About this title


L'Orient traditionnel, avec ses poetes (Khayyam, Saadi...), ses savants et ses philosophes (Avicenne), le livre sacre du Coran et les proverbes du bon sens populaire, qu'illustrent Les Mille et Une Nuits, est riche d'une sagesse - c'est-a-dire d'une philosophie pratique - tour a tour fataliste et joyeuse, invitant a jouir de la vie et de l'instant, sans exces, mais dans la plenitude.
Gilbert Sinoue rassemble ici dictons et citations autour de la figure traditionnelle du Medjdoub, ce personnage a la fois sage
et fou qui, de l'Irak a la Perse et du Maroc a l'Asie centrale, apportait la sagesse immemoriale a qui voulait bien lui ouvrir
sa porte.
Ne lui fermons pas la notre. Il nous provoque, il nous etonne, il nous fait rire ou nous donne a songer. Nous nous souviendrons longtemps de son passage.

Citations de Avicenne, Ibn Arabi, Khayyam, Saadi, Hafiz, Sohravardi, Mahomet, Averroes, Rumi...
