  • Mort. but in general i would say that understanding the concepts of attention, void and ego hold the key to understanding weil. the very dumbed down version is our ego gets in the way of us seeing people or events how they really are (giving just attention). as the stanford edu entry puts it:the void by definition is empty (vide)?of idols, futural self-projections, consolations that compensate un-thinking, and attachments of collective and personal prestige.

  • Mort. Gravity and Grace is a very good place to start. for background reading to make it easier to understand Weil i reccomend Iris Murdoch's The Sovereignty of Good. her moral philosophy is basically Weil's but translated into a more analytic philosophy style and much more understandable. Murdoch isnt a mystic like Weil. i also reccomend any of the essays by Silvia Panizza, who translated an unfinished play of Weils with one of my lecturers, Philip Wilson
