Résumé

Cinquante ans après sa publication, l’essai de Beauvoir La Vieillesse offre une étude du vieillissement toujours actuelle, qui dénonce l’âgisme de manière originale. Le présent article montre comment l’analyse croisée de Beauvoir nous aide à penser différemment l’âgisme contemporain, notamment en expliquant comment il est exacerbé par le classisme et le sexisme.

Abstract

Fifty years after it was first published, Beauvoir’s treatise The Coming of Age provides an analysis of aging that is still significant today in its original criticisms of aging. This article shows how Beauvoir’s interdisciplinary analysis helps us to understand contemporary ageism differently, notably in its explanations of how ageism is exacerbated by classism and sexism.
