Comments L'ombra e la grazia

  1. 10 metaphors Weil uses that I want to remember 1 the chlorophyll metaphor p 47 God, as the source of humankind s moral energy, is likened by Weil to sunlight she then expresses a longing for a chlorophyll that would enable her to feed directly on this sunlight.2 the screen metaphor p 78 Harkening back to the myth of Semele, Weil compares suffering to a screen standing between humankind and God If this screen did not exist, Weil argues, direct exposure to God s radiance would cause humankind to i [...]


  2. The great sorrow of human life is knowing that to look and to eat are two different operations Love is not consolation It is light Absolutely unmixed attention is prayer Creation as god s distance, etc In my judgment Weil was one of the most fascinating people to ever live We re all just playing games by comparison.


  3. A method of purification to pray to God, not only in secret as faras men are concerned, but with the thought that God does notexist p.20 Libro sublime, complejo y peligroso si se lo agarra en momentos de trasnoche En sus puntos m s altos pega como Bataille, ambos comparten el tono m stico po tico y radical particularmente la obsesi n con la comuni n y la distancia soberan a En sus fuentes Weil va m s lejos Plat n, los Upanishads, el Tao Te King M s lejos es m s tierna y m s brutal cuando quiere [...]


  4. I love Simone Weil for a number of reasons she is a woman and she is a philosopher who had both her mind and intuition fully active and greatly working Some idiots think that philosophy is only for men and men only have the capacity for critical thinking Simone Weil proves them wrong Others think that to be philosophically minded is to be at odds with faith Wasn t it Martin Luther who called reason the whore of Babylon What an idiot She proves him wrong too Reason is a tool that the Lord created [...]


  5. There is no way to review this book without coming off as if you were too young to have read it.


  6. Simone Weil is mentioned several times in the correspondence of Thomas Merton and Czeslaw Milosz compiled in the book Striving Towards Being The favorable words of these admired authors made me curious to explore Weil s work I started with Gravity and Grace For those also new to Weil s work I should point out this book is not a continuous narrative it is a compilation of writings from the notebooks she entrusted to her friend Gustave Thibon before her death in 1943 For this reason the book reads [...]


  7. I must love being nothing How horrible it would be if I were something I must love my nothingness, love being a nothingness 111.Like that Emily Dickinson poem Or that M m album


  8. I ve struggled to find the right entry point to Simone Weil, having dipped into various collections of her essays and reflections I reached Gravity and Grace because Susan Sontag mentioned it in an essay on filmmaker Robert Bresson For me, at least, this was by far the best approach GG belongs in the genre of aphoristic essays it includes several dozen pieces extracted from Weil s notebooks entrusted to a Catholic priest she d met in France during the period when she was gravitating to Christian [...]


  9. Sometimes Weil seems awfully austere However, her work is full of soul rearranging gems like this Justice To be ever ready to admit that another person is something quite different from what we read when he is there or when we think about him Or rather, to read in him that he is certainly something different, perhaps something completely different from what we read in him.Every being cries out silently to be read differently.


  10. Simone Weil, like her richly allusive fragments, remains difficult to characterize She veered between anarchist and traditionalist, mystic and philosopher She supported the Spanish leftists against Franco s dictatorship but never fired her weapon She revered the Catholic church and many of its mystics though she found the canonization of Constantine scandalous , even as she combined the best insights of the Catholic and Protestant traditions and a great deal from Buddhism, Hinduism, Daoism, and [...]


  11. I tikro m s tik jimas ar netik jimas b na ir taip, tik pa velkit m s t l ateist ir suprasit apie k a yra vertingi tiek, kiek yra autenti ki, nutol nuo masi kanono.Daugiau ne inau, k ir pridurti tai yra viena viena t knyg , nors ir ra yt neknygi kai, t.y sau, be tikslo spausdintis, kuri klodai, jauti tai, dosniau atsiveria tau br stant, tod l, manau, skaitysiu j po 10 ar 20 met Visai kaip geras pranc zi kas vynas, kuris palyt tas laiko tik ger ja iauriai domios, autenti kos mintys, ir tai sako pr [...]


  12. We should be indifferent to good and evil, but, when we are indifferent, that is to say when we project the light of our attention equally on both, the good gains the day This phenomenon comes about automatically There lies the essential grace And it is the definition, the criterion of good.A divine inspiration operates infallibly, irresistibly, if we do not turn away our attention, if we do not refuse it There is not a choice to be made in its favor, it is enough not to refuse to recognize that [...]


