We must simply expose ourselves to the personality of a woman of genius, of a kind of genius akin to that of the saints.T.S. Eliot
The best spiritual writer of this century.André Gide
What makes this book worth reading - and it is extremely readable - is the clarity and force of the style and the sincerity of the emotions which led Simone Weil to reflect on political philosophy ... It is a book full of interest and insight, penetrating observations and stimulating suggestions with, even in its most pessimistic passages, a humane faith and sincerity that reinforce the reader's confidence in the possibility of a humanistic, rational and liberal order of society.The Times Literary Supplement
