  1. Making the World My Body: Simone Weil and Somatic Practice.Ann Pirruccello - 2002 - Philosophy East and West 52 (4):479-497.
    : French philosopher Simone Weil (1909-1943) was convinced that bodily or somatic practices could play a significant role in human moral and religious development. Weil believed that such development hinges on how the world is read (lecture) or interpreted, and somatic practices play a key role in shifting rom more to less egocentric readings. While she did not live to complete her research on somatic practice, it is fruitful to follow out the lines of her program. Comparing her considerations with (...)

  2. “Gravity” in the Thought of Simone Weil.Ann Pirruccello - 1997 - Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 57 (1):73-93.
    Simone Weil's concept of gravity has received attention from philosophers and interested readers at least since the 1947 publication of La Pésanteur et la grâce. "Gravity" is a key concept in Weil's moral and spiritual psychology, and despite the attention Weil's writings have received, there is ample need for a study that draws together Weil's scattered references to gravity and demonstrates their cohesion. This article develops a treatment of gravity that seeks to clarify one of the major scientific analogies Weil (...)

    Reductionism, Brain Imaging, and Social Identity Commentary on “Biological Indeterminacy”.Ann Pirruccello - 2012 - Science and Engineering Ethics 18 (3):453-456.
    The practice of reductionism in science and philosophy includes attempts to essentialize human persons, which can lead to serious social problems. Reductionism is not necessary, as comparative philosophers and alternative-thinking scientists have shown.

    De-Centering the Individualist Imaginary: Responding to Rosemont's Against Individualism.Ann Pirruccello - 2019 - Philosophy East and West 69 (1):40-51.
    There's Crito, my contemporary and fellow demesman, the father of Critobulus. … [T]hen there's Lysanias of Sphettus, father of Aeschines. … [N]ext, there's Epigenes' father, Antiphon of Cephisus here … and there is Adeimantus, the son of Ariston, whose brother is Plato. …In his recent book, Against Individualism, Henry Rosemont takes up the modern notion of the free, autonomous individual and urges his readers to reconsider the central role it has played in moral and political thought.1 Arguing with a clear (...)

    Philosophy in the ten Directions: Global Sensibility and the Imaginary.Ann Pirruccello - 2008 - Philosophy East and West 58 (3):pp. 301-317.
    The emerging contours of global philosophy are being shaped by worldwide exchanges, diverse methods and approaches, the diminution of cultural hegemony, and expanded access to philosophical discussion. But globally intentioned scholars whose formative intellectual preparation is Anglo-European may be unaware of the role played by the imaginary in suppressing ideas and values that differ from one's root tradition. This essay uses a model of the Western philosophical imaginary taken from French researcher Michèle Le Doeuff, and draws connections between Le Doeuff's (...)
