Explore a thrilling world : the essence of the self.
What is an inner life? Can everyone claim to have one? Is everyone's the same? How can it be nurtured? Patrice Van Eersel posed this question to eight different figures: the psychiatrist Christophe André, the neurologist Stanislas Dehaene, the paediatrician Catherine Dolto, the mathematician Cédric Villani, the singer Arthur H., the Sufi master Sheikh Bentounès, the biblical scholar Annick de Souzenelle and the poet Christian Bobin. Over the course of these interviews, what emerges is a multi-faceted and yet singular inner life, hidden treasure, the most profound part of the self. From “the soundless interiority” to “the inner children playing hide and seek”, from the “meeting place between the terrestrial and divine worlds” to “resetting your inner software”, explore a thrilling world: the essence of the self.
