Description

Alexandre Jollien is physically handicapped and spent seventeen years in a specialised institution.  Instead of letting his disability get the better of him, he chose to surpass it and, rather than see it as an obstacle, he turned his “weakness” into a springboard for wholeheartedly and freely moving towards his inner self.

 In the form of a dialogue with Socrates, he tells us of the many years he spent in a centre for the disabled, how he suffered from the lack of affection from the care workers, but also of the bonds he created, and of his encounter with philosophy which was to transform his life.  He reflects upon normality, and gives a sometimes critical view of the educational system and our behaviour towards those we consider to be “different”.

 The trials that Alexandre Jollien he has been through have not affected his positive outlook on life.  His book is also one of friendship and gratitude for those who society often calls “weak” or “vulnerable”, and who have taught him that we should not to rely on the way others view us for developing our own personality.
