Publisher's Summary

The Ethics of Ambiguity was Simone de Beauvoir's second major work of non-fiction. It consists of three parts and a short conclusion. 

Part I, titled "Ambiguity and Freedom", provides the philosophical underpinnings of de Beauvoir's ethics. 

Part II, "Personal Freedom and Others," looks at the ways in which people try to deny their freedom, and the type of person that misuse freedom, like the nihilist, the adventurer and the passionate man. 

In Part III, "The Positive Aspect of Ambiguity," the author examines the intricacies and nuances of genuinely free action in the world, in the sections "The Aesthetic Attitude," "Freedom and Liberation," "The Present and the Future," and "Ambiguity". 

In the conclusion, de Beauvoir gives a summary of her view of human freedom.
