1. Tingens lydnad och människans väntan : Nödvändighet, nåd, handling och tänkande i Simone Weils filosofiKandidat-uppsats, Södertörns högskola/Filosofi

If we picture the dawn of Western civilization as an early development of scientific thinking, built on a gradual and continuous growth of knowledge, we will easily go astray as we try to discover the Greek origins of philosophy.
