About the book:

This volume, first published in English in 1987 makes available an important part of Weils early writings. Although primarily known as a religious thinker, she devoted enormous energy in her formative years to her work as a political activist and as a philosopher/teacher. This book reveals these other sides of Weil and demonstrates the lines of continuity underlying her whole thought.

Written between 1929 and 1941 the book covers a crucial and transitional period in Weils life. Taken together they represent invaluable primary source material on the evolution of Weils life and on her chosen method of abstracting elements from her personal experience and transmuting that experience into considered thought. Even when highly theoretical, her writing was always concerned with the application of her intelligence to concrete problems of human existence.
