I admire Yourgrau's reasoned, sensible, down-to-earth approach to this much-studied young woman who died at 34, partly through voluntary starvation which made her too weak to fight the tuberculosis from which she suffered. This book takes a serious look at Weil's thought as well as the facts of her life, and succeeds totally in not reducing her to her symptoms, giving due consideration to the fact that they might not be symptoms at all, but rather her philosophy in action.

Oct 02, Charles Beauregard rated it liked it. She is a very interesting person. Dec 22, Lia rated it it was amazing. I did not think an introductory book would move me to tears. This is embarrassing. Apr 16, TerribleTamada rated it it was ok Shelves: history. Honestly, I didn't finish. I didn't find this biography particularly engaging nor did I feel I was getting a very good picture of Simone Weil's thought. About this product. Shipping and handling.
