Review:

Dietz's book succeeds in providing a comprehensive overview of the full range of Simone Weil's social and political thought... (Ethics: An International Journal of Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy)

...Dietz has written a fine book on a most difficult subject. ^IBetween the Human and the Divine^R will introduce American readers to one of the most complex, troubled and troubling, luminous, path-breaking and neglected minds of our time. Dietz has taken an important step towards getting the measure of a thinker who measures our civilization. (The Review of Politics)

An excellent introduction to Weil. (Library Journal)

...among the finest of the few books in English devoted to an analysis of Weil's thought ....Dietz's discussion of these writings is invariably intelligent, clarifying, and insightful. It is a major accomplishment to have synthesized such a wide range of writings and brought them together as Dietz has done. (Philosophy and Phenomenological Research)

From Library Journal:

Dietz gives a lucid account of the development of Simone Weil's often ignored political theorizing. Approaching her subject with psychological insight, Dietz introduces and critically discusses elements in Weil's personal life, from childhood through her suicide during World War II, which would seem to contribute to the thinker's concepts of identity, community, and nationality. Weil's personal experiences found theoretical formality in her works, and Dietz gives particular attention to "The Love of God and Affliction," The Need for Roots, and The Iliad or the Poem of Force . An excellent introduction to Weil. Francisca Goldsmith, Golden Gate Univ. Lib., San Francisco
