Download E-books Le parti pris des animaux PDF

By Jean-Christophe Bailly

Les huit textes qui composent ce livre sont tous consacrés aux animaux.

La shock et le joie qu’ils existent, les craintes envers une disparition qui semble hélas programmée pour beaucoup d’entre eux, ces motifs s’entremêlent à ceux du regard et du silence. Ce que dit et répète ce livre, c’est que les animaux, qui font rayonner l’existence hors des rets du langage, exercent pourtant envers nous los angeles pression intimante d’un autre accès au sens. C’est ce sens éperdu, confondu au vivant, qui est poursuivi ici.
