A distinguished discussion of Weil's views on social philosophy, science, ethics, and religion.

The work of Simone Weil has not garnered the attention it deserves in the Anglo-American tradition. In this book, Rhees, the noted thinker trained by Wittgenstein, provides the most sustained critique to date of Weil's views on science and religion. In this decidedly Wittgensteinian spin on the philosophy of religion, Rhees' observations on the major themes in Weil's work--social philosophy, science, ethics, and religion--are presented. The book shows how Rhees wrestled with difficulties he found in the work of Weil, someone he held in the highest regard.

"In the field of Weil studies this book is a 'gold mine.'" -- Richard H. Bell, author of Simone Weil: The Way of Justice as Compassion

"Weil was a highly original thinker and Discussions of Simone Weil helps bring out that originality. Rhees also makes a contribution to the philosophy of religion, for here we get to see how a genuine Wittgensteinian approach might work in tackling religious questions." -- Eric O. Springsted, coauthor of Spirit, Nature, and Community: Issues in the Thought of Simone Weil
