Karen Zoppa is an instructor at the University of Winnipeg.


Chapter Five rehearses the emergence of the "other” as the key figure in Beauvoir texts, in her own experience and through her engagement with Hegel, followed by an analysis of how this figure operates within her philosophical ethic as it appears in Pyrrhus and Cineas and The Ethics of Ambiguity. This analysis leads to a discussion of other inflections of the other in her texts - the other as a locus of unending desire, impossible desire - even as this other is the justification for each person’s existence.
