my puropose is to analyze the peculiar thinking of weil, according to the categories of reasoning, as a choice to avoid violence. in his definition of man, weil recovers the notion of realization, with which man is redefined in terms of what he must be and not merely for what he is. thereto, man is interpreted as formed by a political and social dimension. through language, men is capable of projecting and skipping his present reality towards the other temporal dimensions, since it is only there where he can express what he has not yet become and what he is not anymore, his own history. man is violent because he is not essentially reason. on this basis, the aim of philosophical reflection is to turn him, reasonably, into a less violent person.
