It is suggested in the conclusion, by analogy with Heidegger’s argument about the subject’s thinking of another person’s death, that Guibert’s concern for his great-aunts’ ageing is inauthentic, a screen for meditating on the prospect of his own encounter with the process. 56 A common theme in this discussion of my choice of material is that of neglect.

Both works are divided into two parts: the ‘view from the outside’ followed by the ‘view from the inside’. 5 The second part is said here to describe ‘du point de vue des femmes le monde tel qu’il leur est proposé’. In the Preamble to La Vieillesse, Beauvoir announces what appears to be an almost identical approach: Pour autrui, le vieillard est l’objet d’un savoir; pour soi, il a de son état une expérience vécue.
