Rozelle-Stone (Univ. of North Dakota) set out to address a gap in the scholarship regarding Simone Weil (1909–43), and she succeeds admirably. The work of both well-known scholars and rising stars, the 12 essays in this remarkable volume consider Weil’s thought alongside Continental philosophy. Readers will appreciate the ways in which Weil is put in conversation with some of the 20th-century’s key thinkers—Blanchot, Agamben, Merlau-Ponty, et al. Interest in Weil’s thought has increased in recent years, and this volume will be warmly welcomed not only by Weil scholars but also by those interested in Continental philosophy, philosophy of religion, political theory, ethics, and religious studies.
Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.
