Dictionnaire des symboles : Mythes, Rêves, Coutumes, Gestes, by Jean and Gheerbrant, Alain Chevalier

By Jean and Gheerbrant, Alain Chevalier

C'est trop peu dire que nous vivons dans un monde de symboles et qu'un monde de symboles vit en nous. De l. a. psychanalyse à l'anthropologie, de los angeles critique d'art à l. a. publicité et à l. a. propagande politique, sciences, arts et concepts essayent de décrypter ces différents codes, tant pour élargir le champ de nos connaissances, tant pour apprivoiser l'énergie sous-jacente à nos actes et à nos comportements. À travers quelques 1 six hundred articles, le lecteur circule à travers cette forêt de symboles dont les ramifications se poursuivent dans les strates les plus cachées de notre mémoire. En effet, l'expression symbolique traduit l'effort de l'homme pour déchiffrer et maîtriser un destin qui lui échappe, tant semblent impénétrables les obscurités qui l'entourent.
