By Frédéric Gros

Overview

Título unique: Marcher, une philosophie

Caminar es mucho más que poner un pie delante del otro. ¿Y si solo se pudiera pensar bien a través de los pies?

«Un admirable libro que entusiasmará incluso a los sedentarios empedernidos.»
Le Monde des Livres

Andar no exige ni aprendizaje, ni técnica, ni fabric ni dinero. Sólo requiere de un cuerpo, de espacio y de tiempo. Cada día son más los aficionados a caminar, y todos ellos obtienen los beneficios de esa propensión: sosiego, comunión con l. a. naturaleza, plenitud...

Andar. Una filosofía es un recorrido (a pie), filosófico y literario, en compañía de ilustres autores como Rimbaud, Thoreau o Kant cuyo hilo conductor es el uncomplicated hecho de caminar. Andar como experiencia de libertad, como acto solitario y propicio para l. a. ensoñación, como motor de creatividad...

Este libro es una celebración del paseo y una reivindicación de virtudes elementales que parecemos haber olvidado en esta época de prisas y de monotonía. Desde un enfoque cultural, Frédéric Gros se adhiere a l. a. corriente de lo gradual y nos invita a valorar las ventajas de l. a. lentitud. «Para ir más despacio no se ha encontrado nada mejor que andar. Para andar hacen falta ante todo dos piernas. Todo lo demás es superfluo. ¿Quieren ir más rápido? Entonces no caminen, hagan otra cosa: rueden, deslícense, vuelen».

La crítica ha dicho...
«Un hermoso libro escrito para aquellos que aún no han partido.»
Le Figaro

«Un libro inclasificable en el que l. a. luz de l. a. mañana ilumina las ideas.»
L'Express

«Un admirable libro que entusiasmará incluso a los sedentarios empedernidos.»
Le Monde des Livres

«Un paseo tranquilo, al ritmo de un pensamiento cálido y pertinente, que de manera eficaz toma tintes de delicado reproche hacia una sociedad en los angeles que l. a. velocidad, con demasiada frecuencia, se confunde con el olvido de los angeles veracidad de las cosas, del yo y de los demás.»
Figaroscope

«La fuerza de este libro consiste en invitarnos a inscribir nuesros pasos en itinerarios al mismo tiempo singulares y universales.»
L'Humanité

«Un libro tan agradable como profundo.»
La Croix

That whole this denced by the difficulty results fact that we apply from confused thinking is evi- the hereditarian explanation most which require some depth of analysis for their understanding. We do not apply it to simple situations. Thus, no one supposes that the fact that American-born students speak to speak English means that those students have inherited an ability readily to those situations We assume that they simply learned to speak English. If we did inherit an ability to speak English, presumably the task of than it is.

We offset it to the best of our ability by carefully checking our own results with those of other investigators and by demanding of ourselves the most scrupulous accuracy. In some restricted areas of investigation we may approach method of experiment somewhat more closely. Thus in observing the reactions of children, we may let them play together in a nursery which is equipped with a type of screen permitting an individual outside the room to see into it, but not permitting the occupants of the room to see out.

Are saying here is, in effect, that if you want to learn about any aspect of life, the first thing you have to do is to look at it. That is what observation is: looking at the things you want to 23 BASIC SOCIOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES 24 study. All of us, of course, look at things. The point about scientific observation is that it must be done in a special way if its results are to be valid. We therefore refer to it as controlled observation. There are several ways of controlling our observations. For example, physical sciences such as chemistry and physics can subject observation to a very rigid control by using the experimental method and procedures.
