Overview

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 los angeles 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 uncomplicated 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 los angeles luz de l. a. mañana ilumina las ideas.»
L'Express

«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 l. a. que l. a. velocidad, con demasiada frecuencia, se confunde con el olvido de l. a. veracidad de las cosas, del yo y de los demás.»
Figaroscope

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

«Un libro tan agradable como profundo.»
La Croix
