Notebooks of Simone Weil by Simone Weil

Book Description

Simone Weil (1909-1943) was a defining figure of the twentieth century; a philosopher, Christian, resistance fighter, anarchist, feminist, Labour activist and teacher. She was described by T. S. Eliot as 'a woman of genius, of a kind of genius akin to that of the saints', and by Albert Camus as 'the only great spirit of our time'. Originally published posthumously in two volumes, these newly reissued notebooks, are among the very few unedited personal writings of Weil's that still survive today. Containing her thoughts on art, love, science, God and the meaning of life, they give context and meaning to Weil's famous works, revealing an unique philosophy in development and offering a rare private glimpse of her singular personality.

Books By Author Simone Weil

On the Abolition of All Political Parties by 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 by Simone Weil 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 by Simone Weil War and the Iliad, Paperback (April 2006)

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.
