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

9 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and French and held by 244 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

L'évolution de la pensée de Simone Weil sur le rôle du travail dans la vie de l'individu et dans celle de la société by Robert Chenavier( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

WORK HAS BEEN AT THE CORE OF SIMONE WEIL'S PHILOSOPHICAL ANALYSIS, FROM HER FIRST ESSAYS, WRITTEN WHEN SHE WAS A PUPIL OF ALAIN, DOWN TO HER LAST SPIRITUAL WORKS. WHILE CARRYING ON WITH THE ANALYSIS OF "THE FRENCH SCHOOL OF PERCEPTION", SIMONE WEIL DEVELOPS THE IDEA THAT REAL PERCEPTION - THE ONE THAT ENABLES ONE TO TEST NECESSITY THROUGH IMPRESSIONS - IS WORK. THIS PHILOSOPHICAL PROSPECT - NURTURED BY DESCARTES AND MARX, INTERLOCUTORS BOTH SUMMONED AND CRITICIZED - IS TAKEN UP AT EVERY STAGE OF THE WEILIAN PHILOSOPHY, IN MORE COMMITTED TEXTS OR POLITICAL WORKS, IN ORDER TO SHOW THAT, WHATEVER NAME IT IS GIVEN - DEMOCRACY, SOCIALISM, "CIVILIZATION FOUNDED ON THE SPIRITUALITY OF WORK" - WORK IS THE CORE OF ALL CONCEPTION OF A DESIRABLE SOCIAL ORDER. THE NOTION OF WORK MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO CONNECT THE DIFFERENT STAGES OF THE AUTHOR'S PHILOSOPHY, FOR CROSSING A THRESHOLD, IN SEVERAL OCCASIONS, IMPLIES NEITHER DISCONTINUANCE NOR DENIAL FROM HER. WHAT ALWAYS MATTERS IS TO IMPROVE THE METHOD OF READING, IN ORDER TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF REALITY, APPREHENDED IN THEIR TRUE IDENTITY. WHILE EXPLORING IN A PLATONICIAN MANNER THE LEVELS OF THE BEING AND THE DEGREES OF KNOWLEDGE, SIMONE WEIL PRESENTS WORK AS WHAT ENABLES ONE TO TEST THE REAL ARTICULATION BETWEEN LIBERTY AND NECESSITY, THE CONSENT TO NECESSITY, THE WORLD'S UNHAPPINESS AND BEAUTY. BY MAKING GOOD USE OF THESE TESTS, THE FIELD OF SUPERNATURAL REALITY CAN BE ATTAINED. THROUGH ANALOGY AND SYMBOL, ACHIEVED IN THE CRAFTS, THE WORKMAN WOULD BE IN THE BEST POSITION TO REACH THE SUPERIOR FORM OF INTUITIVE ATTENTION AND TO RENEW THE PACT BETWEEN THE MIND AND THE UNIVERSE, TAKEN AS "TRUE METAPHOR" WHOSE SUPREME POET WOULD BE GOD
