New PDF release: La bellezza in Oriente. Introduzione all’estetica orientale

By Roberto Terrosi

I paesi dell’Oriente ci sono stati presentati tradizionalmente come regni incantati, cristallizzati according toò nel loro passato. Oggi che alcuni di essi ambiscono a porsi al centro dell’economia mondiale in un mondo globale spietatamente competitivo, ci vengono presentati come dei minacciosi concorrenti tecnologicamente agguerriti. Si tratta allora di ripensare questa situazione, evitando sia di appiattirli su un immaginario fiabesco e misticheggiante, sia di schiacciarli sui soli numeri del mondo degli affari, consistent with cercare di comprenderne le tradition nella loro originalità, come paesi “adulti” con cui confrontarci su un piano di parità. Pensiamo che il modo migliore di farlo sia di partire dalla bellezza, perché ci presenta un aspetto attraente, ma anche profondo di queste tradition e si pone dunque come l’invito ottimale alla loro comprensione.
