Penser et agir à l'échelle du vivant
In eight essays, this “unburdener” of spirits expresses a wisdom in which man, suffering from gigantism, cures himself of his excess and the evils it engenders by gradually rising to the scale of nature within him. From then on, peace, health and contentment are the direct result of thinking and acting in a way that is increasingly right. With Wendell Berry, man and earth are mutually fertile in a permanent dialogue where work becomes pleasure and pleasure contributes to the health of the world. Both engage the whole being in a single movement of liberation. This movement is driven by the assurance of one’s own vocation and the use of nature as a yardstick for accepting one’s own limits.
