The Metaphysics in the Development of Will in Simone Weil

Existence is conceiving one´s entire life
before one´s self and directing it all
in a sense determined by the
will and with one´s labor1.

In this paper, I intend to show the way in which Simone Weil’s methodology of decision is built and how it unfolds in 3 wider steps:
A) The weigh and measure of the values these constructions give way to.
B)  The way these are woven into practical decision.
C) How the limits of each one, opens a door to the next step with the consequent aggrandizement of TRUTH.

Topic: ETHICAL PRAXIS BETWEEN PHILOSOPHY AND EXISTENCE

Why did the civil society after the disquiet flurry of revolution dissolve? What can Søren Kierkegaard’s essays Two Ages and Works of Love tell us about the acts of revolution? How can the experiences of ethical praxis established by V. Havel and J. Patočka teach us? How can we encourage the praxis of responsible citizenship? What kind of dissent is possible and needed?
