Freud and Weil

The journal Psychoanalytic Psychology has an article available ahead of print comparing Weil's thoughts on Eros and sublimation to those of Hans Leowald entitled: "On Sublimation and The Erotic Experience: Simone Weil and Hans Loewald"  by Aviad Heifetz.

Other works I have comparing Weil and Freud: 

Dilman, ─░lham. Love: Its Forms, Dimensions, and Paradoxes.  New York: St. Martin's Press, 1998.
———. "Simone Weil: Freedom with the Confines of Necessity." Chap. 13 In Free Will: An Historical and Philosophical Introduction, 206-20. London: Routledge, 1999.
