Augusto Del Noce and Massimo Cacciari were the first scholars in Italy to present Simone Weil as a gnostic. Aspects of Weil’s thought are certainly gnostic: the acute sense of human existence as misery and fallenness; the conception of God as pure, and absolutely transcendent, Good; her critique of the omnipotent Old Testament God; and the important role of knowledge in salvation. However, missing from her writings is the cosmic paranoia felt by the gnostic who withdrawals from the world. That’s the aspect she tried to affect.
