Oppression and Liberty by Simone Weil

Book Description

The remarkable French thinker Simone Weil is one of the leading intellectual and spiritual figures of the twentieth century. A legendary essayist, political philosopher and member of the French resistance, her literary output belied her tragically short life. Most of her work was published posthumously, to widespread acclaim. Always concerned with the nature of individual freedom, Weil explores in Oppression and Liberty its political and social implications. Analyzing the causes of oppression, its mechanisms and forms, she questions revolutionary responses and presents a prophetic view of a way forward. If, as she noted elsewhere, 'the future is made of the same stuff as the present', then there will always be a need to continue to listen to Simone Weil.

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.
