Shelves: , philosophy A strange, angry book that brings you into contact with a weird, wonderful soul -- that of a deeply intelligent mystic. This is a book written in from a philosophical mind fixed on eternity to address a temporal question: how should France rebuild itself following the end of World War II? The problem at hand, in her A strange, angry book that brings you into contact with a weird, wonderful soul -- that of a deeply intelligent mystic.

The problem at hand, in her diagnosis, is deracination -- the uprootedness of modern life. The process of thought behind everything here, though, is startling and fresh -- you feel as if you are in conversation with an original. Some ideas presented here: - Obligations trump rights. We have an obligation to respect one another because we are human. Society should be built on the basis of this respect. Further concatenation: we have obligations to meet the needs -- physical and spiritual -- of human beings.

Hence, the French Revolution failed because it tried to establish a secular form of society, with rights based in the finite human realm and thus unsupported. Without it, ennui would reign, which is just as crippling as fear is in totalitarian societies. Truth is knowledge about what you love. The lack of concern for truth in the modern world is one of the obstacles to civilization.

Greatness, instead, should center on sacrificial love: the unknown nurse working heroics in the army hospital, the master giving up his own life to his enemy so that his slaves will not be tortured, Christ undergoing His Passion.

She gives Christ at his arrest by Pilate as an example, for all those who loved Him abandoned Him to death. Instead, "the sum of the particular intentions of God is the universe itself. To show what is beneficial, what is obligatory, what is good -- that is the task of education. Education concerns itself with the motives for effective action.

For no action is ever carried out in the absence of motives capable of supplying the indispensable amount of energy for its execution. This is an interesting idea, but there is a bitter, personal hate in everything she writes about ancient Rome that makes it suspect. Her denunciation of the Hebrew part within the Christian tradition is also confusing, disturbing.

Weil was a Jew, though she did not practice Judaism. However, the brilliance of the book as a whole, the impracticality of so many suggestions aside, and the curious compassion you come away with for this odd genius so serious in laying out her ideas, make it a worthwhile read.

L’Enracinement de Simone Weil

Background[ edit ] 4 Carlton gardens, London. Weil was stationed here while she wrote Need for Roots. The book was written in the early months of Its initial form was a report which Weil had been asked to write for the Free French Resistance movement concerning the possibilities for effecting a regeneration in France once the Germans had been driven back. Her analysis was informed by a year-long stretch as a factory hand and by several periods working as an agricultural labourer. Part 1 is subdivided into fourteen sections, each dealing with a specific human need. Part 2 is subdivided into three sections, dealing with the concept of uprootedness in relation to urban life, to rural life and to nationhood.
