Sample text

I would argue that this book engages with texts which, in exploring and problematising the figure of de Beauvoir, her life and her work, are themselves productive of ways of being. The same may be said of my own analysis and, in this respect, this account is an infinitely regressive study of discourses of sexuality and selfhood. 22 Bisexuality and Simone de Beauvoir The combined analysis of the discursive production of de Beauvoir and of bisexuality indicates, firstly, that bisexuality, in various forms, has a presence in most of the texts considered here and, as such, may be perceived neither as an aporia nor an absence.

The following analysis will pay particular attention to the ways that, in the practical application of Foucault’s work, the very presuppositions which were to be dismantled are frequently reconfigured. Interestingly, and perhaps because of their shared trajectories, some of the charges brought against queer theory and activism might also be brought against Foucault. As I will argue, the politicisation of identity, and the notion of Foucault’s ‘aesthetics of the self’, have been complicated by the emergence of theories which share similar themes and draw on similar tropes, but which are not situated within the same radical context: for example, techniques of the self which emphasise the body on display, in performance and ‘self-care’ strategies.

Instead, de Beauvoir is employed as a cipher through which well-documented techniques of the self, and particularly techniques pertaining to sexual identity, may be examined. Similarly, existentialism is important here only insofar as commentators understand it to have had a significant role in shaping the self that they ascribe to de Beauvoir. Toril Moi for example, whose book Simone de Beauvoir: The Making of an Intellectual Woman (1994) is one of the texts that I explore throughout this analysis,21 claims that de Beauvoir’s belief in existentialism had a number of specific implications for ‘her’ psyche.
