Emily King on Weil’s Notebooks

Emily King

Recently, Emily King presented at a conference organized by the Association pour l’Étude de la Pensée de Simone Weil to mark the 80th anniversary of the death of a philosopher who has left behind an incredible legacy. Her paper, “L’écriture comme travail,” which will be published in the Cahiers Simone Weil, considers the extent to which we may read Weil’s cryptic notebooks not as mere drafts, but as a form of work. Those present included noted Weil scholars Robert Chenavier and Emmanuel Gabellieri.