  13. I both wholly agree and disagree with Weil at any given moment, which is perhaps the reception she deserves, given her stance on the necessity of contradiction as the litmus for truth reality with which I entirely agree, except, I guess, for when I don t A pithy, dense read I predict I will return to it occasionally, and find my interpretations changed, and myself changed again because of this.


  14. Not much can be said as a review of a book like this one It is itself the sum total of what is possible to say at all Though it s funny that in some of her opinions she is dead wrong, and still it doesn t get in the way.


  15. Deserves ten out of five stars No, all of the stars in the universe This medium cannot express its greatness.


  16. The work of art has an author and yet, when it is perfect, it has something which is essentially anonymous about it It imitates the anonymity of divine art In the same way the beauty of the world proves there to be a God who is personal and impersonal at the same time and is neither the one nor the other separately Although I had already encountered most of this in the Weil anthology I read some months ago, it was a pleasure to read this unfiltered, free version of her earliest work Such a power [...]


  17. Her insights are often lovely Unfortunately I m not one for this kind of Platonic mysticism Nevertheless some of her reflections on friendship, work, and social change are worthwhile.I wish she hadn t hated Aristotle so much


  18. Dei muito tempo a perceber que escrever uma coisa separada do corpo N o se escreve com as m os, acabam por ser o meio para um fim muito maior do que se prev.Fiquei com a sensa o agridoce de s ro ar a superf cie em rela o a demasiadas coisas, mas acho que acaba por n o ser mau Parece que Simone Weil n o escreveu isto para ningu m Parece que foi guiada por uma for a superior que a escolheu para entender tudo acerca de tudo E n s, comuns mortais, que s sabemos tudo acerca de muito pouco, mas sabemo [...]


  19. Pauvre Simone, je pense que je suis pas la hauteur de lire son livre J ai aim certaines parties, d pendant de mon humeur, mais j ai pas t capable de passer par dessus l criture hachur e, et les r f rences constantes Dieu, au fait qu il faut dont souffrir dans la vie et qu on est rien qu une r flexion de Dieu Moi, Dieu, en tout cas Je suis quand m me contente de l avoir lu dans le cadre de mon cours, a me fait sortir de mes horizons litt raires habituels.


  20. One of the best philosophy theology aesthetics books I ve ever read I discovered this book completely by accident, through an epigraph in a book of poems Weil s ideas about art literature, power, social dynamics, history, and theology are grossly underrated, under taught, and important, especially in today s various climates social, aesthetic, and political included They are cosmic and crystalline.


  21. Fantastic philosopher Jew turned Christiandied in the Holocaust anyway All the natural movements of the soul are controlled by laws analogous to those of physical gravity Grace is the only exception.





  22. Two stars It was OK This collection of her thinking reads rather like a religious text in that it is organized by chapters with subject titles and within chapters, short strings of thought are grouped together and separated from others by a little extra white space in between Reminds me of how verses are presented in the Bible, except, here without numbers spaces instead The declarations made in each of these verses often have no substantial development, no explanation, and rarely an example to [...]


  23. Comecei a ler Simone Weil um pouco desavisado Indica es de que o livro oferecia alguma esp cie de alimento espiritual me levaram a crer que encontraria aqui palavras reconfortantes ou inspiradoras Pelo contr rio Esqueci que o espiritual necessariamente sofrido, e que a noite escura uma esta o obrigat ria Simone Weil brutal Sua escrita severa e rigorosa Vejo nesse livro uma contraparte crist dos aforismos de Z rau, de Kafka Ela escreve frases como Quando estou em qualquer lugar, perturbo o sil nc [...]


  24. Caveats this book is difficult, metaphysical, mystical, possibly boring, without narrative or argumentative development.I think of Gravity and Grace as a book about reading experience The lines play with time and the rhythm of your thoughts so that you are forced to slow pace and enter the dark spiritual room of the pages to think alongside Weil about God, existence, the Divine, the Self the Ego , reality, in spare but beautiful sentences beautiful in the way that pebbles in a stream are Kind of [...]



  25. Gli uomini ci debbono quel che noi immaginiamo ci daranno Rimetter loro questo debito.Accettare che essi siano diversi dalle creature della nostra immaginazione, vuol dire imitare la rinuncia di Dio Anch io sono altra da quella che m immagino essere Saperlo il perdono vilt ricercare nelle persone che si amano o voler dar loro un conforto diverso da quello che ci danno le opere d arte, che ci aiutano semplicemente esistendo Amare, essere amato, non fa che rendere reciprocamente pi concreta questa [...]


  26. Took me a bit of a while with this one, but there was such a wealth of material contained in these pages that I don t think it s one to be read quickly SO refreshing to read some philosophy by a woman instead of constant western white men Definitely want to read of Weil s work in the future.
