Les trois sagesses chinoises : Taoïsme, confucianisme, by Cyrille Javary

By Cyrille Javary

Quelles sont les valeurs éthiques et spirituelles des Chinois et que peuvent-elles nous apprendre ? Les mots « dieu », « esprit », « immortalité » ont-ils pour eux le même sens qu'en Occident ? Le taoïsme, le confucianisme et le bouddhisme sont-ils des croyances, des philosophies, des sagesses ? À partir de sa connaissance intime de los angeles Chine, Cyrille Javary, auteur d'une monumentale traduction du Yi Jing, nous introduit à los angeles conception qu'ont les Chinois eux-mêmes de leur univers spirituel et nous donne les clefs pour l'aborder, non pas à partir de catégories occidentales inadéquates, mais à partir des mots chinois eux-mêmes. Du chamanisme archaïque et toujours vivace aux cultes contemporains, tel celui de Mao, en passant par les enseignements de Laozi et de Confucius, il retrace avec clarté une histoire plurimillénaire de rivalités autant que de dialogues et d'influences. Surtout, il nous montre ce que ces sagesses ont d'universel, et en quoi elles nous permettent de mieux comprendre le monde moderne et los angeles Chine actuelle.

Mais l. a. violence de l. a. pureté du cri sont à los angeles mesure d'une grande exigence, ce texte chaud, à chaque rapid, témoigne du souci des hommes, d'une authentique universalité humaine. Il s'inscrit dans los angeles lignée de ces textes majeurs qui ne cessent de réveiller en chacun de nous l. a. générosité de l. a. lucidité révolutionnaires. Le Discours sur le colonialisme est suivi du Discours sur l. a. Négritude, qu'Aimé Césaire a prononcé à l'Université Internationale de Floride (Miami), en 1987.
