Faced with injustice and current difficulties: avoid resignation and choose action
Choosing our life and becoming ourselves: this is the purpose of the book by Jacques Attali. Faced with worsening social injustices, unemployment crises, isolation... Jacques Attali urges us to refrain from resignation and instead take action. Drawing on a number of examples, he shows how, from Gandhi to Edward Snowden, Abbé Pierre to Bill Gates, the Buddha to Picasso, remarkable destinies can for each of us become, not models but rather the proof: everyone can make a life out of their existence. A true life, as we have more freedom than we think, but for that we must have confidence in ourselves, question ourselves and dare, dare to become ourselves... He then explores the different notions of “become oneself”: what do religion, philosophers, writers and psychologists say about it? Furthermore, Jacques Attali offers us some of the keys to confronting the seemingly insurmountable difficulties in becoming ourselves. Becoming oneself is a path which leads us through a number of stages and above all enables us to understand that “a good life is a life where we continually search for ourselves, where we successively and simultaneously find ourselves countless times”.
