Simone de Beauvoir, Hannah Arendt, Simone Weil and Ayn Rand all felt ‘different’ in the world: – and changed the way we think

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

This book is a wild ride through ten of the worst years in the 20th century, spanning the period from 1933, the year Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany, to 1943 and the thick of the second world war. It’s told through the occasionally intersecting lives of four brilliant young women philosophers: Simone de Beauvoir and Simone Weil (both French), Russian-American Ayn Rand, and German-Jewish Hannah Arendt, who spent time exiled in France and New York.
