Andar, una filosofía by Frédéric Gros

By Frédéric Gros


Título unique: Marcher, une philosophie

Caminar es mucho más que poner un pie delante del otro. ¿Y si solo se pudiera pensar bien a través de los pies?

«Un admirable libro que entusiasmará incluso a los sedentarios empedernidos.»
Le Monde des Livres

Andar no exige ni aprendizaje, ni técnica, ni fabric ni dinero. Sólo requiere de un cuerpo, de espacio y de tiempo. Cada día son más los aficionados a caminar, y todos ellos obtienen los beneficios de esa propensión: sosiego, comunión con l. a. naturaleza, plenitud...

Andar. Una filosofía es un recorrido (a pie), filosófico y literario, en compañía de ilustres autores como Rimbaud, Thoreau o Kant cuyo hilo conductor es el easy hecho de caminar. Andar como experiencia de libertad, como acto solitario y propicio para los angeles ensoñación, como motor de creatividad...

Este libro es una celebración del paseo y una reivindicación de virtudes elementales que parecemos haber olvidado en esta época de prisas y de monotonía. Desde un enfoque cultural, Frédéric Gros se adhiere a los angeles corriente de lo gradual y nos invita a valorar las ventajas de l. a. lentitud. «Para ir más despacio no se ha encontrado nada mejor que andar. Para andar hacen falta ante todo dos piernas. Todo lo demás es superfluo. ¿Quieren ir más rápido? Entonces no caminen, hagan otra cosa: rueden, deslícense, vuelen».

La crítica ha dicho...
«Un hermoso libro escrito para aquellos que aún no han partido.»
Le Figaro

«Un libro inclasificable en el que l. a. luz de los angeles mañana ilumina las ideas.»

«Un admirable libro que entusiasmará incluso a los sedentarios empedernidos.»
Le Monde des Livres

«Un paseo tranquilo, al ritmo de un pensamiento cálido y pertinente, que de manera eficaz toma tintes de delicado reproche hacia una sociedad en los angeles que los angeles velocidad, con demasiada frecuencia, se confunde con el olvido de los angeles veracidad de las cosas, del yo y de los demás.»

«La fuerza de este libro consiste en invitarnos a inscribir nuesros pasos en itinerarios al mismo tiempo singulares y universales.»

«Un libro tan agradable como profundo.»
La Croix

Example text

Scripture looks at the deep fractures of our heart and tells us to admit that we can never prove our worth; Jesus made us worthy by his sacrifice. This part of the message of Christianity will help a young generation that is trying to understand the constant struggle between loving God and trying to please him. • Third, the motivation of transparency is important. The culture teaches people to be candid and blunt, but this usually revolves around self-centeredness—you have a right to express your true feelings and your rage.

That is, even among people who believe they are personally being saved by faith in Jesus, they think of salvation as a multiple-choice test, with many reasonable possibilities: while they believe their own spiritual destiny is secure through faith in Christ, they also believe that others could be saved through being a good person or because of God's benevolence. Second, we can also look at the views of churchgoers for evidence. In a study we conducted for Freedom in Christ Ministries, we explored the perspectives of those who attend church in a typical month.

It leads us to believe we should know because we have it all together. 59 UNCHRISTIAN DEALING WITH THE DIRT We can be defensive about the idea that we are hypocritical. We can ignore it. Yet what if cultures accusations of hypocrisy are God's way of waking us up to the overwhelming needs of others? What if he is using our culture to make us aware of our hollow religiosity and empty answers? Busters and Mosaics are searching for authenticity. They want to find people to trust and confide in, but they often find more transparent, authentic people outside the church.
