François Jullien has long been one of the world’s preeminent sinologists — a specialist in Chinese thought. Over the last decade, he has also emerged as one of today’s leading thinkers, exploring inter-cultural relations between China and the West. He is re-examining the major issues of contemporary life, such as intimacy (De l’Intime, Grasset, 2013) and the question of dialogue between cultures (On the Universal, Wiley, 2014). His writings, highly subtle, lively, and accessible, invite us to rediscover the intensity that lies hidden in all aspects of our life.

Intimacy is not a physical thing, it’s about what’s inside… the interior (Francois Julien notes furthermore that in opposition there is not more on the exterior than the interior).

Рискувах и си го купих. Бях много скептичен, тъй като на български език рядко се издават смислени научни изследвания. Повечето такива са съобразени с ниското ниво на българския читател и не са интересни за хора, които не искат отново и отново да им се поднасят банални факти и информация. Веднага бях запленен от ерудицията на автора - фактът, че скачаше с лекота (и напълно правомерно) из различни епохи, даваше адекватни примери. Адмирации и за факта, че например, си позволява да говори за античната култура и знае койне, а не просто си цитира някакви примерчета от античната литература. Идеята му за понятието "интимно" в противовес на понятието "любов" е адекватно изведена и защитена през цялото време. Без да парадира с много знания, си личи че Франсоа Жулиен отлично познава и проблемите на постмодерната философия. Опитът му да впише понятието "интимно" е адекватен на цялостната програма на постмодерността, която отново и отново се връща към анализ на предпоставките, залегнали в т.нар. модерност.
Адмирации този път към изд. Изток-Запад за изданието. Нужни са ни повече такива книги на български език!
