The present paper aims to read Beauvoir through the diaries that she has written in 1926–1927. Firstly, by reading these diaries I endeavor to understand the philosophical culmination of her thoughts which begin from her diaries. Secondly, after elucidating her philosophical views on self and other from her diaries I would like to make a larger philosophical argument in relation to the originality and ingenuity of Beauvoir as a philosopher and a thinker. She stands independent of Sartre and her diaries bear the originality of her philosophical concepts.
