The Power of Words
Penguin Great Ideas

There are certain words which possess, in themselves, when properly used, a virtue which illumines and lifts up towards the good. The philosopher and activist Simone Weil was one of the most courageous thinkers of the twentieth century. Here she writes, with honesty and moral clarity, about the manipulation of language by the powerful, the obligations of individuals to one another and the needs—for order, equality, liberty and truth—that make us human.
