Simon de Beauvoir - value in words, truth


Reading Holland (2002) introduction to de Beauvoir. She quotes - "I am an intellectual. I take words and truth to be of value." Force of Circumstance, p.378.


Truth is part of the new/learning Value Dimension. Truth is a community and socially constructed concept (Berger & Luckmann 1967). Words and truth relate to 'power', 'community' - both social value dimensions.
