Lecture Series: The Life & Legacy of Simone Weil
Starting January 7, the Library, the Topical Seminars group, and the Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild are hosting a series of 11 lectures by University of Washington law professor and Lewes resident Ronald Collins.
The lectures explore the life and work of Simone Weil (1909-1943), who Albert Camus tagged as “the only great spirit of our times.” The lectures, replete with informed and engaged discussion, are designed to explain and examine the thinking – political, pedagogical, philosophical, psychological, and spiritual – of Simone Weil, along with some occasional and related discussion of the life and philosophy of Camus.
On January 28 Eric Springsted, PhD will be the guest lecturer. He is the former President of the American Weil Society, author of four works on Simone Weil, and one of the foremost Weil scholars in the world.
Registration is required. To sign up, call the Library at 302-645-2733 or stop by the Circulation Desk.
