Book description
Questo libro si compone dei saggi: L'Iliade, poema della forza e Dio in Platone oltre che di quelli raccolti sotto il titolo "Induitions pré-chrétienne, scritti tutti tra il 1939 e il 1942, nel periodo in cui l'autore studiava la filosofia greca.
Tema centrale dell'opera è lo studio dell'autentico pensiero religioso greco, che è filtrato soltanto in parte nei testi pitagorici e in qualche scrittore e filosofo, fra cui Platone, con il quale l'autore rivela molte affinità.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415186625, Paperback)

In Intimations of Christianity Among the Ancient Greeks, Simone Weil discusses precursors to Christian religious ideas which can be found in ancient Greek mythology, literature and philosophy. She looks at evidence of "Christian" feelings in Greek literature, notably in Electra, Orestes, and Antigone, and in the Iliad, going on to examine God in Plato, and divine love in creation, as seen by the ancient Greeks.
