Gravity and grace by Simone Weil( Book )

125 editions published between 1947 and 2009 in 9 languages and held by 1,986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gravity and Grace was the first ever publication by the remarkable thinker and activist, Simone Weil. In it Gustave Thibon, the farmer to whom she had entrusted her notebooks before her untimely death, compiled in one remarkable volume a compendium of her writings that have become a source of spiritual guidance and wisdom for countless individuals. On the fiftieth anniversary of the first English edition - by Routledge & Kegan Paul in 1952 - this Routledge Classics edition offers English readers the complete text of this landmark work for the first time ever, by incorporating a specially commissioned translation of the controversial chapter on Israel. Also previously untranslated is Gustave Thibon's postscript of 1990, which reminds us how privileged we are to be able to read a work which offers each reader such 'light for the spirit and nourishment for the soul'. This is a book that no one with a serious interest in the spiritual life can afford to be without

Waiting for God by Simone Weil( Book )

106 editions published between 1950 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A la espera de Dios es una compilación póstuma de cartas y ensayos escritos entre enero y junio de 1942. En todos ellos asombra la actitud atenta y expectante de Simone Weil así como también asombra el poder observarla en el umbral del catolicismo, sin cruzarlo. En la primera parte de la obra hay una selección de cartas enviadas a J. M. Perrin, un sacerdote próximo a Simone Weil. En ellas es impresionante leer la exigencia de Verdad que la filósofa reclama, además de darse cuenta de la claridad con la que se abre y entiende el catolicismo. Seguidamente, una vez el lector está completamente anonadado y atrapado en la transparencia mística de Weil, hay una serie de ensayos dignos de los grandes místicos españoles como San Juan de la Cruz o Santa Teresa de Jesús. Además de demostrar una gran comprensión del catolicismo, también deja entrever su pasión por los clásicos griegos y por el conocimiento de otras civilizaciones mediterráneas como las de Canaan. Finalmente, cabe destacar un comentario y una explicación, poco conocidos, del Padre Nuestro que obligarán a entender la oración como "la orientación hacia Dios de toda la atención de que el alma es capaz", es decir, como hecha sólo de atención

"Simone Weil's "The Iliad, or the Poem of Force" is one of her most celebrated works - an analysis of Homer's epic that presents a nightmare vision of combat as a machine in which all humanity is lost. First published on the eve of war in 1939, the essay has often been read as a pacifist manifesto. Rachel Bespaloff was a French contemporary of Weil's whose work similarly explored the complex relations between literature, religion, and philosophy. She composed her own distinctive discussion of the Iliad in the midst of World War II

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
Simone Weil; a fellowship in love by Jacques Cabaud( Book )

7 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in French and Undetermined and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present book reflects on the life, work, and legacy of an exceptional and enigmatic woman: the philosopher and French Jewish mystic Simone Weil. It constitutes a testimony so unique that it is impossible to ignore.In a Europe where authoritarian regimes were dominant and heading, in a sinister manner, toward World War II, this woman of fragile health but indomitable spirit denounced the contradictions of the capitalist system, the brutality of Nazism, and the paradox of bourgeois thought. At the same time, her spiritual journey was one of zeal and sorrow--that of a true mystic--but her rad
Simone Weil : a life by Simone Pétrement( Book )

8 editions published between 1973 and 1997 in French and English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simone Weil (1909-1943) occupe une place singulière dans l'histoire de la philosophie française contemporaine. Sans doute son acharnement à vivre en conformité absolue avec ses principes y est pour beaucoup, et l'image d'une femme atteinte de tuberculose se laissant mourir, à Londres, des privations qu'elle s'était imposées parce qu'elle ne pouvait plus combattre, illustre son engagement
