It’s a silly little book, which should be in … two hundred grams, perhaps, no more, 184 pages and about life.Unbelievable … Two hundred grams with me from time to time, which always emerge from a shelf where I often forget.
My little black irony forbade me to miss a work of philosophical conversation
Kindly tell you much right now, it’s beautiful, it’s smart, but it is rather heavy. And that’s probably why I manage to forget the existence as long as I do not feel the need to read it.
Rilke on love: “Two Solitudes protecting, complementing, limited, and bowing in front of one another” …Well, that’s the idea … And reflection, the way that we seek to accomplish thus requires this kind of food. The book is never essential, indispensable, but it burns your hands, push you and confront you. It is a form of trial,
This is the philosophy, but tempered by the transient beauties of writing that offer pleasant breaths
What else to say … The book is beyond the vanity to believe that philosophy is nothing but a path or a means, it must necessarily give way to reality. I do not know if I recommend it, let’s say I recommend it for all purposes useless. If, in such distraction, you hesitate between that and the biography of Dalida, go ahead, so take the second.
Customer Reviews
Rilke found the words” that it was necessary to say that love we need, and we are only able so rarely: “Two Solitudes protecting, complementing, limited, and tilting the” s” one before the other” ‘… This rings true beauty.The” n” love is not the opposite of loneliness: it” s shared loneliness, inhabited, illuminated – and sometimes overshadowed – by the solitude of the other”.
Andre Comte-Sponville is a philosopher who demonstrates in these three interviews (From L? Side of despair, violence and tenderness, and L? Effort To Live) that philosophy is lived in everyday life. And that? Philosophical act n? Is not a simple reflection for everyone, but should be reflected in our daily actions, “if n? Anyone can and should be a philosopher, more or less right or wrong, instead of the philosopher is that exactly n? anyone. C? Is where the knot? Universal and loneliness. ” The n? Is no discredit philosophy but to recognize his vocation. Free thinking, prejudice or weight of a priori beliefs, and social standards, always in search? a real truth, if it can resort to complex modes of reasoning, is an exercise, a practice to rediscover the simplicity of life. “You know those people who prefer their Hi-Fi music … j? also know some who prefer the philosophy to life, and I think against a similar-meaning. ” The simplicity of words, that? of accuracy? employment and concerns of rigor makes clear, while echoing the “naivete n? is a under that for naïve “Besnier JM (1993), makes this little book, a text by quidam affordable we are. The beauty and? Apparent lightness of style does nothing to mask the depth of the look,? Presentation of reality, the? Serene acceptance of human finitude. On the question of morality, I let each meditate for himself Likewise, the Count-About Sponville (p134): “the? love is better, which makes fun of morality. But we love so little, so bad … We don? Have need of moral fault? Love, certainly, c? Is also why we need so much. ” ? Besnier JM: History of modern philosophy and comptemporaine, Works and Figures, Paris: Editions Grasset, 1993
