conducted by Anja Steinbauer.

    Hello, apologies for the change. I'm stuck at my office with a project deadline looming. I hope someone is able to go in my place. Best wishes for an engaging discussion.

    Dear All,
    Looking forward to our discussion on Simone de Beauvoir. If you have a copy of The Second Sex, you could look up the section on "The Woman in Love". In any case, here is an excellent interview with Simone which will give you an idea of the general flavour of her feminism: http://www.marxists.org/reference/subject/ethics/de-beauvoir/1976/interview.htm.
    I'll bring along some photocopied passages from the chapter from The Second Sex.
    See you Wednesday!

    Oh the meetup website can be so annoying. I was on the attendee list for ages but then added a +1 and it moved me to the bottom of the waiting list. :(

    I hope this time i get an alert message a few hours prior to the event. last time i missed the seminar on Seneca because I got a confirmation 1 1/2 hours before but it was too late. . . Looking forward to this one.

      I hope that doesn't happen again. But it depends entirely on when anyone who has already accepted, notifies that he or she cannot come after all. Then the system moves someone up from the waiting list. This does mean that if people are unable to make it, it is really helpful if they can come back to the site and change their status from "coming" to "not coming", or from "waiting list" to "not coming", promptly.
