On lit volontiers l'Enfer de Dante mais pas son Paradis, parce qu'on se représente spontanément ce dernier comme un néant immaculé dans la monotonie des alléluias sans fin. Sans craindre la contradiction, on se dit que le bienheureux doit s'y ennuyer ferme comme un rat mort. Or le paradis dantesque est bien plus différencié et violent que son enfer. Béatrice y déclare au poète : "Si tu voyais mon rire, tu serais réduit en cendres". Voilà pourquoi, nous repliant sur nos petits paradis artificiels (qui deviennent bientôt des cercueils sur mesure), nous mettons le vrai paradis à la porte : nous avons peur de ce qui nous dépasse, nous redoutons l'exigence de sa joie. Mais, de derrière la porte, le paradis continue de frapper. Il frappe avec la vie. Il cogne avec la mort déjoue nos plans, veut nous ouvrir à l'inespéré.

Maître Oscar, luthier de renom, est terrassé par une maladie inexpliquée. Sur son lit de mort, il confie à son jeune disciple, Jérémie, une mission mystérieuse. Ce testament lui fera découvrir une tradition musicale remontant aux templiers. Ce jeune homme et son amie Constance vont êtres plongés dans une intrigue passionnante à propos de la puissance de la musique.

Cela leur donne les outils philosophiques nécessaires à leur enquête. Avec eux, le lecteur découvrira que les oeuvres de musique sacrée contemporaines ne sont pas uniquement celles que l'on croit... Confrontés à l'antique confrérie des Batouros, ils seront amenés à risquer leur vie pour protéger la grande tradition du Salve Regina des templiers. Ce thriller philosophique et musical se présente comme une sorte d'enquête symphonique en trois mouvements, tous nécessaires pour saisir le mystère de la musique sacrée. Encore aujourd'hui, elle peut détruire ou construire.

Comment la philosophie aide à aimer le réel jusque dans ses épreuves. Voir la vie en rose, dans l'impatience d'un bonheur immédiat, sans épreuve et sans nuages, nous amène trop souvent à broyer du noir... Car comment réaliser la valeur de ce qu'on possède comme un acquis, de ce qu'on a jamais perdu, de ce pour quoi on n'a jamais tremblé, de ce pour quoi on ne s'est jamais battu ? Et si nous apprenions à voir la vie en bleu ? A nous réconcilier avec nos difficultés et à ouvrir les yeux sur ce qu'elles nous apportent de positif ? À accepter les épines des roses, et les ecchymoses que nous fait l'existence ? Une promenade philosophique autour des grands enjeux de nos vies (l'amour et la confiance, le risque et la prudence, la mort et la vie...), comme un manuel de mieux-vivre.

"This is surely a new paradigm for the study of history that will be regarded as revolutionary but which is also well justified. To my knowledge, no other book integrates the study of human history with principles of biological and cultural evolution on such an ambitious scale."--David Sloan Wilson, author of Darwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion and the Nature of Society "This is one of the most exciting books I've read in years. It is so accessible, so groundbreaking, so stimulating, so important that I imagine the next generation of historians will be deeply influenced by what Smail has to say here. Simply dazzling."--Lynn Hunt, author of Inventing Human Rights

Paris Spleen, and La Fanfarlo

Paris Spleen, and La Fanfarlo

Author: Charles Baudelaire
Publisher: Hackett Publishing
ISBN: 160384046X
Pages: 176
Year: 2008-09-15
Paris Spleen, a diverse collection of fifty prose poems, is provided here in a clear, engaging, and accurate translation that conveys the lyricism and nuance of the original French text. Also included is a translation of Baudelaire's early novella, La Fanfarlo, which, alongside Paris Spleen, sheds light on the development of Baudelaire's work over time. Raymond N. MacKenzie's introductory essay discusses Baudelaire's life and the literary climate in which he lived and worked. Focusing on the theory of the prose poem, MacKenzie suggests that Baudelaire turned to this form for both aesthetic and ethical reasons, and because the form allowed him to explore more fully the complexities of the modern, urban, human condition. By turns comic, somber, satiric, and self-questioning, Paris Spleen is one of the nineteenth century's richest masterpieces.

Faith and reason, especially in Roman Catholic thought, are less contradictory today than ever. But does the supposed opposition even make sense to begin with? One can lose faith, but surely not because one gains in reason. Some, in fact, lose faith when reason is not able to make sense of the experiences of our lives. We very quickly realize that reason does not understand everything. Immense areas remain incomprehensible and irrational, which we abandon to belief and opinion. Soon we definitively renounce thinking what that has been excluded from the realm of the thinkable. Ideological nightmares arise from this slumber of reason. Thus, the separation between faith and reason, too quickly taken as self-evident and even natural, is born from a lack of rationality, an easy capitulatin of reason before what is supposedly unthinkable. Rather than lose faith through excessive rationality, we often lose rationality because faith is too quickly excluded from the realm that it claims to open, that of revelation. We lose reason by losing faith. Examining such topics as the role of the intellectual in the church, the rationality of faith, the infinite worth and incomprehensibility of the human, the phenomenality of the sacraments, and the phenomenological nature of miracles and of revelation more broadly, this book spans the range of Marion's thought on Christianity. Throughout he stresses that faith has its own rationality, structured according to the logic of the gift that calls forth a response of love and devotion through kenotic abandon.
