Research title
A study of the philosophical foundations in Young Beauvoir.
Research abstract

Often, in traditional philosophical studies, various concepts and debates present in the writings of the philosopher Simone de Beauvoir are associated with those correspondingly developed by her life partner, Sartre. However, it is possible to perceive in his first philosophical essays and in his diaries the autonomy and originality that his thought and writings have, existing independently from those of Sartre, as well as it becomes possible to analyze the influences he receives from Merleau-Ponty. Based on the Diaries and Notebooks of Student of Philosophy, our hypothesis will focus on searching for the real philosophical, literary, phenomenological and existentialist bases of the French philosopher's thought.
