zu viele beispiele, zu wenige grundsätzliche fragestellungen und tiefgründige auseinandersetzungen. dazu muss ich fairerweise sagen, dass nicht nur zu der zeit (1970) sich kaum einer über-das-alter-schreiben traute, und dafür - cheapeau, madame de beauvoir. gute recherche, viel hintergrundwissen, leidenschaftliche intelligenz.
