Phenomenology and the ethical bases of pluralism

Arendt and Beauvoir on race in the United States

Michael Barber

pp. 149-174

Though differing in their approach to race in the United States, Hannah Arendt and Simone de Beauvoir work on two different levels of a philosophical-ethical spectrum, paralleling Husserl's distinction between the transcendental and pretheoretical, life-world levels. Each level needs the other in order to realize an authentic sociopolitical pluralism.
