Original title: La révolution du regard silencieux
A formidable yet accessible voice that has the power to touch the heart and leave the reader transformed. For readers who feel that humans haven’t been doing well for far too long. Fans of François Cheng and Hubert Reeves will find that this essay feeds their aspirations.
Without realizing it, our attention has become a commodity. In today’s hyper-connected world, is it possible to be genuinely present? Does being virtually everywhere ultimately amount to being nowhere?
In Revolution of the Silent Gaze, The reader is invited to see and think beyond a society guided by performance and overconsumption. There is an urgent need to change the way we view the world. It is only through awareness of this alienation, by muting the ego and embracing this silent gaze, that doing so becomes possible.
The author advocates for a slower lifestyle, one that moves away from modern-day conformism to approach reality from a different perspective. Our capacity for wonder in the face of reality—our true power, he argues—must be awakened.
