French mystic, social philosopher and religious apologist who completed many brilliant studies in literature, philosophy and logic. She also developed a distinctive philosophy of her own. In 1936, she took part in the Spanish civil war and joined the resistance, participating in a protest fast. Raised as a Jewish intellectual and agnostic, she was always an original thinker, and she made an impact on her culture in many areas.

Weil was admitted to a sanatorium for treatment of tuberculosis where she died on 24 August 1943, Ashford, Kent, England of a combination of the lung disease and self-imposed starvation. Her death was ruled a suicide by starvation as she believed that giving up food was a sacrifice she could make for her suffering compatriots under the Nazi regime.
