Gravity and Grace was the first ever publication by the remarkable thinker and activist, Simone Weil. In it Gustave Thibon, the farmer to whom she had entrusted her notebooks before her untimely death, compiled in one remarkable volume a compendium of her writings that have become a source of spiritual guidance and wisdom for countless individuals. On the fiftieth anniversary of the first English edition - by Routledge & Kegan Paul in 1952 - this Routledge Classics edition offers English readers the complete text of this landmark work for the first time ever, by incorporating a specially commissioned translation of the controversial chapter on Israel. Also previously untranslated is Gustave Thibon's postscript of 1990, which reminds us how privileged we are to be able to read a work which offers each reader such 'light for the spirit and nourishment for the soul'. This is a book that no one with a serious interest in the spiritual life can afford to be without.… (mehr)

> Ceux qui aiment la fulgurance des citations qui contiennent tout un monde, ceux dont une seule phrase ou un court passage, retenu pour sa beauté ou sa clairvoyance, peut occuper l'esprit longtemps, bref tous ceux qui pratiquent plus volontiers la méditation que la spéculation, vont à coup sûr adorer La Pesanteur et la Grâce.
Recueil des pensées les plus intimes d'un philosophe au parcours singulier qui renonça à sa condition bourgeoise pour travailler à l'usine et qui, d'origine juive, finit par se rapprocher du christianisme, cet ouvrage constitue une véritable initiation à l'oeuvre de Simone Weil. Sous une trentaine de rubriques se retrouvent les thèmes principaux de sa réflexion : effacement, acceptation du vide, mystique du travail... Mue par le constant désir d'abolir en elle le moi, Simone Weil paraît reformuler sans cesse tout au long de ces pages une seule et cruciale question, celle du salut : comment peut-on échapper à ce qui en nous ressemble à de la pesanteur ? --Paul Klein (Amazon.fr)

From the introduction written by Simone Weil’s confidante Gustave Thibon, it is clear that understanding Weil’s philosophy will be tiring work, as many of her thoughts are obscure to me and necessitate serious contemplation. Her philosophy is not, I think, main stream any religion - Thibon concedes she was neither a Catholic nor an orthodox Christian either. However she may have hero-worshipped Jesus Christ, living, as she did, by self effacing notions and dieing young. She is portrayed as someone who never stopped living according to her beliefs and it has been suggested (by BBC Radio 4 Great Lives program) that her beliefs may have contributed to her untimely death. As such perhaps her views should be read with caution. ( )

These words seem to encapsulate what Weil means by "grace": "May the eternal life give, not a reason for living and working, but a sense of completeness which makes the search for any such reason unnecessary." (222) This complex work focuses its exploration on gravity (search and striving, delusions of faith, attachments to things seen and unseen, the weight of existence) which is fundamentally what it means to be human. It requires a sustained reading because in addition to being philosophical, its theology is largely meditative, almost intuitive. And so I'll have to read it again when I won't have to stop in the middle of things so frequently. Weil's prose is very controlled, elusive, and sometimes completely obscure (I have not read the original French)-- and for those very reasons, I was drawn to it. She articulates the sanctity of the divine, and this requires a language which follows the very practice Weil advocates over and over--a humility before the absolute, the human striving towards nothingness. It is wise without being preachy. It is a book which will require another reading when there are fewer distractions in my life and more mental space to reflect upon it. ( )
