About the Author

Né en 1946, fils de Jean-François Revel, docteur en biologie moléculaire à l'institut Pasteur sous la direction de François Jacob, Matthieu Ricard a abandonné sa brillante carrière scientifique pour se convertir au bouddhisme qu'il a découvert à la fin des années 1960. Ordonné moine en 1978, il est devenu l'un des spécialistes mondiaux du bouddhisme et accompagne fréquemment le Dalaï-Lama dans ses voyages en qualité d'interprète. Le moine et le philosophe (NiL Éditions, 1997), retranscription d'un dialogue qu'il eut avec son père, le philosophe Jean-François Revel, fut un best-seller en France avant d'être traduit en vingt langues. Il a publié d'autres ouvrages, parmi lesquels un album photographique L'esprit du Tibet (Seuil, 1996), des essais : L'infini dans la paume de la main avec Thrinh Xuan Thuan (NiL Éditions, 2000), Plaidoyer pour le bonheur (NiL Éditions, 2003) ainsi que de nombreuses traductions de textes tibétains. Établi depuis 1972 dans les Himalayas, il vit au monastère de Shétchen au Népal.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good book for anyone interested in both science and Buddhism. The French language version is the original but it's equally useful in English.
