Why Study Simone Weil with Philip Goodchild
From Simon Barnett
Prof. Philip Goodchild introduces the thought of Simone Weil (1909-1943) who has been described as a philosopher, a religious thinker, a mystic, and linked with any number of philosophers from Plato to Marx. He argues that such labels miss a core element of her thought: we should not focus on abstractions but pay attention to the particular: the real person that is before us.
