Susan Taubes (1928–1969) was born to a Jewish family in Hungary. The daughter of a psychoanalyst, Taubes emigrated to the United States in 1939 and studied religion at Harvard. She married the philosopher and scholar Jacob Taubes and taught religion at Columbia University from 1960 to 1969. She committed suicide in 1969, soon after the publication of Divorcing.
