Simone Weil: Home

A Gumberg Library research guide

Philosopher, theologian, teacher, rebel, social activist, and mystic, Simone Weil did not publish much during her lifetime, but, since her death in 1943 has become increasingly influential in many fields. Her writing and example have helped to shape the thinking of persons as various as Saint John XXIII and Pope Paul VI, former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and the existentialist writer Albert Camus.

This research guide is designed to connect the user with a wide range of different types of materials about this 20th century giant of thought and spirit.
