About the Author

Simone Weil (1909-1943) was one of the twentieth century's most profound thinkers. In her early years, she was known for her brilliant and biting social commentary, and especially for the year she spent working in three Paris factories. After three profound religious experiences, she did not abandon her work on social problems, but also began to write truly original and penetrating religious and philosophical works that still bear on our times, writings that were only published after her death.

Reviews

The reprinting of English translations of Simone Weil's First and Last Notebooks, Selected Essays and Seventy Letters will be welcomed by the growing number of readers and scholars who are not at home in the original French and who wish to deepen their understanding of Weil's political philosophy and mystical theology.
