Simone Weil, attention to the real by Robert Chenavier( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in French and English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can we articulate the intimate demand of the spiritual life and the struggle for solidarity? These two issues have often been treated separately; in Simone Weil: Attention to the Real, however, Robert Chenavier explores the work of Simone Weil (1909{u2013}1943) and demonstrates how she brought them together in a single movement of thought. "Our time has a unique mission, calling for the creation of a civilization based on the spirituality of work," she wrote near the end of her short life. Her experience as a militant and the call of the divine nurtured in her writing an intense and unwavering defense of this new civilization, backed by her personal sense of intellectual, moral, and political responsibility. Originally published in French in 2009, Simone Weil: Attention to the Real leads the reader through her earliest writing as a perceptive social critic to her work on spirituality and materialism, and finally to her extraordinary concept of decreation, produced before her death at the age of thirty-four. "To an exceptional degree," Chenavier says, "the life of Simone Weil, her personality, her commitment, and her reflection form one single whole." Chenavier argues that Weil's vocation took on a very original form in the history of philosophical thought. He is especially concerned with Weil's philosophical writings on the concept of work, which remain relevant today, and which provide an important key to her thinking throughout her life. Bernard Doering's superb translation brings to English readers Chenavier's succinct account of Simone Weil's life and an illuminating introduction to her philosophical thought."--Publisher's description

LE TRAVAIL OCCUPE LE CENTRE DE L'ANALYSE PHILOSOPHIQUE, CHEZ SIMONE WEIL, DEPUIS SES PREMIERS ESSAIS, REDIGES ALORS QU'ELLE ETAIT ELEVE D'ALAIN, JUSQU'AUX DERNIERS ECRITS SPIRITUELS. PROLONGEANT LES ANALYSES DE "L'ECOLE FRANCAISE DE LA PERCEPTION", SIMONE WEIL DEVELOPPE L'IDEE QUE LA PERCEPTION VRAIE - CELLE QUI PERMET DE FAIRE L'EPREUVE DE LA NECESSITE A TRAVERS LES IMPRESSIONS - EST LE TRAVAIL. CETTE PERSPECTIVE PHILOSOPHIQUE - NOURRIE DE DESCARTES ET DE MARX, INTERLOCUTEURS A LA FOIS CONVOQUES ET CRITIQUES - EST REPRISE A CHAQUE ETAPE DE LA PENSEE WEILIENNE, DANS DES TEXTES PLUS MILITANTS OU DANS DES ECRITS DE REFLEXION POLITIQUE, POUR MONTRER QUE, QUEL QUE SOIT LE NOM QU'ON LUI DONNE - DEMOCRATIE, SOCIALISME, "CIVILISATION FONDEE SUR LA SPIRITUALITE DU TRAVAIL" - LE TRAVAIL CONSTITUE LE CENTRE DE TOUTE CONCEPTION D'UN ORDRE SOCIAL SOUHAITABLE. LA NOTION DE TRAVAIL PERMET DE RELIER LES DIFFERENTES ETAPES DE LA PHILOSOPHIE DE L'AUTEUR, LE FRANCHISSEMENT D'UN SEUIL, A PLUSIEURS REPRISES, N'IMPLIQUANT DE SA PART NI RUPTURE NI RENIEMENT. IL S'AGIT TOUJOURS DE PERFECTIONNER LA METHODE DE LECTURE, AFIN DE PRENDRE CONTACT AVEC LES DIFFERENTS NIVEAUX DE LA REALITE, SAISIS DANS LEUR VERITE. EN EXPLORANT D'UNE MANIERE PLATONICIENNE LES NIVEAUX DE L'ETRE ET LES DEGRES DE CONNAISSANCE, SIMONE WEIL PRESENTE LE TRAVAIL COMME CE QUI PERMET DE FAIRE L'EPREUVE DE LA VERITABLE ARTICULATION ENTRE LIBERTE ET NECESSITE, DU CONSENTEMENT A LA NECESSITE, DU MALHEUR ET DE LA BEAUTE DU MONDE. EN FAISANT UN BON USAGE DE CES EPREUVES, ON PEUT ATTEINDRE LE DOMAINE DE LA REALITE SURNATURELLE. PAR LA VOIE DE L'ANALOGIE ET DU SYMBOLE, REALISES DANS LES METIERS, LE TRAVAILLEUR SERAIT LE MIEUX PLACE POUR ATTEINDRE LA FORME SUPERIEURE DE L'ATTENTION INTUITIVE, ET POUR RENOUER LE PACTE DE L'ESPRIT AVEC L'UNIVERS, PRIS COMME "METAPHORE REELLE" DONT DIEU SERAIT LE SUPREME POETE

The need for roots; prelude to a declaration of duties toward mankind by Simone Weil( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written while Simone Weil worked at the French Headquarters in London, The Need for Roots was published posthumously under the title L'Enracinement, in 1949. She had been commissioned by General de Gaulle, head of the Free French forces, to write a report on the duties and privileges of the French after the liberation. An intensely spiritual person, Simone Weil felt it an obligation to experience life as others had to, working in factories and on farms. She became concerned by the idea of uprootedness and, in this report, called on her fellow French to recover their spiritual roots, stressing the need for security. She was to die of tuberculosis a year after being commissioned to write The Need for Roots, having refused to eat more than the rations of those suffering Nazi occupation in France

La condición obrera by Simone Weil( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Resultado de la experiencia de "proletarización" de Simone Weil en las fábricas Alsthom y Renault durante los años 1934/35, este libro reúne sus escritos políticos y filosóficos sobre la cuestión obrera. De esta obra dijo Albert Camus: "Desde Marx, el pensamiento político y social no había producido en Occidente nada más pe netrante ni profético". En un marco de reflexión más amplio que el trazado por las filosofías del trabajo que la precedieron, Simone Weil considera que es posible hacer la experiencia de una actividad metódica, provista de significación espiritual, en la esfera del trabajo socialmente necesario. Tal es su originalidad con respecto a Marx, que concebía a la vez como una necesidad histórica y como un fin deseable, una humanidad que se emancipara del trabajo y no solamente en el trabajo. Simone Weil es sin duda quien ha llevado más lejos la reflexión filosófica y espiritual sobre las condiciones más favorables, en la organización del trabajo, para las más elevadas operaciones del espíritu, ya sean discursivas o intuitivas. Si su pensamiento sobre el lugar de trabajo es invalorable, es porque ninguna filosofía antes de ella había concedido una primacía tal a la actividad laboral, al punto que una vez realizada en la sociedad la forma metódica y no servil de esta actividad, sus leyes y sus virtudes podrían ser traspuestas al dominio político y al dominio espiritual."--Contratapa
