The Need for Roots


What do humans require to be truly nourished? Simone Weil, one of the foremost philosophers of the last century, envisaged us all as being bound by unconditional, eternal obligations towards every other human being. In ‘The Need for Roots’, her most famous work, she argued that our greatest need was to be rooted: in a community, a place, a shared past and collective future hopes. Written for the Free French movement while she was exiled in London during the Second World War, Weil’s visionary combination of philosophy, politics and mysticism is her answer to the question of what life without occupation – and oppression – might be.
