About The Book
“Anyone interested in Simone Weil will want, and need, to read this superb collection.” — Diogenes Allen, Princeton Theological Seminary “These essays — some written by leading specialists in Simone Weil’s thought, others by prominent theologians and philosophers of religion — are especially valuable not only for elucidating Weil’s reading of Plato but also for showing what one or another form of Christian Platonism can mean for us today.” — James A. Wiseman, O.S.B., Catholic University of America
“This remarkable and penetrating collection of essays on Simone Weil’s religious philosophy illumines the living intersection between serious metaphysics and ethics. The authors carefully examine this relation that much post-modern reflection has until now only skimmed, but that Weil herself managed to embrace with breathtaking intellectual discipline and self-giving. The book is a bracing testimony to the deep moral consequences of classical ontology and its challenging Christian reorientation.” — The Rev. Dr. Ephraim Radner, Ascension Episcopal Church, Pueblo, Colorado
In this book a group of renowned international scholars seek to discern the ways in which Simone Weil was indebted to Plato, and how her provocative readings of his work offer challenges to contemporary philosophy, theology, and spirituality. This is the first book in twenty years to systematically investigate Weil’s Christian Platonism.
