While Gravity and Grace (French: La Pesanteur et la grâce) is one of the books most associated with Simone Weil, the work was not one she wrote to be published as a book. Rather, the work consists of various passages selected from Weil's notebooks and arranged topically by Gustave Thibon, who knew and befriended her. Weil had in fact given to Thibon some of her notebooks, written before May 1942, but not with any idea or request to publish them. On the Abolition of All Political Parties, Simon Leys trans.

Gravity and Grace was the first ever publication by the remarkable thinker and activist, Simone Weil. In it Gustave Thibon, the farmer to whom she had entrusted her tebooks before her untimely death, compiled in one remarkable volume a compendium of her writings that have become a source of spiritual guidance and wisdom for countless individuals. Also previously untranslated is Gustave Thibon's postscript of 1990, which reminds us how privileged we are to be able to read a work which offers each reader such 'light for the spirit and urishment for the soul'. This is a book that one with a serious interest in the spiritual life can afford to be without.

Gravity and Grace shows Weil's religious thoughts and ideas, drawn from many sources - Christian, Jewish, Indian, Greek and Hindu - and focusing on suffering and redemption.
  • I went through a philosophy heavy rhetoric program at UC Berkeley and never once heard Simone Weil's name. I discovered her through Stanford's Entitled Opinions podcast (which is excellent). I'm glad I did.

    This seems to be the book most people recommend to start with. It's pretty quick and shouldn't be too hard a read for most folks. I'd probably describe the style as aphoristic. You can pick different chapters to skip about in without losing much of an argument's thread. That said, you should totally read the whole thing.

    Weil's thought is complex, mystical, and challenging. This is a book that should probably be read a couple of times before any strong opinions are formed, so I'll just say this: I found her ideas to be very compelling, but I bristled a bit at her veneration of suffering.

    I can't wait to read more of her work.

  • I bought this book many months ago and read portions of it without actually thinking critically of her views. It was only when I embarked on a water fast that I used this book as a daily meditation. I admire Simone Weil's unique intelligence, insight, and sensitivity to many of the fundamental topics of affliction, love, politics, etc. With acquired knowledge of physics, politics, history, philosophy and literature, Weil delivers poetic descriptions of topical subjects, although elusive at times there are sections that glow with profundity. I agree with Albert Camus that Simone Weil was one of the most luminous intelligence of the 20th century.

  • 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 like a series of thoughts--in some cases it seems Weil is trying to reason out a complex concept for herself in much the same way an artist might doodle or a scientist might scribble down formulas. I will admit there were parts of this book that were maddeningly confusing. However these were balanced with nuggets that I found to be entirely fresh and hopeful: "God's love for us is not the reason for which we should love him. God's love for us is the reason for us to love ourselves. How could we love ourselves without this motive?"

    I read "Gravity and Grace" from beginning to end, but it doesn't have to be consumed this way. In fact I will probably come back to this material repeatedly because there are many deep thoughts here that just need to be chewed over in that way. Since it is organized by topic you can pretty much dive into it wherever you like. I say go into this book with an open mind and a sufficient appetite for spiritual discovery.

  • Weil is one of the most challenging Christian voices of the modern period. It is impossible to return from the sharp blade of any of her aphorisms without shedding a little blood.

  • Simone Weil was an Idealist philosopher who experienced both WW1 and WW2. I bought this book to see how her philosophy might have affected her view of war, and vice a versa.
    It is definitely an interesting read. Simone Weil seems to compare Gravity with materialism, and Grace with spirituality, and her interpretation of the effect they have on each other.

  • Simone Weil is an Apostle for our time.
    We are submerged in a sea of individualism, narcissism, materialism and self obsession.
    We are even taking selfies.
    Simone identifies with the outsider and finds her happiness in obligation to others,
    A great message for Christmas.

  • The book is excellent!

  • Simone Weil was an intellectual and mystic. Gravity and Grace, I gave three stars, in large part, because much of what she says is beyond my capacity, intellectual (and/or spiritual). The introduction explains Weil's "philosophy" and helps in understanding the book. Weil was a complicated and wonderful person. She was from a Jewish background and, according to her, was visited by Jesus in an experiential and profound way. She prayed the "Our Father," and often experienced mystical experiences --the presence of God. She was both a lover and critic of the Catholic Church. The little I do understand shows that she was a profound thinker. Waiting for God, another book with collections of writings by her is more understandable. For those with a mystical, theological bent the book is probably worth reading. I will keep it and revisit it from time to time, using it to try and glean some of her insights in the future. Hopefully, as I grow I will be able to appreciate some of her more piercing insights.
