Simone Weil and Continental Philosophy
Author: A. Rebecca Rozelle-Stone
File Type: pdf
Simone Weil is an often-overlooked thinker whose insights could radically reshape contemporary discourses on religion, nature, art, ethics, work, politics, and education. This collection of essays situates Simone Weils thought alongside prominent Continental thinkers and their philosophical concerns to show the ways in which she belongs tobut also stands outsidesome of the major streams of Continental discourse, including phenomenology, ethics of embodied disposition and difference, and post-Marxian political thought. For the first time in a major work, intersections between the ideas of Weil and figures such as Nietzsche, Berdyaev, Foucault, Blanchot, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Chretien, Agamben, Fanon, and Ranciere are closely examined. The volume is authored by an international team of leading scholars in Weil studies and in contemporary Continental philosophy of religion more broadly. Simone Weil and Continental Philosophy is not only an unprecedented resource for Weil scholars who seek to read her in broader (and more current) philosophical terms, but also an important addition to the libraries of scholars and students of Continental philosophy and theology engaged in thinking about some of the most pressing questions of our time. **Review For the first time in English, here is a commentary which, like Maurice Blanchots, refuses the consolation of hagiography and reads Weil as she read her contemporaries with the unforgiving indifference to ideas which is the true sign of fidelity. (Simone Kotva, Research Fellow and Affiliated Lecturer, University of Cambridge) This volume does much more than place Weil in conversation with prominent continental philosophers. Thanks to Rozelle-Stones superb framing of the task, each author offers a timely intervention that tests the limits and possibilities of Weils complex thought. Students of Weil will certainly benefit, but so will (future) students of philosophy wherever their starting point. (Ian Clausen, Arthur J. Ennis Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities, Villanova University) Rozelle-Stone is a gifted Weil scholar who has put together a beautiful collection of essays linking Simone Weil to several generations of continental philosophers. The volumes contributors share a deep familiarity with thinkers and movements that belong in any serious conversation about Weil. They remedy a neglected area of scholarship and draw productive contrasts between Weil and her continental counterparts. (Ann Pirruccello, Professor of Philosophy at The University of San Diego) About the Author Rebecca Rozelle-Stone is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and the Director of Women and Gender Studies at the University of North Dakota.
