By Cyrille Javary

Cyrille Javary, dont on connaît par ses nombreuses guides le expertise d'initiateur à l. a. tradition chinoise, nous livre ici une synthèse à los angeles fois profonde et ludique des dynamiques à l'oeuvre dans le « penser » chinois. Ce n'est pas l'essence des êtres et des choses qui est centrale dans cette conception du monde, mais le changement incessant, los angeles dialectique féconde entre Yin et Yang, le subtil balancement entre Terre et Ciel. De ces entre-deux omniprésents jaillit un rapport particulier à l'espace et au temps, une imaginative and prescient originale de los angeles civilisation, de los angeles spiritualité et de l. a. politique. Cyrille Javary nourrit son propos de mille anecdotes du quotidien, mais aussi de los angeles grande Histoire de l. a. Chine, pour nous faire découvrir de l'intérieur cette civilisation à los angeles fois vintage et ultra-moderne.
