As Coles writes, this is a college paper that he later developed. HIs ethical questions about Weil's anti-Semitism are well grounded and initiate an important discussion. However, he does not quite grasp mysticism, and that is a glaring weakness in his critique. I admire Cole's writing, but this book is not very helpful in understanding her work.
