Lectures on Philosophy by Simone Weil
Book DescriptionSimone Weil's Lecons de Philosophie are derived from a course she taught at the lycee for girls at Roanne in 1933-4. Anne Reynaud-Guerithault was a pupil in the class; her notes are not a verbatim record but are a very full and, as far as one can judge, faithful rendering, often catching the unmistakable tone of Simone Weil's voice as well as the force and the directness of her thought. The lectures form a good general introduction to philosophy, ranging widely over problems about perception, mind, language, reasoning and problems in moral and political philosophy too. Her method of presentation is a characteristic combination of abstract argument, personal experience and literary or historical reference. Peter Winch points out in his introduction to the book some of the more systematic connections in her philosophical work (and between this philosophical work and her other concerns), and makes a number of suggestive comparisons between Simone Weil and Wittgenstein. The translation is by Hugh Price from the Plon edition of 1959. Dr Price has added some notes to explain references in the text that might be unfamiliar to English speaking students beginning philosophy.

Books By Author Simone Weil
On the Abolition of All Political Parties, Paperback (November 2014)
Simone Weil is one of the most intransigent and taxing of spiritual masters, always willing to push her thinking-and us-one step beyond the apparently reasonable in pursuit of the one truth, the one good.
Waiting on God, Hardback (September 2009)
Presents an introduction to the work of Simone Wei. This book deals with her letters written to the Reverend Father Perrin, O P, who befriended her at Marseilles and, the only priest she knew, became her intimate friend.
War and the Iliad, Paperback (April 2006)» View all books by Simone Weil
These essays do more than prove the permanent relevance of Homer's great poem. They analyze the logic of war itself, and explore how intoxicating violence defines the human condition.
