Abstract

In The Subversive Simone Weil: A Life in Five Ideas, Robert Zaretsky offers a new biography of the influential French thinker through exploring five key concepts within her body of work. Zaretsky’s thematic study will inspire readers to find resistance in the power of paying deep attention, just as Weil passionately and convincingly argued, writes Fouad Mami. The Subversive Simone Weil: A Life in Five Ideas. Robert Zaretsky. University of Chicago Press. 2021.
