Simone Weil was one of the foremost thinkers of the twentieth century- a philosopher, theologian, critic, sociologist and political activist. This anthology spans the wide range of her thought, and includes an extract from her best-known work The Need for Roots ,exploring the ways in which modern society fails the human soul; her thoughts on the misuse of language by those in power; and the essay Human Personality ,a late, beautiful reflection on the rights and responsibilities of every individual. All are marked by the unique combination of literary eloquence and moral perspicacity that characterised Weil's ideas and inspired a generation of thinkers and writers both in and outside her native France.
