Simone Weil - philosopher, religious thinker, mystic, social/political activist - is notoriously difficult to categorize, since her life and writings challenge traditional academic boundaries. As many scholars have recognized, she set out few, if any, systematic theories, especially when it came to religious ideas. In this book, A. Rebecca Rozelle-Stone and Lucian Stone illuminate the ways in which Weil stands outside Western theological tradition by her use of paradox to resist the clamoring for greater degrees of certainty. Beyond a facile fallibilism, Simone Weil's ideas about the super-natural, love, Christianity, and spiritual action, and indeed, her seeming endorsement of a sort of atheism, detachment, foolishness, and passivity, begin to unravel old assumptions about what it is to encounter the divine.

A Rebecca Rozelle-stone

A. Rebecca Rozelle-Stone (Ph.D., Southern Illinois University Carbondale) is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Dr. Rozelle-Stones research interests lie in the intersections of ethical theory and religious thought, as well as in feminist philosophy, philosophy of education, and contemporary Continental thought.
She has co-edited and contributed to The Relevance of the Radical: Simone Weil 100 Years Later (Continuum, 2009).


Aside from Weil, Dr. Rozelle-Stone often engages with the thought of Hannah Arendt, Emmanuel Levinas, Paulo Freire, and Luce Irigaray, especially in investigating different ideas of interpersonal and civic relationships and how these lend themselves to or disable systems of oppression. In addition, she sometimes returns to the social/political thought of American philosophers like John Dewey and Jane Addams, which helped to constitute her early education in philosophy.
