This paper is the reconstruction of Simone Weil's views on values and possibilities of their recognition. Those views can be summarized by a conviction that a discursive language is not able to express values because they escape from any definitions. What we consider as values are aspects (or social illusions or imitations) of the highest Good - Reality - God. Therefore the recognition of values needs reconstructing of a personality, throwing away social mental constructions and individual openness for Reality. Simone Weil identifies philosophy with mysticism, and theory of values - with reconstruction of personality, emotionality and life practice. As a consequence the recognition of values is not a theory but a personal relation with the highest Good.
