Beschreibung

Simone Weil (1909-1943) was a defining figure of the 20th century; a philosopher, Christian, resistance fighter, anarchist, feminist, labor activist and teacher, described by Albert Camus as "the only great spirit of your time." In 1941 Weil was introduced to Father Joseph-Marie Perrin, a Dominican priest whose friendship became a key influence on her life. When Weil asked Perrin for work as a field hand he sent her to Gustave Thibon, a farmer and Christian philosopher. From 1941-2 Weil stayed with the Thibon family, working in the fields and writing the notebooks which became Gravity and Grace and other posthumous works. Perrin and Thibon met Weil at a time when her spiritual life and creative genius were at their height. During the short but deep period of their acquaintance with her, they came to know her as she actually was. First published in 1953 and now introduced by J. P. Little, this unique portrait depicts Weil through the eyes of her friends, not as a strange and unaccountable genius, but as an ardent and human person in search of truth and knowledge.

Pressestimmen

'I am going to try to speak of Simone Weil herself, disregarding the immense halo of commentaries, discussions and legends which surround her. For a moment I am going to forget even her writings in order to call back to my life that unknown being who, as it were, dropped from the sky and for a brief space shared my existence.' - Gustave Thibon 'A book that helped to bring a whole generation of Simone Weil scholars into existence.' - Richard H. Bell, Wooster College 'Offers measured and considered responses to Simone Weil both personally and intellectually. Thibon's response to Weil's attack on the Catholic Church as a social organisation is the profoundest I have read. Perrin and Thibon are seminal figures, given their personal stature and relationships with Simone Weil, and students of her work will want to read what they have to say.' - Professor D Z Phillips, University of Swansea
