Simone Weil: A Modern Pilgrimage

Robert Coles, Author Addison Wesley Publishing Company $10.66 (0p) ISBN 978-0-201-07964-7
Coles, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Harvard psychiatry professor, here examines Weil's radical sociopolitical views, astringent moral philosophy and mystical Christianity. ``A new study of this brilliant, perplexing and `unnerving' French thinker and moral heroine, who died in 1943 at age 34, is certainly called for, and this perceptive one does her justice,'' maintained PW.
