Mystic, philosopher, and activist Simone Weil (1909-1943) was a fascinating thinker and activist whose influence only grows as the years go by. A convert from Judaism to Christianity her ideas about God’s absence and the separation of humans have startling correspondences with Gnosticism and Kabbalah while staying unique. Her life story intersects with some of the biggest events and movements of the first half of the 20th century and her mysterious death is still debated.
To talk about Simone we have the returning champions, Nina Power and Emmalea Russo (both are poets/philosophers/professors and more!) to take us through her thought.
